Pub "Prince Frederick"[edit]

I wonder how relevant this is. Besides, do we know if the pub "Prince Frederick" is named after Prince Frederick, Duke of York and Albany, or his grandfather, Frederick, Prince of Wales? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.117.72.89 (talk) 09:48, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Supposed plot to make Frederick King of the United States[edit]

The footnote supposedly verifying the existence of such a plot is only a link to the U.S. Constitution, which was written the same summer as the supposed plot. However, this document's only reference to monarchy is that all states are required to maintain a "Republican form of Government", which does nothing to verify the existence of such a plot and would seem to indicate a lack of its seriousness if there were such. The Constitution also explictly forbids both the United States and individual states from granting anyone "any title of Nobility". From this, it would seem the actual possibilty of the enthronement of Frederick as some sort of an American monarch was somewhere between very slight and completely nonexistant. While this sort of story certainly sounds like the sort of speculative "journalism" frequently engaged in by the newspapers of the era, if there is no link to at least one such article of publication then this story is perhpas no more than either something briefly or passingly speculated about in a very limited area or completely apocryphal. If no reliable source for the existence of this purported plot can be referred to, it doesn't belong in the article. 72.104.151.106 (talk) 20:25, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

I tend to agree and would have no difficulty if the sentence was removed. Dormskirk (talk) 22:04, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
