Origin of English Jun 18

In history, France and England had the same king and they exchanged culture including languages. New introduction of English words into France is not a wonder. New generation of French speak better English.

This is partially right but way back in History. Think of Guillaume le Conquérant (king of Enlgland in 11th century) of Aliènor d'Aquitaine Queen of England in the 12th century after she had been queen of "Les Francs".
For sure they had no clue of the internet in those times but it is true that round of 100-200 words of the basic french dictionary are from an english origin from this time.

Nice day ! Manuella

England was invaded by the Normans in 1066, who took over everything and established a dynasty that lasted for centurires. Entire cities were rebuilt; the so-called "great English cathedrals" were in fact great French cathedrals, built by French-speaking craftsmen. The French influence in British culture goes very deep.

Yes and he was the grandson of Charles VI, King of France. His mother was Catherine of Valois. His wife was Margaret of Anjou. The House of Plantagenet, rulers of the Kingdom of England (but of French origin) spent 100 years fighting the House of Valois, (also French) in an effort to decide who should rule. The indigenous English had been vassals of the French monarchy ever since 1066. All those castles dotted around England were built by the French (the Normans) to defend them from English rebellions. They are French castles.

... like the attitude to correct / point on grammar or spelling errors of other people, even of non-native fellow translators, although I must admit with a bit more (British) humor than by Germans ever would be possible

Hohenstaufen Jun 20

The current British royal family (the adjective "royal" is of French derivation) is German. Their real name is Hohenstaufen Saxe-Coburg Gotha. But in 1914, when the German Kaiser Wilhelm went to war against his English cousin, the English cousin changed it to the rather pathetic "Windsor".

A German joke is no laughing matter.

He will make you think differently, with striking arguments: Jun 20


A German joke is no laughing matter.

So far I know, Prince Ernst August of Hanover has not only a claim to the Crown of the United Kingdom, but also a very keen sense of humor. These are literally "striking" arguments against your theory (see link 2, "Controversy")

Nope, sorry. William the Conqueror was merely Duke of Normandy, not the king of France.
And queens are not kings, especially in France where there has never been a queen except as the wife of the king, never simply queen in her own right like the current British monarch.
