For the Middle Ages? (or rather for the Middle Ages and Rennaissance).
Because the regicide and the populist revisions in the goverment, many
of which survived the restoration) are a clear indication that
the "Age of Kings" was actually over. The fact that the English Monarchy
has lingered on this long is only an indication of the comfort to be
found in an illusion of the past.
For the SCA? I don't propose it as that.
