An unwanted royal throne…

We enjoyed the Dublin Castle which was the seat of the British monarchy when they visited their subjects… however it is clear from our tour guide that those days a long gone… Apparently even kings in Ancient Ireland were elected… then had to prove their mettle before being accepted. While I agree with those “republican” sentiments… I am reminded that there is a King who not only has legal right to my hearts throne… but has proved his mettle on the Cross. Yet, so often I am like those in the second photo who protest the monarchs very thought of visiting. (In this case I understand the protest… but I speak spiritually)
