* KnightFever : John Hurt's character is called 'Lord Percival Graves', but is a member of the House of Lords so is a peer. British peers are never called 'Lord Firstname Surname'; this style is only used by a younger son of a duke or marquess.

After a freak accident wipes out most of the British royal family, [[HiddenBackupPrince the only heir that can be found]] is American lounge singer Ralph Jones. Accepting the job assuming he won't really have to do anything, Ralph soon learns there's more expected of him. He struggles to become a good king with the help of his chief advisor, Sir Cedric Willingham. A burgeoning romance with Miranda Greene causes problems. She is from a working-class family and is not considered an acceptable match for a king. He also has to deal with the machinations of Lord Percival Graves, who is certain he could become king himself if only he could get Ralph to abdicate, and hopes to use Miranda to do so.

*** Also, Ralph [[spoiler: and Cedric]] wouldn't be referred to as "the first"-there can't be a "first" monarch until there's been a second monarch with the same name (which is why UsefulNotes/QueenVictoria is just "Victoria", not "Victoria the First").
