All Presidents of the United States from George Washington to Barack Obama are descendants of King Henry II, who ruled England from 1154 to 1189, so the imperial rulers of the American Empire are all part of the Plantagenet Dynasty of United States Presidents.
Within the Plantagenet Dynasty are numerous subhouses from various branches of the House of Plantagenet who ruled England and France from 1126 to 1485. The two most recent powerful Plantagenet Houses who have ruled the American Empire are the Jacobean Dynasty and the Hinckley Dynasty.
The Jacobean Dynasty
Six individuals can be counted as part of the Jacobean Dynasty -- John Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, Ted Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Maria Shriver, Hillary Clinton, and Donald Trump. They are all descendants of King James II who ruled Scotland 1437 to 1460.
The Jacobean Dynasty of US Presidents ruled over the American Empire from 1960 to 1963, and again from 1992 to 2000. They appear set to regain power in 2016.
The Jacobean Dynasty began when John Kennedy was elected as President, and briefly ended when he was assassinated in 1963.
The Jacobean Dynasty almost regained power when his brother Robert Kennedy was on track to win as President in 1968, but ended when he was assassinated during the Primaries.
The Jacobean Dynasty continued in partial power as Ted Kennedy ruled as a powerful Senator from 1962 to 2009.
The Jacobean Dynasty almost regained power when Ted Kennedy ran for President in 1980, but lost the nomination to James Carter of one of the numerous rival houses of the Plantagent Dynasty.
The Jacobean Dynasty began to regain power when Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton ruled Arkansas from 1979 to 1981, and again from 1983 to 1992.
The Jacobean Dynasty regained imperial power when Bill Clinton ascended to the imperial throne and ruled from 1992 to 2000, reigning over one of the most prosperous periods of the American Empire.
The Jacobean Dynasty gained power in California when Maria Shriver, married to Arnold Schwarzenegger, became First Lady of California from 2003 to 2011.
The Hinckley Dynasty
Five individuals can be counted as part of the Hinckley Dynasty -- John Hinckley Jr, George HW Bush, George W Bush, Barack Obama, and Sarah Palin. They are all descendants of Samuel Hinckley who lived in Massachusetts in the 1700s.
The Hinckley Dynasty of US Presidents ruled over the American Empire from 1980 to 1992, and again from 2000 to 2016.
The Hinckley Dynasty began when George HW Bush was elected as Vice-President under Ronald Reagan.
The Hinckley Dynasty almost took total power when John Hinckley Jr attempted to assassinate Reagan, which would have made his cousin George HW Bush President. Meanwhile Bush remained as Vice-President for eight years.
The Hinckley Dynasty continued when George HW Bush became President for four years, during which he began the Thirty Year Oil War when he invaded Iraq to gain control of its oil wells.
The Hinckley Dynasty was briefly overthrown when Bill Clinton, of the Jacobean Dynasty, ascended to the imperial throne of the American Empire for eight years.
The Hinckley Dynasty continued when George W Bush stole the election twice, defeating powerful members of rival houses, and he ruled with an incompetent rubber fist for eight years, nearly destroying the American Empire through incompetence, greed, and warmongering by continuing the Thirty Year Oil War.
The Hinckley Dynasty gained more power when two Hinckleys, cousins Barack Obama and Sarah Palin, ran for President and Vice-President respectively on the tickets of both major parties.
The Hinckley Dynasty continued when Barack Obama ascended the imperial throne of the American Empire for eight years, restoring the American Empire to its former glory through competence, compassion, and expansion of civil rights for all citizens.
Struggle for Power
The Hinckley Dynasty appeared set to continue its hold on power over the American Empire when Jeb Bush decided to run for President, but Donald Trump, of the Jacobean Dynasty, entered the race and pummeled him into irrelevance, thus ending the reign of the Hinckleys.
The Jacobean Dynasty appears set to regain imperial power over the American Empire with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump running for President on the tickets of both major parties. It appears more likely that Hillary Clinton will ascend the imperial throne.
During the War of the Roses, which lasted for over thirty years from 1455 to 1487, the Houses of Lancaster and York fought for control, until they united under Henry VIII.
While there is a new struggle for power between the rival houses of Jacob and Hinckley, the House of Plantagenet continues its two-century hold on imperial control over the American Empire.
