Are you deliberately being disingenuous? I am aware and do not dispute that "is a FACT (not a claim) that Franz is the senior co-heir general of King Charles I of England, France, Scotland, and Ireland". As I wrote, notwithstanding this genealogical fact, the Duke males no claim on the THRONES that his Stuart ancestors once occupied, and nor have his ancestors for generations. Therefore you, and others of like mind, cannot be termed 'followers'.
Moreover, since 1066 English constitutional history has repeatedly demonstrated that, unlike France, genealogical seniority does not automatically confer succession.
There is no point debating this much-mauled shibboleth except to point out that Common Law is trumped (an unfortunate choice of phrase) by Statute Law and that James II abandoned his thrones (quite literally) by flight, creating circumstances in which the Parliament asserted, yet again, its constitutional rights.
Finally, your references to Elizabeth Windsor are childish and unnecessarily demeaning (to you). Even with your world-view, would she not be styled 'Princess Elizabeth of Greece and Denmark'?
