Charles is a British writer, genealogist, local historian, computer scientist and philosophical commentator from Cheshire.
His political and philosophical influences are mostly synonymous, and have included the 20th century Traditionalist school, most prominently Julius Evola and Frithjof Schuon, and the Counter-Enlightenment philosophers Joseph de Maistre and Louis de Bonald. Plato’s The Republic, Nicolo Machiavelli’s The Prince and The Analects of Confucius are also major influences on his political foundation.
The Pillars of Thought
A constitution that is made for all nations is made for none.Joseph De Maistre
Strong and unspent races are not pacifistic. As long as man continues to evolve, there will be wars.Oswald Spengler
“Democracy is the power of equal votes for unequal minds.”Charles I of England
With a familial background tempered through generations of notable military strategists, his political inclinations and call to action are furnished in the fires of genetics and history.
Charles is a 33rd generation descendant of King Frederick II von Hohenstaufen through his father’s side, who defended Europe from the Mongol Raids of Genghis Khan, and is a member of the prominent Maltese aristocratic family De Apapis. His paternal line traces its roots back to his 20th great grandfather, captain Lancia De Apapis, born circa 1450 and commander of the Citadella of Rabat, Gozo during the Ottoman Raids, succesfully defending Malta from Muslim invasion for many years.
Much to the dismay of the progressive elite, Charles’ lineage also includes a slave trade survivor. His (white) Maltese 15th great uncle, Catholic priest Lorenzo de Apapis, was taken into slavery by Muslim pirates in 1551, before buying back his freedom and returning to the island three years later, successfully returning to his position as priest and rebuilding St George’s Church.
Charles has contributed research towards hundreds (and perhaps thousands) of published genealogical records and trees, and specialised in tracking rural-to-urban migration during the Industrial Revolution.
