comment Why did Napoleon III coin the term “Latin America”?
A Hapsburg could qualify as "Latin" because the Hapsburgs ruled Spain (in the 16th century).

comment What is the term for a Monarchy with only a King or a Queen, but not both?
I don't think it had to do with "tired of the strict monarchical system." More likely it was a result of William's Dutch army representing the balance of power in an otherwise English "civil war" between Mary II and her father James II.

@NeilFein I (an English Language user with some reputation), improved the question somewhat, giving it a chance for it to be accepted there. You might also try ELL.

comment What is the origin and meaning of conniption dido
Even my detractors concede that "some" sources support the theory of the connection with Dido the Queen of Carthage. They just choose not to believe them. I do. Just because pieces of information aren't readily available on the internet today doesn't mean that they aren't buried somewhere in "antiquity."
