    In German, the word for "The Holy See" is "Der Heilige Stuhl", which could either mean "The Holy Stool" or "The Holy Shit".

    German is fun.

    I know a story about a Filipina who gave birth when she was visiting Vatican city so technically there's at least one person who was really born there. This "King" is not the same as the title "Holy Roman Emperor" aka Cesear

    I know you're saying it for the sake of simplicity, but the holy see isn't a corporation.
    It's an independent sovereign entity subject to international public law. Much like the order of Malta. (perhaps you should make a video about it, too)
    Also, the holy see has oldest diplomatic corp in history

    How can it be home of the Catholic Church if Christ wasn’t from Italy, makes no sense...

      Because Rome was the cultural and political centre of the ancient world, so Peter moved there to continue preaching and spreading the word. He's regarded as the first pope and prince of the apostles.
      That's the reason why, according to Catholic doctrine, the diocese of Rome presides over the rest of the church. And therefore the Bishop of Rome (ie. The pope) has supreme authority over all churches

    Not to say you're lying but this is all bull shoot what king has ever waited out an enemy for that long come on The Pope which is the jesuits took over When king James's dad who also cut off 3 of his wives heads one of them being king James's mom King James was a disgrace there were For measures put into place to make sure if the king ever died Someone other than king James would take over to keep A coup from happening changing kings usually means changing all the king's top Men new king new laws and no one wanted king James laws of homosexuality drugs Devil worshipping King James was always hidden he was a disgrace the Uncle were supposed to be the one to take the Place of king Henry VIII King James's dad The next to in line were the nephew's they came up missing in the castle and the Uncle was also Killed by the jesuits who knew that if king James was next in line there would be chaos and the Pope as the holy man could then step in And call for peace A short while later king James Comes in on a white horse with God's work to do on The Bible And after The Bible king James is never heard of again why do we night ever hear about king James the golly man who had a message from God to write The Bible They told people in small villages and towns across the country In the churches the Pope was a Saint to were easily convinced That the war and fighting going on Over the writing of The Bible in English was because A group of people did not believe that English was A good enough language for such holy words Meanwhile the war was over the changing of The Bible by the jesuits which rule every country every president Of every nation notice how there is no more kings you never hear from kings You hear of the Queen of England but where's the king I think I seen him on the news the other day as a door boy opening doors for people because there can only be one king and Knight is the Pope notice how every nation's leader bows before the Pope It is hidden in plain sight this is already a one world order Every war every Every conflict is orchestrated by the Pope and the jesuits Jesus was a messenger he brought A message What he is not a Saint only the Pope's are saints and their message is the message of a Saint which trumps the message of a messenger the pope is made himself a Saint The only Saint in the world What a perfect disguise for The head of the Jesuit Controllers

    The Vatican actually has an army, but it's hard to call it one cause it's small. They inherited it from the Papal States, and even used to have a Navy. When Italy invaded and took over, only 4 units: the Pontifical Swiss Guard, the Palatine Guard, the Noble Guard and the Papal Gendarmerie Corps (now the Police) were retained. In the 70s I think the Palatine and Noble Guards were disbanded, and only the Swiss Guards and the now Gendarme Police is left.

      Yes, but a constitutional monarchy, not an absolute one. The royalty in the UK have basically no power over what goes on in the country, the parliament does. Unlike say Saudi Arabia, which has a legislative body (Consultative Assembly) that has no enforcement power, the monarchy in Saudi Arabia holds all the power.

    You didn't mention that both the Holy See AND Vatican City issue passports. Both types of passports use the same country code, but they have different designs (including different languages).

    If the Vatican is reliant on outside forces to reproduce. Why couldn't Italy out wait him. All they would have to do is not let anybody else into the city right? Just let their own stupidity be their downfall.

    4:50 Not quite; the UN only recognizes The Holy See as an observer, it is not a member and never has been.
    The Holy See has the right to attend UN Assemblies as an entity, but it cannot put forward candidates, submit proposals or vote in any manner.
    Of course the UN does not allow Vatican City membership due to the monarch thing, but it does recognize that The Holy See holds sovereign statehood over Vatican City.
