Where did the Knighthood come from Texan-born billionaire Sir () Allen Stanford's corporate website claims that, after he became a citizen of the Commonwealth territory of Antigua, it appointed him a Knight Commander of the Most Distinguished Order of the Nation. His knighthood was bestowed in 2006 under an Antiguan law that allows its politicians to draw up an annual honours list. This is wrong, and makes a mockery of all of those GREAT people who have received this honorary decoration in the past. The British Royal Family must take this crooks Knighthood away!! Please sign my petition to have his Knighthood removed

Christopher Melvin, United States3 years ago Comments: Quote: "The United States Constitution explicitly states "No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign State." This absolutely rules out any formal, recognised aristocracy. When the USA became independent of Britain, the British aristocracy was powerful and much resented; the new nation wanted to do away with aristocracy. However, in some nations without a formal aristocracy, including the USA, the term is sometimes used informally for families which have been rich and powerful for several generations, though without formal titles or rights."
