If I remember my words right, 'royaume' is kingdom in French. I'm not sure why it ends in -aume, but I know that it looks like the right word, as 'roi' is king in French (and i -> y when placed before another vowel) So.. if royaume is the incorrect word, anyone have an idea on what the correct one is (so i can memorize the RIGHT word? :P In conclusion, ~Arek - "The pessimist stomps and curses the wind.
