comment Did early nineteenth century commoners know their royalty?
News about cardinals? Well, I am sure news about cardinals and bishops never were as important as those about the government even at the height of the Church influence in the Middle Ages. Unless said cardinals were also the ministers at the same time, like Mazarin or Richelieu.

comment Did early nineteenth century commoners know their royalty?
@Tacy Stine this depends on the age, it is possible to assume that a child or a teenager of say 14, especially a girl may not be interested in politics and not know who the head of state is or may confuse the things badly.
