In the Middle Ages, Prince Edmund the Black Adder constantly schemes and endeavors to seize the crown from his father and brother.
Percy, Duke of Northumberland:
Oh Edmund, can it be true that I hold in my hand a nugget of purest Green?
Blackadder is throughout the series referred to as the Duke of Edinburgh, a title that was first bestowed by King George I in 1726, on his grandson, Prince Frederick Lewis, in the Peerage of Great Britain. In the 1480s, the King of England had no jurisdiction over Scotland, where Edinburgh is. Giving Edmund an anachronistic, geographically useless title is a joke, as explained in the DVD special features.
Each episode's "cast in order of..." credit is different depending on the plot of the episode. "Witchsmeller Pursuivant," for instance, introduces the cast "in order of Witchiness," and "The Black Seal" introduces them "in order of disappearance." "The Black Seal" also lists Tim McInnerny's character as "Percy, a Poisoner" (watch the episode to find out why)
