Excerpt from Monarchs Retired From Business, Vol. 1 of 2

Whatever may be the origin of the term (the Latin form Of which, Rex, is from the Hebrew Roach, a chief, from which is derived Rayon), the first man who wore it is said to have been Shem, who is identified, by persons of more than ordinary acuteness, with Melchizedek, King of Salem. There is probably a truer, certainly a prettier, legend, which makes of Nimrod the first King who ever wore a crown. Pope Gregory VII. Used to say that the priesthood was de rived from God himself, but that imperial power had first been assumed by Nimrod. The story runs thus, as told in the Rabbinical traditions, and it fails to confirm the asser tion of Gregory.
