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,
