Why do people come to Germany and complain about discrimination when they speak in English?

@Ceili,
Well, the English female royals like(d) to marry German princes ...
(The House of Hanover actually was in German Chur-Braunschweig-Lüneburg, shortened Braunschweig-Lüneburg, in English Elector-Brunswick-Luneburg)

They had to marry Protestants. In my opinion, it was expedient, since the German prince might not likely turn into a Trojan Horse, so to speak. Perhaps, they were willing to be Anglicized? Not so much perhaps, for other country's Protestant princes?

@Foofie,
The House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha was known for it's 'marriage politics': they are not only 'present' in England, but in the royal houses of Belgium, Portugal, Bulgaria, Sweden as well - some very strong Catholic dynasties , not all Anglicans, I think ...

Empress Eadgyth's bones "are the oldest surviving remains of an English royal burial" it as said. But she was the wife of Otto I, Holy Roman Emperor...

@Ceili,
We've been today to Hannover, visted the parks there. They've a mausoleum with some of Queen Lizzie's great... grandparents (including some English royals) buried in it.
