    It substantially depends on which kings and in which century you are interested.

    On a visit I made to a Tudor house earlier this year, where they were trying to recreate an authentic 16th-century atmosphere, the staff, dressed in period costume and speaking the language of the Tudors, referred to the toilets formally as 'The house of easement', and informally as 'the jakes'.

    Fortunately for the benefit of visitors and to comply with Health & Safety law they had installed modern plumbing!
