Silly Brittish People...

In the weeks/months following the Revolutionary War, the newly created congress was puzzling on who should be president.  After all that fighting against the old system, after all those rallies and political speeches, they were going to revert to the system they knew - crowning Washington as King!  Good thing the old general has some clout (or good advisors, thanks Franklin/Jefferson) and told 'em to screw off!

If he hadn't... if he'd followed in most other leader's footsteps, we'd probably have some goofy royal family on our hands.  Can you believe the Brits actually have a celebrity family they pay for?  Celebrities that garnish wages, what'll they think of next?!
