    2. You really need to study the political history of the UK. For a long time the UK was a functioning kingdom, but various forms of parliaments would be formed from the nobility. After 1066, the king's court was typically made of French people, but the previous Anglo-Saxon nobles formed the parliament, and power ebbed and flowed between the king and parliament. The current House of Lords is, in my view, a holdover from that time. And it emerged in the transition between a kingdom and an elected parliament which left the nobles with some power in the government. People who know history better than me might disagree and give a different/better description.
