  1. Royalties began when the "upper classes" in England, France and other countries owned all the land, and received a continuous passive income from the "rent" of the tenants but in this case Operators who produce Oil & Gas from Mineral rights you'll own.

    Because the people who received these ongoing payments were the Princes, Dukes, and Earls, the payments came to be called "Royalties".
