Lord Edmund Blackadder V is the modern day descendant of the Blackadder dynasty and is the seventh Blackadder shown in the series.

Lord Blackadder intends to play a turn-of-the-millennium-prank on his friends by claiming that he has a time machine - only to be unpleasantly surprised that the device that Baldrick has built (following Leonardo da Vinci's instructions to the letter, except for marking values on the instrument display) actually is a working time machine.

Blackadder manages to alter time by:

1. Having Baldrick kill a Tyrannosaurus with the odour of his underpants.

2. Accidentally leaving his biro with William Shakespeare and it turns out Shakespeare invented the biro.

3. Convincing Robin Hood's men to listen to him, causing Robin's men to kill him with arrows.

4. Landing the Time Machine on top of the Duke of Wellington during the battle of Waterloo and squashing him to death, resulting in the defeat of the English army, thus making Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte ruler of England.

He later puts history back on track, but minutes later travels back through time again, causing another alternate timeline, where he is the ruler of the United Kingdom, King Edmund III, who has a beautiful wife.
