(Newser) – That may be Richard III's skeleton found under a British parking lot—but what about Henri IV's long-lost skull?

A new book about the French monarch argues that his skull turned up in the attic of a retired tax collector, the Guardian reports. Critics groan that Henri IV: The Mystery of a Headless King relies more on fiction than fact, but one expert says DNA tests link the skull to decapitated royal Louis XVI, who shared Henri IV's genetic heritage ...

Can't the English keep track of the remains of their own kings?

Eh? What has that question got to do with Henry IV's skull?

The same skull that supposedly "turned up in the attic of a retired tax collector," or is that where you're keeping deceased "heads of state" these days?

Henry IV = English = Buried in Canturbury

Henri IV = French = Buried in Saint Denis (Paris) = during the French Revolution,the head of his embalmed body was lost after revolutionaries ransacked and desecrated his grave in 1793 and removed his head.

The English are not to be blamed for losing their head this time, the French are to blame.

Exactly - and there is nothing in the article that suggested this was about a British king - hence my initial question,

"A new book about the French monarch argues that his skull turned up in the attic of a retired tax collector....."

My post was for the people who live a bit futher away from Britain and the Continent. Not meant to critizise. Some people do not realize that Kings did not just die of old age and the new king took the vacant throne.

Some were killed in batttle, some were murdered in battle (fragging a modern day term), some died of battle wounds, some were killed in hunting accidents, some were just hated by others and were just mudered, relatives wanted the throne for themselves and found ways and helpers. Of course some did die a natural death.

Just writing this post I noticed how many kings were killed, did we have that many???

My bad; he was Henri, not Henry.

I thought this Henry was Henry Bolingbroke, later Henry IV, the "vacationing" English noble who crossed the channel from France to take possession of the British crown from Richard II.
