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???
