List of monarchs III Since the last list fell apart and people discussed making a new thread with some formal rules, and no one's updated the list on the last thread, here's the new thread. The rules are simple. 1. Each poster get's one entry per list and must wait for at least one post by someone else before adding another entry. 2. Each entry must be logical, realistic (nothing involving Aliens, Magic, Time Travel, etc.), and with a footnote with information on their reign. 3. There can be no more than two active lists at any given time, splitting ONE list into TWO is allowed but MUST BE REALISTIC, and they have to be in the same timeline, so to speak. 4. Whoever finishes a list gets to start the next list, if they don't start the list within 24 hours then it's fair game for everyone else. 5. If there isn't an update on the list in three days then it is dead and a new list can be proposed. 6. If the Original Poster of a list doesn't include a time limit of when the list ends, then the list HAS to continue to the present day or if the list fails due to the TL ending, or it isn't updated in three days time. WARNING: If you start something in the ancient era, like Ancient Egypt or Rome then for the sake of everyone else PLEASE set a timelimit, otherwise we will have things like Ramses XXXIII to deal with and keep track of. 7. Formatting: Date of Reign is bolded but left black. Monarch + House is bolded and colored, the color corresponds to the House in question. Footnotes are bolded, information is not. For example (using parentheses instead of brackets): (B)1848 - 1916: (color)Franz Joseph (House of Habsburg-Lothringen)(/color)(/B) Example post: Kings of England 1485 - 1487: Henry VII (House of Tudor)  1487 - 1535: Richard IV (House of York/Simnel)  1535 - 1556: Richard V (House of York/Simnel)   Overthrew Richard III and established the brief 'House of Tudor' until the Yorkish Revolution of 1487 saw Henry's assassination and the restoration of the Yorks under 'Richard IV'.  The figurehead of the Yorkish rebellion, suspected by many to be an imposter named Lambert Simnel (proven in the modern era through DNA testing). Never the less Richard IV was able to build up support in the restored Yorkish government and managed to escape being a puppet and ruled England in his own right, passing the crown to his son, Richard V.  The reign of Richard V witnessed the rise of the 'Cranmerists', a radical branch of Protestantism that was persecuted by Richard V. Despite this a golden age of literature and the arts prospered in his reign. When the king died of the sweating sickness in 1556 he passed the crown to ____. Now as you can see the blank space is for a name for the next poster to write, if you HAVE to include the heir in your post then do _____ <---- that for the name and gender. Oh and advice on female monarchs, a woman doesn't have to mean that a dynasty ends, she could marry a cousin or her husband could be low-ranked enough that her successor keeps the dynastic name, or hell she could establish a line of female monarchs and the name passes with them. Be creative! Let's begin! (What if William Adelin survived the White Ship disaster?) Kings of England 1135 - 1151: William IV (House of Norman)   When William IV took the throne, England was stable enough, though he had to settle his father's debts and faced agitation from his relation Stephen of Blois who viewed himself as William's heir, however William's wife Matilda of Anjou bore him an heir named _____ late in life. It was problems in Normandy, William's French Dukedom that would dominate his reign since the French Kings disliked having a foreign monarch that held land within France (and so close to Paris as well). William died at age 48 of what is believed to be liver cancer.
