deborahknowles When Elizabeth I was thought to be dying of smallpox, she named the gorgeous Robert Dudley Lord Protector. If a king was dying in the 1300s, and had a son too young to be king, would he have named a successor or chosen a Protector until his son was of age. (What was the age at which he would have been crowned?)If anyone can help - thanks. I know I'm a pain! Aiken Drum He'd have named a governor/regent to rule in the child's name until he reached his seniority, normally at 21 years of age. Maria Exactly. And all the child had to do was pray to live that long... Merlin Henry IV., king of the germans and later emperor, born 1050 A.D., was called king from the age of 3. His father Henry III. died when he was 6 and there were different governors afterwards. But he took over already at the age of 15. Malc_Chr King John I, of France was even younger, he hadn't been born when his father Louis X died in 1316. People had to wait till Clémence give birth, to find out if it was a heir or not. He only lived 7 days. deborahknowles that's really sad but thanks for the info!
