What about Dukes, Counts etc, who also had Roman numerals attached to
their names? For example Louis XII roi de France was previously duc
Louis II d'Orleans, etc., etc.
Even for kings, the numeral could change. For exemple, Henry IV roi de
France was previously Henry III roi de Navarre.
But then that's France, not England. Could it not happen in England that
Mike the nth Duke of Birmingham became Mike the mth King of England?
