I'd take these over some of the "sane" ones of the 20th century any day!
No mention of Ludwig of Bavaria--patron of the arts and complete looney; not to mention the worst case of tooth decay on record, courtesy of consuming about 30 lbs. of chocolate per day./BTW, if anyone ever thought about marrying a cousin, this list should disabuse them of the notion.
Ludwig also built the best castle.
Ahem, Eric XVI was in fact Erik XIV and even that number was phony. The official list of earlier monarchs at the time was totally fabricated to make Sweden seem to have a longer history than it actually had. Besides, while he indeed had mental problems on and off during the last years of his reign, he was certainly not the lunatic indicated in the article.
According to Jens Lapidus all the current Swedish lunatics are Serbian.
