    Joshua Abraham Norton (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emperor_Norton) is a glaring omission on this list; I mean, who else of these people has inspired a Lucky Luke cartoon?

        I would have been all over Norton, but he was used in another Toptenz list. http://www.toptenz.net/top-10-strangest-monarchs.php

    one of the greatest tragedies i ever witnessed was the Branch Davidian Compound standoff involving the very delusional David Koresh…not sure if he belongs on this list…but he certainly was at fault for many lives lost and had many claims of prophecy.

    “in the 1830’s William tried his hand at power by pretending to be a French king, specifically the late Louis Charles de Bourdin XVII”

    Louis Charles de Bourdin XVII ?? Never heard of him…
    Maybe you meant Louis Charles de Bourbon ?…

    Here you have another: Orélie-Antoine de Tounens, King of Araucania and Patagonia. His family still claim rights over southern Chile and Argentina.
