Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

You guys should be careful on how you interpret my answer to the 'natural causes' question. It's not a matter of sources being unclear about what type of natural causes befell the hero of our story. Some sources flat out say that this individual died of something other than natural causes.

Did he have a Royal title?
As in, was he a king? Or are you asking whether he received a title from a king?
And by the way, this is already the 18th question . . .
