Fact of the Day: King Francis I Death

King Francis I of France died on his son's 28th birthday, strangely after complaining about the weight of his own crown which he had originally considered a gift from God. His son took the throne as Henry II.

  4. The weight of the crown can be considerable, literally and figuratively.
