Rwanda's last king, Kigeli V, dies at age 80


Very sad. He was apparently a devout Catholic who always did his best to stand up for the best interest of his people, even in exile.


Praying for the repose of his soul & for his family.


Rwanda and the US were two of the last holdouts who had/have kings. I like this guy a lot better. R.I.P.


I think you meant U.K. rather than US. But then again, there’s a few kingdoms left out there including Saudi Arabia being the most prominent. There’s others too including Sweden and Japan (if being an Emperor counts).
