Who was on the Throne

I thought it would be interesting to show who was on the throne at the time a person lived in this tree. If you look at a persons personal page, I have added a box to show who was on the throne at the time. This will only show if a birth, death or christening date is known for the person. If only one of these dates is known, only the person on the throne for that date will be shown.

The following is a list of Kings and Queens who reigned during the time of this tree:
