* Tipu Sultan of Mysore was rather fascinated with technology, or rather as much as a warlord in 1700s Southwest India can be. He and his father, Hyder Ali, pioneered Rocket Technology. They used small rockets, in cylinders and as essentially explosive ballistas in battles against their enemies and the English. The English later repurposed Tipu's Rockets and used it in battle as well. Tipu Sultan's court was also associated with the development of a sophisticated automaton known as [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tipu%27s_Tiger Tipu's Tiger]], which the English claimed as spoils of war after defeating him. Creator/JulesVerne cited Tipu Sultan as an inspiration for Prince Dakkar of Bundelkhand, aka Captain Nemo in ''Literature/TwentyThousandLeaguesUnderTheSea'' and ''Literature/TheMysteriousIsland'', with Nemo stated to be his descendant.

* Subverted in the original ''BuckRogers'' comics. It turns out the YellowPeril villain he'd been fighting was actually a nice guy who'd just got caught up in his scientific pursuits & left the running of his kingdom to corrupt advisors.

* In ''Literature/{{Noob}}'', the Empire, the technology side of TheMagicVersusTechnologyWar, started out as an alchemist finding ImportedAlienPhlebotinum, figuring out how it worked and using the knowledge to make new appliances. His descendants have added on to his work and were eventually OfferedTheCrown of an Emperor who had no heir. Keynn, the current-day descendant, is still perpetuating the tradition and is actually a millennia-old man who looks in his thirties thanks to the more rencent discoveries on longevity.
