* Bavaria was particularly fond of having rulers named Ludwig. Not only did they have three kings named Ludwig, when they were a duchy, they had 10 dukes named Ludwig, for a total of 13 rulers named Ludwig. They also had 16 dukes named Henry, five named William, five named Albert, and seven named Otto, which, combined with a later King Otto, had six rulers named Otto. When Bavaria was an Electorate, there were four electors named Maximilian, the last of which became the first king. Combined with the later King Maximillian II, there were five rulers named Maximilian.

* PlayedForLaughs in ''Encarta Mind Maze'', where a uniquely stingy king styles himself "the First" just to stretch out his official title.

* In Tsarist Russia, the most often used name for the Tsars was, unsurprisingly, Ivan. There were six of them. But after the final two Ivans turned out to be ill-fated (Ivan V was a weak-minded co-regent to the more famous UsefulNotes/PeterTheGreat, and Ivan VI was deposed as a baby, grew up in prison, then was killed), the Romanovs ceased to use this name. Soon after they started to alternate Alexanders and Nicholases, but [[RedOctober Revolution]] happened before they managed to accumulate a lot of these.

** Balon Greyjoy, whose dynasty dates back to the Targaryen conquest of the Ironborn (though they claim descent to ancient times), is apparently the ninth of his name.
** While the exact number isn't known, the Starks have had a tradition of naming one son Brandon in every generation... going back 8,000 years to Brandon the Builder. Even if only one generation in five had a Bran in charge, and if the average reign was 20 years, that would make the current Bran Stark ([[spoiler:who is, in theory, the King in the North after Robb died at the Red Wedding]]) the 80th of his name

Added DiffLines:

** In ''Literature/TheWorldOfIceAndFire'', House Durrandon's time as kings of the Stormlands had a tradition of naming the firstborn son of each king after the line's founder, Durran Godsgrief. The maesters producing the in-universe documents that make up ''The World of Ice and Fire'' find this particularly irritating, because the fragmentary nature of the records mean that they know ''a'' King Durran did this or that thing, but they're not sure ''which one'', leading to annotations that they ''think'' the King Durran who did thus-and-so was the tenth of his name - not counting the original Durran Godsgrief, whose thousand-year reign they think might have been a collection of Durrans rolled into one by the process of myth-making. Basically, Stormlands history is very confusing up to Aegon's Conquest and the founding of House Baratheon.

* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' has Aaronev Wilhelm Sturmvoraus, also known as Aaronev VI, the Prince of Sturmhalten. It can only be presumed that if his son, Aaronev Tarvek Sturmvoraus, was allowed to remain in the city and became officially recognized as its ruler, he would be known as Aaronev VII.

* Carl XVI Gustav of Sweden is probably only the 10th king named Carl/Charles/Carolus; when Swedish kings first adopted regnal numbers in the 16th century, they based them on a history that was pretty much entirely fabricated for events before the 11th century, and this history listed a number of Carls who likely never existed. It also lists a few rulers who ''did'' exist, but whose described connection to Sweden is questionable -- for instance, in the unlikely event that an Attila rises to the throne of Sweden, he would be Attila [[UsefulNotes/AttilaTheHun II]] according to that history. (That's a common name in Iceland, spelt ''Atli''.)
