* ''MetroidPrime 3'' has this as a borderline RunningGag when you scan busts of Bryyo's ancient rulers found all over the planet... until you reach '[[AfterTheEnd The last emperor of Bryyo]]'.

* 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''.)

* Creator/UrsulaKLeGuin's ''Literature/TheLeftHandOfDarkness'' has Argaven XV of Karhide, latest of a dynasty that has lasted 700 years or so. There were a lot of kings before them, though.
** In the short story ''Winter's King'' all the kings of Karhide who aren't called Argaven are called Emran. King Argaven XVII [[spoiler:commits to taking back the throne]] when she finds out that the corrupt Emran, [[spoiler:Argaven's child who is now older than her because Argaven has been off-planet and been affected by time dilation]], has chosen an heir with neither of the traditional names. [[spoiler:'"The kings of Karhide are called Emran," said Argaven, "and Argaven."']]
