** In {{Canada|Eh}}, he's actually thought of as TheNeidermeyer because of his association with the absolutely disastrous Allied assault on Dieppe.
** He didn't lead well in battle and the Dieppe raid that he planned was disastrous; he only got by thanks to connections, not competence.

* Cuneglas in ''TheWarlordChronicles''. The most level headed character in the main cast, the nicest by a long way. With the fairly pessimistic nature of the series, the one time he loses his head, he dies in a duel.

* ''LordPeterWimsey'' may qualify. He's just a noble, not royal, but he's responsible, intelligent, and has shell-shock from World War I and general doubts of self-worth to give him the air of melancholy.

* The 2012 BBC version of ''HenryV'' turns Henry into something like this. He starts out rather fresh-faced and dashing, but becomes increasingly worn down by the weight of his decisions. He's depicted as a brave but sometimes unsure leader who is very earnestly trying to do the right thing by his people. Then he dies.

* ''All'' princes in ''CodeGeass'' try their best to ''look'' like this but arguably only Ulysses really means it. Ironic, seeing how he is the heir apparent [[spoiler:and never ascends to the throne]]. The rest of the princes fall somewhere between TheEvilPrince and The AntiHero Prince.

Contrast to his RoyalBrat younger brother, who is content with keeping the status quo that favors the U.S., and is ultimately named the heir by his father.

** Now the subject of ''TheKingsSpeech'', a film about how he unexpectedly succeeded his unpopular (and German sympathist) brother and learned to overcome stuttering in order to preserve the monarchy DuringTheWar.
** It helps that he had beside him his own personal TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask: it was his wife, Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon - known today as the Queen Mum - who was ''his'' anchor and support throughout the abdication crisis and WorldWarII. In fact, the 2002 film ''BertieAndElizabeth'' is entirely centered around this.
