10 Crazy Royals - Insane Royalty | TopTenz.net. Unlike Afonso, King Charles IX of France actually took out his savagery on others in his court, including once on his sisters. Due to a disfiguration, he was dubbed the Snotty King and was given to fits of rage and sadism. In 1561 at the age of 10, Charles took the throne after all the other eligible heirs died. Like Carlos, it was his overbearing mother that ruled long after her regency ended when he came of age.
The nine year old Charles IX of France, shortly after his succession to the throne, following the premature death of his brother Francis II. He had cried during his coronation and his mother Catherine De Medici kept him close to her and slept in his bedchamber. A year later, in 1560, he is proposed as a suitor for Elizabeth I, she is 27. Clearly an absurd suggestion for Elizabeth who was considered "mature" for a first marriage and was under pressure to produce an heir.

Henry II (31 March 1519 – 10 July 1559) was King of France from 31 March 1547 until his death in 1559. Henry II's reign was dominated by war against the House of Hapsburg, chiefly in Italy. He suffered an untimely death in a jousting tournament held to celebrate the Peace of Cateau-Cambrésis at the conclusion of the conflict. During Henry's reign, Protestantism became an important religion in France, in spite of his efforts to suppress it. His death led to a weakening of French royal authority.
