I've outlived another one.

This time our last ruling monarch to die, George VI, putting our current Queen on the throne.
Happily despite having the power to send me to the tower for whatever punishment they desire, we live in an age of a benevolent monarch, though I must say the hereditary monarch of North Korea appears to have more power over his subjects.
I notice I'll go past another pommie king in a month or so, Henry II, he one was way too early for us in Australia but I hope I can keep on beating them. He was followed by a couple of famous but rather dubious rulers.
For those who check into this, I did say ruling monarch, there was of course a retired one that's going to take a bit more living to beat.
