Re: Future Scottish regnal numbers - some questions
However, are you not omitting at least two other Williams in calculating the regnal number for the future King William? I'm referring to William III (1685-89) and then William IV in the 19th Cent. That would bring up the number in Scotland for the next William to William IV, surely?
You're correct, I am. William III was William II in Scotland. Some history books refer to him as William III/II. Likewise William IV was William III in Scotland. So the current William will be William IV in Scotland.
We look to Scotland for all our ideas of civilisation.
