Re: Line of succession
Is it a benefit? I agree that a very short line of succession, like Sweden had for the last half of the 20th century can be very problematic, since the dynasty risks extinction, but the experience of countless monarchies through the ages suggest that a surplus of royals can lead to complications (scandals, accusations of wasting public funds, etc.). I don't think Sweden is at that point yet, but it could become an issue in another generation or so.
