NOTE.-In some tables of the above description, in the cases of various of the earlier reigns, the commencement of the reign is not stated to take effect on the demise of the previous monarch, but from subsequent periods. In a legal point of view, however, that must be incorrect, as it is a maxim of English law that the King never dies. (Rex nunquam moritur. In Anglia, non est interregnum.)
