.'King Ralph' was a B-,or maybe C-,comedy with John Goodman from about 20 years ago where virtually the entire British royal family died in a freakish accident.In a desperate search for heirs to the throne,the Brits were only able to find a buffoonish,Vegas lounge singer who had any ties to the family.Peter O'Toole's character--who turned out to be the TRUE,though reluctant,heir--tried in vain to keep Goodman's character from embarrassing the crown...at film's end,O'Toole's rightful claim to the crown was discovered,and he was finally persuaded to accept it.
IIRC,there's a biblical verse(maybe a couple)about how the people mourn when an idiot inherits the throne.Anyway,the fictional King Ralph is the only one in our era who even comes close to matching the extremely-brief,disgraceful reign that the Serb had as the supposed 'Queen of Tennis'
