The king who never married and died a bachelor without an heir.

Ordinarily, when a man dies at a ripe age of 63 as a bachelor ,it is assumed that he was unmarried because of poverty or some health conditions. However, this very monarch never tasted nor knew the meaning of poverty as he was raised and trained in royal splendor. He attended the best schools in Australia and UK and capped it with a military training at the famous military college in Sandhurst.

See the only creature that live on land and water at the same time

Mudskippers are fish that often spend more time on land than in water. In fact, they may drown if they are never able to leave the water. Like other fish, mudskippers breathe by means of gills, but in addition they absorb oxygen through their skin and the linings of their mouths and throats. They are able to move over land by using their pectoral fins to pull themselves forward or by performing a series of skips or jumps. Mudskippers live in Africa, Asia, Australia, the Philippines, and the islands of Samoa
