King Tomás XII of Potenzia has died at the age of 88.


      The Royal Palace of León confirmed the sad news with the following statement.

      "It is with deep sorrow that Queen Marcia of San Lancaster announces the death of her beloved husband, King Tómas XII of Potenzia.

      His Majesty passed away peacefully this morning at the Royal Residency.

      The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss."

      Sir Alan Bennett praised King Tomás XII saying that he "inspired the lives of countless young people and earned the affection of generations here in the Kingdom, across the Commonwealth, and around the world.”

      According to Royal Law, Queen Marcia will assume the role of acting Monarch until Crown Prince Alan de León weds a suitable spouse.


      “King Tomás XII was a popular figure around the world. He even reached the beautiful and fairly distant Sjevre. The death of a friend I have had the pleasure of meeting several times in my life. Each time it was a pleasant meeting. I will show my mourning to the family for their family and house head, for their King.” - King Josev-Aszrymop III of Sjevre

      "I know we only met for a brief moment in León but from what I saw from him, he was a good man and a greater person.

May he rest in peace and may the Potenzian people remember him in great image." - King Maximilian of Oruzia
