“Officially”, Paul Newman died on September 26, 2008, but the actor continues on as King Juan Carlos of Spain.
From wikipedia: “Paul Leonard Newman (January 26, 1925 – September 26, 2008) was an American actor, film director, entrepreneur, humanitarian, professional racing driver, auto racing team owner, and auto racing enthusiast. He won numerous awards, including an Academy Award for best actor for his performance in the 1986Martin Scorsese film The Color of Money and eight other nominations, three Golden Globe Awards, a BAFTA Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a Cannes Film Festival Award, an Emmy award, and many honorary awards. He also won several national championships as a driver in Sports Car Club of America road racing, and his race teams won several championships in open wheel IndyCar racing. Newman was a co-founder of Newman’s Own, a food company from which Newman donated all post-tax profits and royalties to charity. As of June 2012, these donations exceeded $330 million.”
His Majesty, Don Juan Carlos I (born 5 January 1938) is the reigning King of Spain. On 22 November 1975, two days after General Francisco Franco’s death, Juan Carlos was designated King according to the law of succession promulgated by Franco. In 1969, when Franco named Juan Carlos as the next head of state, Spain had had no monarch for 38 years. The Spanish Constitution of 1978 created and allowed this form of constitutional monarchy. This would mean that Spain progressed from the dictatorship of General Franco to the benevolent reign of this fake actor king! This actor performed in this role extremely well because he is widely approved by Spaniards and Spanish-speaking peoples of Ibero-America. King Juan Carlos successfully oversaw the transition of Spain from dictatorship to parliamentary monarchy.
