“In 1900 King Umberto of Italy came face to face with a man who looked just like him. The King and his aide went to a small restaurant for dinner. As the owner was taking their order, the king noticed that he and the patron were virtual twins, in both face and build. He remarked on this, and as the two men talked an extraordinary series of parallels emerged which caused both of them to marvel:

  • Both were born on the same day and year.
  • Both were born in the same town.
  • Both were given the same name.
  • They were both married on April 22, 1868.
  • Both wives were named Margarita.
  • Both had a son named Vittorio.
  • They both had been decorated for bravery on two occasions.

Where this gets strange:

The following day the kings double died in a shooting accident and the King was shot and killed by an assassin.

  1. Weird. I wonder if it’s another case of a secret royal child – perhaps a twin?

    • That’s what I’m thinking. I even think they killed the twin just in case but they say it was a normal accident.

      • There are HEAPS of cases of secret royal children sent away – both legitimate and illegitimate. Did you know that Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson had a daughter? They were led to believe she died at birth (which the couple naturally covered up – this is BEFORE Edward became King), and the daughter didn’t find out until AFTER both her biological parents’ death.
