What is the greatest age at which anyone has become a monarch?
While I am aware of nobles succeeding as nonagenarians,among
sovereigns the oldest that comes to mind is Abdullah of Saudi
Arabia (born c. 1924 and became King in 2005),with the Crown
Prince of Kuwait(born 1937) a possible future contender.

The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.

I suppose I should note that if the Malaysian rotations are
considered,the next succession in 2021 would on the established order of
states fall to the Sultan of Pahang,the incumbent was born in 1930.

As you know, if Electress Sophia had lived another eight weeks, she would have become Queen at 83. If.

The most recent past Malaysian king took over at 84 for a second term
ending when he was 89.
