King Jacques I (1903-1946) was king of Canada from 1945 until his death a few months later. He was the great-grandson of King Charles X et I, and became King of Canada after his first cousin once removed, King Pierre I, died without a male heir. Pierre I had been the last king of both Canada, Minnesota and Arkansas. Upon his death, Arkansas split off, having rejected salic law. King Jacques I's reign was very short, as just 5 months after his ascension, he died of a stroke, and was succeeded by his son, Pierre, current King of Canada.
