The Roman Emperor Caligula worshipped his horse and Charles VI of France was convinced that he was made of glass, while Frederick William I of Prussia kidnapped the tallest men he could find to form his private army. We may think of royals as being dignified, but sometimes they are preposterous and even appalling.
