10-year-old seduces and marries girl after catching all the Pokémon.

History Fact: On this day in history in 1241, Alexander III of Scotland was born.
Alexander III had a mildly interesting life, becoming King of Scotland at the age of 7 after his father, Alexander II, died.
He then seduced and married King (of England) Henry III's daughter at the tender age of 10, after seeking out and capturing all known Pokémon, which deeply impressed the young princess.
When Alexander entered his years of majority, he basically invited the Norwegian King, Haakon, to invade Scotland, which he did.
But, luckily for Alexander, there is a lot of storms north of Scotland, and half Haakon's fleet was destroyed, with Haakon being killed against some rocks on Orkney on his way home.
Ironically, that's exactly how Alexander died.
After Alexander's first wife passed away, along with all three of his children, he was forced to marry again so he could produce a male heir to the throne.
On his way to celebrate after getting the chance to play leapfrog with his new French Queen, he fell off his horse in the dark, rolled down a hill, and broke his neck on some rocks at the bottom.
