  Order of succession - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In hereditary monarchies the order of succession is followed in order to determine who becomes the new monarch when the old monarch dies or vacates the throne.
Generally, the line of succession is restricted to persons of the blood royal (compare morganatic marriage), that is to those born into or descended from the present royal family or a previous sovereign.
For example, the succession of Duchy of Burgundy in 1361 was resolved in favor of John, son of a younger daughter, on basis of proximity, because he was a closer cousin of the dead duke than Charles, the grandson of the elder daughter.
