Historical highest ordinal on a monarch?

I was wondering, what is the highest ordinal ever used by a monarch? The highest I can recall is Louis XIX, who reigned for only 20 minutes.

Reuss family is a peculiar case, because all male members bore and bear the name Heinrich followed by an ordinal number; the highest ordinal was LXXII (Fürst Heinrich LXXII Reuss zu Ebersdorf, 1797-1852).

I would like to hear the rest of this story. Wasn't Louis XVI the last King of France? I know he had a son, that some people call Louis XVII, but he died as a child. Where did Louis XVIII and XIX come from?

Louis XVIII was the brother of Louis XVI; he succeeded to his nephew Louis XVII claiming the French throne and eventually became King of France in 1814-1815 after the fall of Napoleon.

Louis XIX, also known as the Duke of Angouleme, was the son of King Charles X, the younger brother of Louis XVI and Louis XVIII and successor to the French throne at the death of the latter. When Charles X abdicated in 1830, he was succeeded by his son Louis (XIX), who himself signed about 20 minutes later his own abdication.
Louis XIX was married to his cousin Marie Therese, the daughter of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.

Beyond the Reuss Princes, John XXIII is the higher ordinal...
