Kigeli V, the last king of Rwanda, died yesterday in Oakton, Virginia.

The king reigned from 1959-1961 before departing for exile.

He was born in 1936 and never married.

That is not yet clear; if indeed it can be, given the lack of a precise genealogy detailing the descendants of the Rwandan royal family.

Another obituary:
The last King of Rwanda, Kigeli V, dies at the age of 80 – Royal Central

Although this article is incorrect in stating Prince Emmanuel Bushayija is King Kigeli's grandson, it looks there is a disputed succession. I don't think this is particularly a surprising development considering the dispute over where the King would be buried.

New Queen of Rwanda

Apparently the late King had a daughter.

The King never had any children.

That woman is not his daughter.

It seems as though this might be part of a campaign on the part of the Rwandan government to delegitimise the actions of the King in exile, especially his naming of his nephew as his heir.

H.M King Kigeli picked his successor. It was his prerogative as King and therefore, the only legitimate person is now the de facto uncrowned King of Rwanda.
