Since the suicide of the King of Bavaria, another tragedy has called the attention of the world to the delirium of Princes. Apart from the irresistible interest which men take in the fate of those exalted in rank, there is another reason why the insanity of Kings should become an object of serious study. It is only by availing ourselves of the lives and deaths of regal and princely families that we can trace hereditary disease backwards through many generations so as to arrive at some safe generalization. It is, therefore, proper that there should be in this Journal an account of the recent suicide of the Crown Prince of Austria, viewed in those aspects which are especially interesting to us as students of mental disease.
