comment English monarchs on the battlefield
@FelixGoldberg I am actually more interested in the situation in England/Britain due to 1) Some knowledge of the period gained from novels by Ken Follett (though he does change details to make a plot) & watching eps. of Cadfael 2) That was the area of the world that most affects my ancestors. They were primarily English, with Scottish, Welsh, Irish and a smattering of Germanic peoples mixed in (yes, true 'muts'). Either way, thanks for that extra nugget of knowledge. :)

So according to Wikipedia, it is 1485 for last death of monarch in battle & 1743 for 'last combatant'?

The problem lies in the first question mentioning 'common'. If you ignore that (quite subjective) word, the 1st and 3rd questions essentially become a single question. As such, I think your answer covers all 3 questions. Thank you.
