comment Life expectancy of monarchs and its relation to stability/peace
@ihtkwot that is why I mentioned average life expectancy. I was more interested in what happened over a period of time for many number of rulers. Someone warring for 50 years and not getting killed can be considered as an exception, IMO.

@ihtkwot as I mentioned, higher life expectancy (or length of rule) means there were relatively lesser number of wars. So this might imply a peaceful period.

@Gangnus Nehru was never a communist, he can be called a socialist at the best. He proposed an economic policy of regulated private enterprises which is a far cry from communist policies. Also, I have mentioned in my answer that A K Gopalan, a communist, was the first opposition leader in India. Also Nehru was instrumental in dismissing the communist government of E M Shankaran Nampoodiripad. So you can safely say that Nehru was opposed to Indian communists atleast.

@mgb But Muslim 'minorities' (along with others) still live in a 'Hindu' India.

comment How would a large kingdom be ruled?
I am not looking for kingdom wise examples - rather the means with which ancient kingdoms were ruled when the means of communications were primitive. It could apply to any large kingdom in that era.
