King Gustavus The Great of Sweden. A true "warrior king", whom after creating the Swedish Empire, fell in battle at Luzon in 1632. At his death, Sweden was the third largest nation in europe, after Russia and Spain.
The direct use of force is such a poor solution to any problem, it is generally employed only by small children and large nations.

I doubt that Sweden was larger than Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. In 1634 PLC had about 1 mio square km - therefore more than Russia. In 1632 it was a little bit less, still I think more than Sweden.

At its height Sweden covered some 1 mn square km as well, although since most of it was forest it doesn't really matter.

Not a drum was heard, not a funeral note
As his corse to the rampart we hurried;
Not a soldier discharged his farewell shot
O'er the grave where our hero we buried.
 
We buried him darkly at dead of night,
The sods with our bayonets turning,
By the struggling moonbeam's misty light
And the lanthorn dimly burning.
Sir John Moore at Corunna.
 
Roving tho' his death fell, he went with heart at ease,
And dreaming all the time of Plymouth Hoe.
"Take my drum to England, hang it by the shore,
Strike it when your powder's running low;
If the Dons sight Devon, I'll quit the port o' Heaven,
And drum them up the Channel as we drummed them long ago."
Sir Francis Drake, Nombre Dios Bay.

And You think that most of PLC were big citiesLOL? But everything counts when we take size of the country and forests are very precious now. I wonder if someone has any source cause there were few countries of similar size in that time: Sweden, Russia, PLC and Spain. I wonder which one was the biggest but situation was changing really quickly those times in Europe.

James II of Scotland was killed at the siege of Roxburgh Castle when one of his own cannons suddenly exploded (which was a far more glorious death than the one meted out to his predecessor James I, who was assassinated in a sewer).
James III was killed at the Battle of Sauchieburn in 1488 by his own rebellious nobility.
James IV was killed at the Battle of Flodden Field in 1513 by the English.

Hello to you all
 
I don't know if anyone has ever mentioned this battle but the battle of Al-Qasr Al-Kabir (Alcaser Quibir) where three kings died (Sebastian I of Portugal, Abdul-Malik of Morocco and Abdullah the former King of Morocco). Now that is something:

Nǔ'ěrhāqí I, king of the Jurchens, and khan of the Jin. The founding father of the Manchu state, whom laid the foundation and groundwork for the conquest of china by the Qing dynasty. After a flawless military career, he was finally defeated at the battle of ningyuan, where he was wounded by a portuguese cannon. Unable to recover he died 2 days later at the age of 68.
