    Actually you are wrong, I think.
First, Murad was killed not AFTER but Before battle, from Serbian spy. Not on the battlefield, but in his tent. His son take control of the army and win the battle. This was in battle agains the united armies of Srbs and Bulgars on Kosovo pole.

That is not true bggeneral ; probably ; Murat I was wandering around in the battlefield  and he was backstabbed by the wounded Serbian " Obilic " . And that was an assasination . 
Right, Battle of Srpsindigi was fought between Turks and United Slavs , however Bosnian Knight Tvrtko was also killed during battle like other feudal Lords of the region . ( many are unknown , it was a complete catastrophy for the orthodox dominancy )

Let us see Hungarian history:
 
- duke Koppny, a pagan rebel leader killed in action (997). Later his body was cut into four pieces and was sent to the four corners of the country.
- king Samuel, he was killed when he tried to escape from the battle of Mnfő. [fought against the deposed king Peter and the Holy Roman Empire](1044)
- king Salamon (1087), He was deposed and went to the Pechenegs. He took part one of their raids against the Byzantines and died in battle.
- prince Coloman, the duke of Slavonia was mortally wounded in the battle of Mohi against the Tartars.
- king Uladislaus I died in the battle of Varna. His head was put in a stake to demoralise his troops.
- king Louis II drowned the the Csele stream when tried to escape from the battle of Mohi.

Halsten Stenkilsson was the new king's name, brother to one of the Eriks. The other Erik was Erik the Heathen and I was wrong when talking about pretenders; they were both kings, the heathen elected by the Swedes because he promised to upheld the old customs, and Stenkilsson elected by the Christian Geats (it was a joint kingdom). Whether their antagonism that led to them battling each other was personal or a step in the fight between the old beliefs and Christianity is not really known. Halsten was only king for a few years though, since the Swedes drove him away, not wanting a Geat as king. Instead they elected a Scandinavian living in Russia, Anund Grdske ("the Grdarike-ish"), a descendant of Rurik/Hrrik. He was also kicked out pretty soon in any case...

Mid 11th. The Eriks killed each other in 1066 or 1067, while Halsten was king 1067-1070 and Anund 1070-1075, approximately. The last heathen king was Sven the Sacrificer around 1084-1088 (who BTW was killed by Inge, brother of Erik and Halsten Stenkilsson).

Epaminondas, the Thebean General who ended the Spartan hegemony at Leuctra (371BC). He died during the Theban victory at Mantinea in 362BC while in pursuit of his fleeing opponents. It was a great loss as Epaminondas was an exceptional strategist and tactician. RIP. LOL

The image http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/8a/Epam2.jpg cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Hasdrubal Barca, younger brother of Hannibal Barca. He died - while providing reinforcements and siege equipment to Hannibal in Italy - at the Battle of Metaurus against the Roman Generals Salinator and Nero. With no hope of victory he gloriously ran into the fray and was killed. His head was found after the battle and then thrown into Hannibal's camp. Hasdrubal was not an equal to his older sibling Hannibal in any way, however he did have some success against the Scipio's in Spain. RIP. LOL

The Germanic king sounds like the Holy Roman Germanic Emperor Frederick I Barbarossa of the Hohenstaufen dynasty, who drowned in a river in Anatolia during the Third Crusade.
But he was taking a swim, no battle involved.

And as far as I know neither Alparslan (the great Seljuk ruler who died in 1072, and not the later mad teenage ruler of Aleppo) nor Melikshah had time and opportunity to fight the crusaders (they fought the Byzantines). Kilidjarslan did though.
One must not insult the future.

Ah Yes, I recall that 1. Gaius Flaminius - One of two current Roman Consuls in the year 217BC - was killed during the Battle of Lake Trasimene. Hannibal's forces lay in ambush in the surrounding hills/woods and struck in the mist. Flaminius was killed in the action along with a great majority of his army.

Also, Lucius Aemilius Paullus was killed at the Battle of Cannae in 216BC. He was the Roman consul at that time along with his partner in battle Gaius Terentius Varro. At Cannae, Hannibal had managed to completely envelop his much larger foe. Varro opted for escape while Aemilius Paullus fought gloriously to the death in the fray. After the killing fest was done, Hannibal ordered a search for Paullus' body and honoured him with a special funerary ceremony.

Cool
