Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck is the fifth Dragon King of Bhutan and head of the Wangchuck dynasty. He became king on 14 December 2006, and was officially crowned on 6 November 2008. He is currently the world’s youngest monarch and head of state.
The young king ascended to the throne after his father abdicated the throne in favor of his Western educated son. Jigme Khesar is an Oxford grad and began his unusual reign overseeing the democratization of his country, by presiding over the last sessions of the present parliament where electoral laws, land reform and other important issues were deliberated. He stated that the responsibility of this generation for Bhutanese was to ensure the success of democracy.
Yeah yeah, blah blah blah. From the pictures I’ve seen, I think he’s hot. AND he’s a frickin’ HEAD OF STATE! DOUBLE HOT. And a man who is dedicated to democratization of the country he is a monarch for? Yow!
That democracy thing puts me over the edge for him! (Excuse me while I go take a cold shower or some sedatives or something.)
