This category is for child rulers who died before reaching the age of majority in their culture. Before modern times this generally seems to have been around age 15 or 16, so those listed in this article died before reaching their 16th birthday. "Ruler" in this category refers to someone holding an office of sovereign and temporal authority. See Category:Child rulers for more definition and discussion.
