In my fort in Dwarf Fortress a fire breathing Forgotten Beast attacked and killed my king. I am still listed as a Mountainhome yet there is no monarch in the nobles screen. Even weirder, the queen consort become the Sheriff even though I already have a Captain of the Guard! She also has the room requirements but the room requirements of a sheriff not a queen. She is also not listed on the nobles screen. Please tell me what is happening and how to get another monarch.

    AFAIK, the crown would get inherited by the next in line... at least that's what happens during worldgen. The queen consort is not in line, just as with real-life monarchies. Did the couple produce any children (can check the queen's relations screen). Does the king have living brothers/sisters? – Liz Sep 10 '18 at 12:59
