An Astrologer, King & Queen A court astrologer predicted that the Queen would die the next day. When she really died the next day, the King wanted to get the astrologer killed as he thought that he had purposefully conspired to kill the Queen to fulfill his prophecy. The guards brought the astrologer to the court and the King asked him: "You seem to predict very well. Tell me, when are you going to die?" The astrologer, with dead seriousness on his tone, said-"I shall die three days before you, o great king of kings!".
