Monarchs Whose Fate Was Determined by a Sibling

This isn't news, per se, but something interesting to think about. I know about George VI because of his brother's famous (infamous??) abdication and Richard the Lion Heart and Henry VIII because he famously married his deceased brother's wife, but I've never thought of the others. The list is longer than I expected.
