We all know that the Burger King is a healthy, robust man, but for argument’s sake, were something to happen to the King, who is next in line to the throne?

RESPONSE FROM BK:
Thank you for your letter dated 2/25/2014 with respect to the King and his heirs. Eric is currently engrossed in basketball doing his best to #WatchLikeAKing and save his busted bracket. I hope I can be of some assistance.
I regret that I am unable to comment on the line of succession for the King. Although you might expect the matter to be a simple one, the king’s dynasty follows agnatic gavelkind succession law, and the intersection of pre-medieval inheritance practices with modern IP law is somewhat convoluted.
As a matter of interest, you remark that “we all know” that the King is “a healthy, robust man” — is there a specific reason for making that particular observation? Hypothetically speaking, it may have been a little while since we’ve seen him, and we might be interested in his whereabouts and well-being.
Yours truly — and entirely unofficially,
Burger King Corporation
