    Born in Cairo, Egypt
    King of Egypt (1936-52)
    Overthrown in a coup led by Gamal Abdel Nasser
    Died in exile in Rome
    His lavish lifestyle, including European shopping sprees, gambling and womanizing, alienated his subjects.
    He stole numerous objects, including Winston Churchill's pocket watch and a cermonial sword from the Shah of Iran.
    He ballooned to nearly 300 pounds and one acquaintance described him as 'a stomach with a head.'
    He reportedly knew every call girl in Rome by first name.
    After his coronation, he made a public radio address, becoming the first Egyptian monarch to speak to his people directly.
    David Suchet modeled his mustache as Hercule Poirot on Farouk's.
    He famously observed, 'There will soon be only five kings left: the Kings of England, Diamonds, Hearts, Spades and Clubs.'
