long live the king! The king is died . wat does it mean?
'Long live the king' is something that is usually shouted to praise or compliment the king, which also means the people are well wishing the king with long life. In the poem ' the tale of melon city', there is a irony that the king himself gets hanged due to his own accusation. Hence the people now say ' the king is dead' instead of 'long live the king'.
