Life is full of coincidences, but in some cases these seem almost too incredible to be truly such: here we see some disturbing coincidences, definitely strange but equally true.
The twin of the king
Many kings have used doubles in the past. But the one encountered by Umberto I of Savoy was absolutely incredible. Umberto I came across his double by chance, while dining in a small restaurant, where he noticed that the owner of the restaurant was almost identical to himself. However, the similarities weren't just physical: both were born in the same city on the same day in the same year, both married a woman named Margherita, and both had a son named Vittorio. The owner had opened his restaurant on the same day that Umberto was crowned king. Finally, the restaurant owner was killed (by an accidental shot from cleaning the gun) the same day Umberto was murdered.
The mysterious monk
Frustrated with life and depressed, painter Josef Eichner attempted to commit suicide on multiple occasions once when he was 18 when he was 22 but, according to Ripley, he believes he was arrested each time by the same Capuchin monk when he was thirty. Agner was sentenced to death for his political activities but was again rescued by the monk who intervened on his behalf, I finally ignored and killed himself with a gun when he was 68 the funeral ceremony was conducted by you guessed the same identical capuchin monkey whose name I I never even learned
Jim Springer and Jim Lewis were identical twins who had been separated at birth and adopted by different families. Both families named their baby James, but the similarities don't stop there: they both married women named Linda and also had a son named James Allen, and both worked in the legal industry. Both brothers divorced their wives and remarried women named Betty.
Titan and Titanic
In 1898 Morgan Robertson published a novel called "The Sinking of the Titan". the plot revolves around HMS Titan, a British ocean liner that hit an iceberg and sank across the North Atlantic. As is known, fourteen years later, in 1912, the Titanic sank, under incredibly similar circumstances: both ships were considered unsinkable, but were hit by an iceberg. In both cases, the accident occurred in April, about 400 miles from Newfoundland, and both incidents resulted in the deaths of over 2,000 people due to a lack of life jackets and lifeboats.
In 1975, a man was killed in the Bermuda Islands in a car accident involving a taxi while traveling on a scooter. A year later, the man's brother was killed on the same island, also colliding with a taxi while traveling on a scooter. The taxi was the same as the brother's fatal accident, and was carrying the same passenger.
Joseph Figlock lived in Detroit in the 1930s. One day, while walking down the street, a child fell on him, falling out of the window. Fortunately, the man managed to catch the baby on the fly, and neither was injured. A year later, as Figlock was walking in the same spot, the same child fell out of the window again, being saved by the man again.
