To add more context, Rob's fighting with "joka on antanut ... merkitä kuninkaiden luetteloon vanhempanasa ylhäisiksi."
"joka on antanut merkitä vanhempansa ylhäisiksi kuninkaiden luetteloon." would be a more common word order.
"Who has had his parents added as nobles to the list of kings."
Thanks...I wasn't getting quite the right sense of kuninkaiden luetteloon..."to the list of kings"....I was thinking of it in a more English language way.... "to the kings' list"...a list complied "by" the kings (...or delegates), rather than a list "of" (all) the kings... Also this shifting around between kuningas, hallitsija, farao is still a bit confusing, though I suppose that will eventually become clear...
