A king once died, as kings are apt to do, being as liable to shortness of breath as other mortals.

Tam motamot değil ama yakın bir şekilde şöyle çevrilebilir;

Zamanında bir kral ölmüş, tüm kralların öldüğü gibi, tüm diğer faniler gibi bir nefeslik ömüre sahip olarak.

Ayrıca şu linklere bak;

liable - definition of liable by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
APT - definition of APT by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

Yes, simply, a king dies like all kings do, they die because people eventually die.
