Two classic books that discuss young characters who are unable to rule as king are Hamlet (Shakespeare) and The Odyssey (Homer).  Although both Prince Hamlet and Telemachus have reasons other than just age to prevent them from attaining the throne, both these princes go through difficulties in trying to attain the throne.
