Neither the king nor his sons will be killed. Nec rex nec filii sui necabuntur. I'm not sure if sui, being reflexive, is correct because that the sons are also part of the subject. Eius seems even more wrong.
Did you, who were present, see him? Tune, qui aderat(adiit), eum vidisti? I originally had Vidistine eum, qui aderas? but I think that is even more wrong.
They were thought to be very wise. Putati sunt esse sapientissimi. Should 'very wise' be nominative or accusative? I've got nom, because 'they were thought..' they are the subject, and they are very wise.
