If the city mourns its dead king, Jaime will not have known it. If the city mourns its dead king, Jaime will not have known it. Hi. Does this sentence work fine? If it does, how would you interpret it? Thank you.

No, it is incorrect or very awkward at best. I would rewrite it as, "If the city mourns its dead king, Jaime will not know it." or "If the city mourns its dead king, Jaime would not know it."

It would sound better....If the city mourns the dead king, James would not have know it. Interpretation wise,it would make sense,if it was....If the city mourns the dead king,James would have known it.
