Hello Gm :gflower:

A lot of these clues have to do with gardens - could the answer be - Gardener.

Good afternoon Carolcass :gflower: Yes, :D very well done you have guessed the alias correctly in one guess :D :clap: :clap: :clap:

Alias

Found at the cemetery orchards, cloister garths and vineyards of Monasteries - Gardeners

Possibly King Nebuchadnezzar II but not the Rivers of Babylon - The Hanging Gardens of Babylon were possibly built by King Nebuchadnezzar II

This Lancelot was very Capable - Lancelot “Capability” Brown (1716 – 1783) is remembered as "England's greatest Gardener".

Creating a little chaos at King Louis XIV's palace at Versailles - Gardening is the theme of the 2014 film “A Little Chaos” oft two talented landscape artists who become romantically entangled whilst building a garden in King Louis XIV's palace at Versailles.

Implies in 2015 sitting on a big Sofa – Watching the above mentioned film on DVD.

Removed from being involved in – Being involved in” implies the act of gardening for this clue as a Gardener does gardening.

= Gardener
