Kings without Thrones

What do monarchs do next?

We do not yet know what King Gyanendra is going to do, but the article speculates and discusses what other deposed monarchs have done over the past century. Very informative article.

I gather King Gyanendra was not a very good king (I haven't read much on him so I can't really say), but I can only think of two Americans who respond to bad presidents by saying, "We shouldn't have any more presidents!" and I am one of them. I am living in dread of this November.
