Problem

Displaced royalty

Other Names:
Royal pretenders
Exiled monarchs
Claim:
A number of former monarchies are the object of claims to the throne by their displaced royal families. This is divisive to the countries involved, and may also be subversive, with monarchical elements plotting a revolution to restore the former dynasty and its latest heir or claimant.
Counter Claim:
The universal popularity of monarchy is what is required to salvage the spirit of such troubled nations as the USSR, Yugoslavia, Albania and Italy, as well as Spain, France and Hungary, for example. Royal families for these and other nations such as Iran and Ethiopia await the call to return to serve their fatherlands. Special cases of royal displacement include the exiled Dalai Lama of Tibet, persecuted prelates of the Roman Catholic Church such as the late Cardinal Mindzenty, and the Scion of the House of David.
