: Does any European monarchy have a procedure
: formalized in its constitution or basic laws
: which allows for the removal of a monarch
: who is deemed guilty of misconduct? I know
: that most follow the principle that
: "the king is not responsible," but
: what if the monarch has acted
Allthough there's nothing about it in the Constitution, the Norwegian Parliament made precendece in 1905 when they unanimously voted that King Oscar II had seized to function as King of Norway because he did not fullfill his constiutional role of accepting the resignation of the government of the day and appointing a new government.
