: King Constantine II of the Hellenes, like King
: Michael of Romania, should be entitled to
: the privilege of continuing use of his
: exalted title -- for reasons that he was, at
: one point, an enthroned sovereign.
As well as king Simeon of Bulgaria, although I am not sure he had to renounce his kingship when he ran (and won) the election for Bulgaria PM some years ago.
Peter II had the right to use the title of king of Yu after the war, because he had been enthroned.
Naturally his son Alexander should be addressed as Prince.
therefore one should address Constantine as king, but, after his departure, his son Pavlos should be addressed as Prince.
All those kings (Simeon ??) did not renounce, so IMHO they are entitle to be addressed as kings for life.
Take the dutch case: When Queen Juliana abdicated she choosed to be styled as Princess.
She was no longer queen but because she choosed to, she was not overthroned.
: It's a different situation from that of
: other pretenders (e.g. Russia, Serbia, the
: numerous German states).
