One might also add Wilhelm of Wied's suspended six-month reign in Albania (1914), which would make a total of 27, as he never returned to Albania, which eventually became a republic before Zog made himself monarch.
One might also add Greece (1924), as the Greek monarchy would never have fought the disastrous war in Asia Minor had Greece not been unwisely awarded, as the result of Turkey's defeat, impossible-to defend lands on the coasts of the Turkish heartland. That would make 28 monarchies doomed by WWI.
