Egyptian Revolt at 60

Three score years and three days ago today, the infant king, HM King Fuad II of Egypt and Sudan was deposed.

His late father, Farouk I, is reported to have said:
The whole world is in revolt. Soon there will be only five Kings left — the King of England, the King of Spades, the King of Clubs, the King of Hearts, and the King of Diamonds.
Apart from the fact that there constitutionally is no such thing as King of England, there hasn't been a King of England since the abdication of Farouk I in 1952, a Queen however, but several have remained.

The “Arab Spring” does not bring much hope.
