* {{Subverted}} in ''Series/{{Merlin}}'' at the end of series four, when Morgana attacks and overwhelms Camelot. Knowing that KingArthur won't leave his kingdom under any circumstances, Merlin casts a spell on him to remove his free will and reduce him to a "simpleton" that complacently lets himself be carried away. One can't help but think that the writers didn't really think through the implications of this one...

** Danish king Christian X, being stuck in his Copenhagen palace for the entire war and under nazi occupation, was actually the ''brother'' of Norwegian (Danish-born) king Haakon VII, who decided to leave Norway with his government in 1940, to become a lasting symbol of Norwegian resistance. It is said that Haakon was present at his brother´s funeral, and the eulogy stated that "the king remained with his people InItsHourOfNeed". King Haakon took this pretty hard, and never set foot in Denmark again.

* In Jerry Pournelle's ''Prince of Sparta'', upheld in that King Alexander leads the final charge of his palace guard vs. the revolutionary Helots. Subverted in that he was a sick old man with an entirely healthy son, who was at that point safely ensconced in the planet's military command center and running the war.

* In DavidWeber's ''[[Literature/EmpireFromTheAshes Heirs of Empire]]'', the heroes discover there may be a conspiracy to blow up the planet Birhat, their seat of government. The emperor gets his wife to go "vacation" on Earth--though he only gets away with it because she's pregnant--but flatly refuses to go anywhere himself. Even when they locate the planetcracker bomb, determine that it's armed, and start the evacuation, his military officers have to threaten to physically drag him onto a ship before he'll leave.
