* In Creator/JerryPournelle's ''[[Literature/CoDominium 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.

** WinstonChurchill stayed in London during TheBlitz. However, he was very concerned for the safety of King George VI as the king decided to stay in Buckingham Palace, and the best pilots of the Luftwaffe had maps telling them where to bomb it. He was actually very close to invoking his executive powers and having George forcibly taken from Buckingham Palace to the Cabinet War Rooms. Churchill had this turned against him later in the war. In the run up to D-Day he was giving [[UsefulNotes/DwightDEisenhower Eisenhower]] heartburn by regularly stating that he intended to watch the landings from the fleet. Ike mentioned the problem to King George at a luncheon meeting and the King informed Churchill that he thought this was a magnificent idea and would join him with the fleet-the King had served in the Royal Navy before his coronation, after all. Churchill was appalled at the idea of needlessly putting the King in danger and sulkily backed down.

* {{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.
