* Several of the tiny states that made up [[AllTheLittleGermanies Germany in the 19th century]] had small scale examples of Revolving Door Revolution, most famously [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revolutions_of_1848_in_the_German_states the Revolutions of 1848]], most of which where crushed by the monarchist establishment. In the 19th century, the most powerful of those tiny states, Prussia, reunited all the German speaking states (with the exceptions of Austria, Switzerland, and Lichtenstein) into a new "German Empire" in 1871. In 1914, the German Empire fights in UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne. In 1918, the German Empire is overthrown by the Weimar Republic. Part of Germany is given to the new nation of Poland, cutting off East Prussia from the rest of Germany. In 1933 Hitler is appointed Chancellor of Germany, and proceeds to overthrow the democratic Wiemar Republic and conquer vast tracts of land. Losing UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo, Germany is [[BalkaniseMe again divided]], this time into a Democratic West Germany, and a Communist East Germany. Following the collapse of Communism, the two Germanies reunite in 1990.

* For about 100 years from 1789, to 1870, the French underwent repeated revolutions and counter revolutions as Republicans and Monarchists (divided into three factions, each supporting a different dynasty, and a different style of monarchy) [[GambitPileup battled for control of the government.]] First came the Ancien Regime, then the First Republic (including the Reign of Terror, the Directorate and the Consulate as distinct phases inaugured through violent means), then the First Empire under Napoleon (1804-1814), then the First Bourbon Restoration, (1814-1815) then the 100 days, (1815) then the Second Bourbon Restoration, (1815-1830) then the July Monarchy, (1830-1848) then the Second Republic, (1848-1852) then the Second Empire, (1853-1870) before finally settling on the Third Republic in 1870, which was the first relatively stable French democracy (still prone to short-lived, unstable government), lasting 70 years (longer then any other government in France since the first revolution) until 1940 [[UsefulNotes/SecondWorldWar when it was destroyed by the Nazis and replaced with the Vichy puppet regime.]] The Fourth Republic was established following WWII, then collapsed in 1958 as France lost control of its colonies.[[note]]The colonies had been given special status under the new constitution of the Fourth Republic. The Fourth Republic's Constitution was rendered obsolete because the authors of the constitution did not expect to lose the colonies a mere decade later. ItsALongStory.[[/note]] It was replaced by the Fifth Republic which has remained in power ever since.
** [[SarcasmMode Even better]]: the Fourth Republic had twenty-four successive cabinets in twelve years, with only ''one'' lasting over a year. The shortest-lived one only lasted ''two days''.

since, although there was still a threat of a student-organized revolution in 1968; it fell apart because the Fourth Republic had twenty-four successive cabinets in twelve years, more wary industrial workers refused to side with only ''one'' lasting over a year. The shortest-lived one only lasted ''two days''.them.

* The Byzantine Empire, where dynasties could last as much as two or three, or even ''one'', emperors before being overthrown.
** Its predecessor the Roman Empire has it just the same with some emperors lasting no more than a year or two.

* In ''Franchise/{{Tintin}}'', General Tapioca and General Alcazar take turns deposing each other as dictator of San Theodoros (another BananaRepublic). The government changes hands at least five times over the course of the series.

The government changes hands at least five times over the course of the series. They also fall under FullCircleRevolution since, aside from slightly different uniforms and different names on the signs, their regimes aren't very different from each other.

* In [[FanFic/EquestriaAHistoryRevealed Equestria: A History Revealed]], the Griffon's homeland is said to fit this trope well, much to the [[LemonyNarrator LemonyNarrator's]] chagrin. Their Kingdom was overthrown by a Republic, which was then transformed into an Empire, and was overthrown itself. The leadership keeps changing so much that the LemonyNarrator just gives up and ceases further discussion on the topic.
