And, now. . .a rare Saturday posting.

1848 -- A year of great upheaval around the world. Across Europe it was either the end of or the beginning of the end of at least three monarchies. There was unrest among the peasantry, discontent among the middle class (what little there was of it), and outright hostility against the nobility.

Among the events that happened in this year:
-- Uprisings in Sicily and Venezuela; revolutions in Rome and Hungary; demonstrations in Sweden; rebellions in Ireland and Sri Lanka
-- Constitutions (or precursor documents) ratified in Sardinia/Italy and Switzerland
-- The Emperor of Austria, King of Bavaria, and King of France all abdicated

Which of the monarchs listed above abdicated on February 24, 1848?
