"A republic, if you can keep it."
Although those historic words are attributed to Benjamin Franklin, they might have applied to many other countries over the course of history.

In the aftermath of World War I, which ended yesterday in 1918, a number of new republics emerged in the wake of the "deaths" of a number of monarchies.

With the abdication of Charles I on November 11, 1918, this country declared itself a republic the very next day.
