Abolition of monarchy

The abolition of monarchy involves the ending of monarchical elements in government hereditary. Abolition has been carried out in various ways, including via abdication leading to the extinction of the monarchy, legislative reform, coup d'état, decolonisation. Abolition became more frequent in the 20th century, with the number of monarchies in Europe falling from 22 to 12 between 1914 and 2015, the number of republics rising from 4 to 34. Decolonisation and independence have resulted in an abolition of monarchies in a number of former colonies such as those created by the United Kingdom. Motivations for abolition include egalitarianism and anti-class views, opposition to undemocratic and hereditary institutions, perception of monarchy as anachronistic or outdated, opposition to a particular monarch or dynasty. In many colonies and former colonies, abolishing the influence of the monarchy of a colonising state is considered part of decolonisation. In many Commonwealth realms, the monarchy may be viewed as a foreign institution running counter to the national identity or national sovereignty.

In the 21st century, some countries that are monarchies have significant republican movements, such as Spain and Australia. Since the beginning of the 20th century, restorations of monarchies have been comparatively rare. Examples are the monarchy of Spain, which since 1947 had been a regency with a vacant throne but was restored in 1975. Under the leadership of Oliver Cromwell, in 1649, King Charles I was tried for high treason and executed; this marked the conclusion of the English Civil War which resulted in the Parliament of England overthrowing the English monarchy, initiating a period of an English republic. After eleven years, in 1660, a limited monarchy was restored but moderated by an independent Parliament. Organized anti-monarchism in what is now the United States developed out of a gradual revolution that began in 1765, as colonists resisted a stamp tax through boycott and condemnation of tax officials. While they were subject to the authority of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, the North American citizens enjoyed a level of autonomy that clashed with the Parliament that did not provide seats for parliamentary representatives.

With the Declaration of Independence in 1776, anti-monarchical propaganda resulted in violent protests that systematically removed symbols of monarchy. For instance, an equestrian statue of George III in New York City was toppled. Parliamentary loyalists were affected by partisan attacks, with tens of thousands leaving for Canada. Property that remained was confiscated by each of thirteen newly created States through newly passed laws. Artifacts from the colonial period depicting the British monarchy are found in the United States. However, not all sentiment equated to anti-monarchism. A normality of a monarchy at the head of a polity remained, that some Americans saw a presidency in monarchical terms, a Caesar of the republic, was an early debate in the new republic. One of the most significant abolitions of monarchy in history – along with the Dutch Republic of 1581–1795 – involved the French monarchy in 1792 in the French Revolution; the French monarchy was restored several times with differing levels of authority.

Napoleon a hero of the Republican revolution, crowned himself emperor in 1804, only to be replaced by the Bourbon Restoration in 1815, which in turn was replaced by the more liberal July Monarchy in 1830. The 1848 Revolution was a clearer anti-monarchic uprising that replaced the succession of royal leaders with the short-lived Second French Republic. Louis Napoleon Bonaparte established the Second French Empire, retaining republican aspects while placing himself in the center of the state until the losses in the Franco-Prussian War led to his fall, resulting in the French Third Republic and the definitive end of the monarchy in France. Madagascar The monarchy of Madagascar, known as the Merina Kingdom, came to an end in 1897 when France made it a colony and overthrew Queen Ranavalona III. Mexico The First Mexican Empire existed from the September 1821 Declaration of Independence until the emperor's abdication in March 1823; the Provisional Government took power and the First Mexican Republic was proclaimed in 1824.

Due to French intervention under Napoleon III, the Second Mexican Empire lasted from 1864 to 1867, when it collapsed and its Emperor, Maximilian I of Mexico, was executed. Brazil In Brazil, the monarchy was abolished in 1889, when Emperor Pedro II was overthrown by a republican military coup. Burma The monarchy of Burma was abolished in 1885 when the last king, Thibaw Min, lost his throne and the country was annexed by Britain. South Asia In 1858 the Mughal Empire came to an end after losing a war against Britain, its Emperor, Bahadur Shah II, lost his throne. Italy Between 1859 and 1861, four monarchies in Southern Europe ceased to exist when they all became part of the new Kingdom of Italy. Spain In Spain monarchy was abolished from 1873 to 1874 by the First Spanish Republic, but restored until 1931. Hawaii In 1893 foreign business leaders overthrew Queen Liliʻuokalani of the Kingdom of Hawaii, they established a republic, annexed by the United States in 1898. Tahiti The monarchy of Tahiti came to an end in 1880 when France made it a colony and overthrew K

Ben Davis (apple)

The Ben Davis is an apple cultivar. During the 19th century and early 20th century it was a popular commercial apple due to the ruggedness and keeping qualities of the fruit, but as packing and transportation techniques improved the cultivar fell out of favor, replaced by others considered to have better flavor, it was known to fruit growers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries as a "mortgage lifter" because it was a reliable producer and the fruit would not drop from the trees until late in the season. By mid-twentieth century it was used as a process apple rather than a table apple, orchards were replacing it with more popular varieties; the cultivar is now rare to nonexistent in the commercial trade. It is still grown in parts of Maine; the Ben Davis was crossbred with the'McIntosh' to create the Cortland, a successful pie apple. Similar cultivars known as Gano or Black Ben Davis appeared in parts of the American South in the 1880s, they are said to be either seedlings of, or identical to the original Ben Davis, but the exact relationship is unknown.
