For Dipali, I think

It seems an African Prince was educated in England where he developed a fine regard for democratic principles that complemented his own strong character.

Shortly after he graduated and returned, his father died and he became king. He determined to apply the fine principles and be a good and honest leader of rather than over his people.

His first action was to do away with a symbol of previous times, the ancient historical ebony throne, which was stored in the attic.

Sadly he died that night when the heavy throne fell through the roof onto his bed. It proves that people who live in grass houses shouldn’t stow thrones.

From here.

Edited to add:

While you're at the site, check out this discussion on modern manners. I found the idea intriguing.
