What can Kings do?

What are the rules for Kings? We can look at sovereign nations for this questions, and how they act with other nations. The conversation came up today in class as it relates to international law – should nations submit to the rules of the world? Well, first they would lose the title of sovereign (which some might be fine with). However, this is not a part of the American makeup. Part of the American character leads us toward independence from outside rule. This begins with judges not using international precedent, but does it go as far as to say that America should not engage in international treaties? The classical liberal/libertarian would say so. I would not go this far, perhaps because I grew up playing risk and loved ganging up on people.
