In this five-part series, we journey to Japan, Bhutan, Cambodia, Nepal and Brunei to understand the relationship between the people and their monarchs. To many, their monarchy is an anachronism: an institution that hampers progress. To others it is the heart and soul of their nation, part of their shared history and a guard against the dangers of modernity. As a new era approaches, what happens to each of them will affect not only the East but the whole world.
