Interpretation of Viva La Vida by Coldplay

This song lyric tells us about a king on that era. The king has a power to make everything he wants happened and everyone have a faith in him. The king love gambling and he shows his power to his rival. His people cheers because he always win. He thinks that he is the representation of God.
Looking at the lyrics,
Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
The song could relate to King Louis XVI. He was once a king but then he was evicted to Tuileries and then Austria and then sentenced to death on Guillotine because is punished as a traitor.
