the scope of the spell

A kingdom has a spell on the king.  He can offer his subject a chance to act against him -- but if they do not act them, they can not try it again at a later date.

Hmm. . . . 

Does this mean that they also can't act against any other monarch?  Say the person who DID act against the king?

I didn't think this spell through.  It doesn't help that I started the story with the idea of it and so it was taken for granted all the while I plotted.
