I suspect that you simply don't understand what it means in the context of
a community-based open source project.

It doesn't mean that you arbitrarily make decisions quietly and then go
implement them without discussion with the community.

Please share with us YOUR definition!

The graceful thing to do would be to say "I fucked up, sorry, there was no
malice on my end, it was a simple mistake and I take responsibility for
not communicating my ideas to the community before implementing them. 
Let's move on!"

But your use of the word "king" makes me think you don't really quite
understand the role, unless you're thinking of a king working in a
parliamentary government.
