    This appears to be a newspaper headline. It's not a sentence.
    "No Eye on His Throne" possibly means that no one wants to become king/leader. It could imply that his leadsership is safe; that he won't be deposed. Or it could mean that no one is ready to take over when he dies.
    No doubt, the text following the headline will clarify this.
