Which founder of a religion abdicted the royal throne?

Siddartha Gautama
Zoroaster
Laozi
Muhhamad
Ac­cord­ing to tra­di­tion, Sid­dartha Gautama was a son of King Sud­dho­dana, who was an elected leader of the Shakya people. The Śākyas formed an in­de­pen­dent re­pub­li­can state, with the capital of Kapilavas­tu in pre­sen­t-­day Nepal. As Gautama Buddha founded a new religion and abdicted the throne, so the lineage con­tin­ued with his brother Rahula.
