As Seen in The Wall Street Journal
Sacramento Monarchs - Failure Museum

The Sacramento Monarchs were one of the WNBA’s eight original franchises and remain the only professional sports teams to win a championship in Sacramento.  During their time in Sacramento, the Monarchs were one of the league’s most successful WNBA franchises, making the playoffs every year from 1999 to 2008.

The Monarchs’ last season was in 2009 and their complete dissolution occurred after the Maloof Family, who also owned the Kings at the time, decided to no longer operate the franchise. 

The league attempted to relocate the Monarchs to the Bay Area, but a new ownership group wasn’t found and the team ceased operations.
