It makes sense politically, but it's hard for me to wrap my head around a guy making political moves after leading a rebellion against a king.
The Kingsguard consists of 7 most elite Knights in all of Westeros. They are sworn to protect the King with their lives so him killing the king whom he swore to protect is a major crime against honor and the scared oaths of knighthood. Additionally the knights of the Kingsguard are supposed to be not only highly skilled in combat but of great honor as they are looked upon with much respect.
