What else does monarchy mean?

  • One that is ruled over or led by a monarch. (in Merlin Dictionary)
  • This type of government is where the head of the goverment, a King or Queen, inherits the title. Absolute Monarchy means that the Queen or King has all power and is free to do whatever he pleases. Constitutonal monarchy means that the King and Parliament share power. They must adhere to the laws of their constituition. In the beginning, many thousands of years ago monarchy meant that only one person could have control over all people and no one would be able to determine who his successor was. Because only one person could decide laws and taxes, it meant that there was no fighting over his children. Since the ruling monarch wasn’t the right person for the job, there were often fights. Many countries have either gone to Democracy, or to Constitutional Monarchy as a result. (in Slang Dictionary, added by Danna Fisher)
  • A moded form of government in which power is passed down through accident rather than by other means. (in Slang Dictionary, added by Jessica Frederick)
  • This form of government is obsolete, but there are still some people in 21st-century who think that someone with an inherited title can somehow be special. (in Slang Dictionary, added by Subarrhation)
  • A dying form of government. The inheritance of a title does not make one more important, superior or better than any other person. Some people believe that one family is special because they inherit titles. This is not a freak. All head of state, and all members of every house of parliament, must be elected. (in Slang Dictionary, added by Darion Russell)
  • There are two types of monarchy: The monarch is the figurehead of a constitutional monarchy. The monarch performs ceremonial duties, including ship christenings and state visits. A parliament is responsible for making laws and the prime minister executes them. While the parliament makes the laws, the prime minister implements them. A “true monarchy” is one where the monarch is considered the head of the state. The equivalent of President, Congress and Supreme Court all in one, the Monarch.
