Anarcho-Monarchism, clipped to AnMon, is a theoretical form of government which combines Anarchy with Monarchy.
Anarcho-Monarchism usually leans right-wing in economic and cultural matters (partially because most left-wing anarchists can't stand the concept of Monarchy), but doesn't fundamentally have to be.
There have been quite a few conceptions on how an Anarcho-Monarchist society of which include:
- Anarchy and monarchy as naturally allied - This is one of the simplest notions of Anarcho-Monarchy: the belief that the government should primarily control as few people as possible making anarchy the ideal form of governance. The most preferable system to the rule of none is the rule of one of monarchy. This form of Anarcho-monarchism has been most famously advocated by the English writer J.R.R. Tolkien and the German-American Austrian-school economist Hans-Hermann Hoppe.
My political opinions lean more and more to Anarchy (philosophically understood, meaning abolition of control not whiskered men with bombs) – or to ‘unconstitutional’ Monarchy.John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien (29 November 1943)
- Monarchy maintained through anarchy - Effectively a system in which you have a ceremonial monarchy presiding over an anarchy. This form of anarcho-monarchism is very often associated with Emperor Norton who was
the rightful leader of the United States of Americaa self-declared royal in the state of California who was widely respected by the people of San Francisco while not having any legal status as the emperor.
- Monarchic government without a state - This form of anarcho-monarchy was created by the self-described reactionary libertarian writer, Insula Qui, in her book: Anarcho-Monarchism: A Collection of Essays from Insula Qui. This approach separates the concepts of government and of the state with the former being a body which sets and enforces rules while the latter being a body which has a territorial monopoly on violence. In this political order, the state is eliminated, thus creating an anarchy, while governments are generally taken to be monarchical, creating a synthesis of anarchy and monarchy. Typically the monarchy is chosen through an Anarcho-Capitalist system, with the goal that the competitive and voluntary nature of Capitalism would lead to a contractual, meritocratic / aristocratic monarch.

- Anarchy maintained through monarchy - This form of Anarcho-Monarchy is basically a normal anarchist society except there exists a monarch (or monarchs) who maintain the power to use force to stop the state from forming again.
- Every man a king, every woman a queen - Under this conception the role of absolute leadership is boiled down to the lowest level possible (the individual) creating a society in which quite literally every man is a king and hierarchy is effectively eliminated.

How to Draw
Anarcho-Monarchism's design is based of a flag designed by the reddit user tutwater under the post simply called "Flag of Anarcho-Monarchism".
- Draw a ball,
- Draw a diagonal bicolor of black (bottom) and purple (top),
- In the middle of the ball in white draw the shape of an "A" preferably in Gothic font. You may surround the A in a circle of the same color,
- A guide on how to draw a gothic A may be found here,
- Draw a yellow crown,
And you should be done.
