    Absolute Monarchism (AbMon), or Absolutism, is an authoritarian ideology which advocates for a single monarch with absolute rule over the state who is not bound by any formal rules, often being seen as owning the countries they reside over. Such rule is often justified through Religious.png religious means though some modern proponents of this ideology use Nrx.png secular arguments.



    Absolute Monarchy in Antiquity where Monarch.png monarchs managed to garner extreme amounts of power over their kingdoms. Sometimes even achieving a cult of personality, a famous example being the Pharaohs of Paleoegyptianism-icon.png Ancient Egypt.

    Medieval Period

    While most Monarchies in Europe were limited by the Feud.png feudal system, some monarchs have managed to garner enough power to rule in an absolute or semi-absolute manner. An example of an absolute monarchy in Europe existed in Russia under Peter the Great who expanded the power of the monarch by reducing the nobility power and creating a central bureaucracy. This created the Russian tradition of absolutism, also known as Tsar.png Tsarist autocracy and was expanded on by Catherine the Great. Some of these examples have often failed due to Jacobin.png Republicanismpix.png Orthlen.png certain republican revolutions. Although, some have managed to end without Revolutions.

    China also experienced periods of Absolute Monarchism, which usually decayed into more Bureaucratic forms of government, which caused them to lose the percieved "Mandate of Heaven" and be overthrown, which was believed to cause the cycle to repeat.

    Modern Day

    Currently there are a couple of absolute monarchies, those being: Cball-Brunei.png Brunei Darussalam, Cball-Eswatini.png Kingdom of Eswatini, Cball-Saudi.png Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Cball-Oman.png Sultanate of Oman, Catheo.png Vatican City and Cball-Qatar.png the State of Qatar. Some monarchies lost the title of "absolute" relatively recently, those being: The Kingdom of Bhutan, The Kingdom of Nepal (now a republic) and The Kingdom of Tonga. There are also some Non-Cermon.pngCeremonial Conmon.png Constitutional Monarchies that get lumped in to the category of "absolute monarchies" by left-wing journalists, example being the Principality of Liechtenstein.

    Some powerful dictatorships are put into the category of "Absolute Monarchies", notably the Juche.png Democratic People's Republic of Korea, although both followers of such dictatorships' ideologies and followers of absolute monarchism disagree with this assessment.


    God-Given Right to Rule

    Most absolute Monarchies lay their claim to power on Religion, making most absolute monarchies theocratic or Establishmentarian in nature. This concept is called "The Divine Right of Kings" in Europe and "The Mandate of Heaven" in China, and "Devaraja/Chakravarti" in India and its sphere of influence in Southeast Asia, although there are some differences in their theology and practices. This does not have to be the case and there can be a secular absolute monarchy.

    Supremacy as a requirement to order

    One of the main secular arguments for Absolute Monarchy is that for a society to have order and security, it must have power that stems from one absolute body and that body should be the monarch.


    Cball-Albania.png Albania Zog I.png

    • Ahmet Zogu, or Zog I of Albania was the leader of Albania from 1922 to 1939. At age 27, he first served as Albania's youngest ever prime minister (1922–1924), then as president (1925–1928), and finally as king (1928–1939).

    He held various ministerial posts in the Albanian government before being driven into exile in June 1924, but returned later in the year with Cball-Yugoslavia-old.png Yugoslav and White Russian military support and was subsequently elected prime minister. Zog was elected president in January 1925 and vested with dictatorial powers, with which he enacted major domestic reforms, suppressed civil liberties, and struck an alliance with Benito Mussolini's Italy. In September 1928, Albania was proclaimed a monarchy and he acceded to the throne as Zog I, King of the Albanians.

    During his leadership, he implemented fiscal reforms such as Authcap.png privatization and established a Strato.png militaristic, Natcon.png nationalist and Authoritarian Conservatism.png traditionalist regime that somewhat copied Classfash.png Fascism, such as a salute that looked suspiciously like fascist.

    Cball-Qing.png China YuanShikai.png

    • Yuan Shikai was a Chinese military and government official who rose to power during the late Qing dynasty and eventually ended the Qing dynasty rule of China in 1912, later becoming the Emperor of China.

    He established the first modern army and a more efficient provincial government in North China during the last years of the Qing dynasty before forcing the abdication of the Xuantong Emperor, the last monarch of the Qing dynasty in 1912. Through negotiation, he became the first President of the Republic of China in 1912. This army and bureaucratic control were the foundation of his Legalism.png autocratic rule. In 1915 he attempted to Trad.png restore the hereditary monarchy in China, with himself as the Hongxian Emperor.

    He first tried to save the dynasty with a number of modernization projects including bureaucratic, Authcap.png fiscal, judicial, educational, and other reforms, despite playing a key part in the failure of the Hundred Days' Reform with others Authoritarian Conservatism.png conservative elements.
