    Not to be confused with Conmon.png Constitutional Monarchism.

    Elective Monarchism, shortened to Elecmon, is a non-quadrant monarchist ideology. Elecmon was born as an alternative to lineage based monarchies who had a tendency to result in succession crisis after a few generations. The voting powers are usually only held by high ranking nobles and influential clergy members.

    He believes that the state should be based around a monarch (ranging from Abmon.png Absolute to Cermon.png Ceremonial) that instead of being hereditary, should be elected. Usually the monarchical candidates would be elected by a specific pool of nobles, but this process could theoretically stretch "to the plebs" (if none of the nobility are deemed qualified).


    Elective monarchism was born in the antique era. One of his most notable appearances was in Rome during Roman kingdom era. He is also known for the Cball-HRE.png Holy Roman Empire and the Kingdom of Jerusalem. He made a semi-comeback in the renaissance with the Cball-PL.png Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.
