• An absolute monarch is a monarch that has complete and unlimited power to rule his or her people.
  • It means a Ruler with absolute governing power. No other governing body. If I just answered a homework question, just want to add you never know if I'm right or not. ;o)
  • I wrote about 3 papers on this. Kyogre got it pretty much but I would also like to add that Absolute Monarchs often abused their power and made unjust laws. They also could send people to court without trials and all sorts of horrible things. Louis XIV is a good example. OK let me stop now lol
  • england,for over three hundred ruled and conquered by division.
  • The modern day name which refers to states that have a traditional monarchy in which a sole monarch has absolute and unlimited power over the state. Can sometimes be associated with dictatorships. Rule by one person—a monarch, usually a king or a queen—whose actions are restricted neither by written law nor by custom; a system different from a constitutional monarchy and from a republic. Absolute monarchy persisted in France until 1789 and in Russia until 1917. a government determined solely by the ruler; also called despotic monarchy. Example: "Unions are demanding reform of Africa's last absolute monarchy". Some monarchies have powerless or symbolic parliaments and other governmental bodies that the monarch can alter or dissolve at will. Despite effectively being absolute monarchies, they are technically constitutional monarchies due to the existence of a constitution and national canon of law. The popularity of the notion of absolute monarchy declined substantially after the French Revolution and American Revolution, which promoted theories of government based on popular sovereignty. Among the few states that retain a rather absolute monarchy are Brunei, Oman, Saudi Arabia and Vatican City. Many formerly absolutist nations, such as Jordan and Morocco, have moved towards constitutional monarchies, although the monarch also retains considerable power in both nations. In Bhutan, the government had move from absolute monarchy to constitutional monarchy following planned parliamentary elections to the Tshogdu in 2003. Nepal had several swings between constitutional rule and direct rule related to the Nepalese Civil War, the Maoist insurgency, and the 2001 Nepalese royal massacre. Unusually in a time when many nations are moving towards decreased monarchical power, Liechtenstein has moved towards expanding the power of the monarch; the Prince of Liechtenstein was given expanded powers after a referendum amending the Constitution of Liechtenstein in 2004.
