Constitutional Monarchism, clipped to ConMon, is in most aspects varied ideology but usually somewhat moderate ideology. It believes that there should a monarch should rule, but should be restricted by formal constitutional means.
Constitutional Monarchism is distinguished from Ceremonial Monarchism in that in a Constitutional Monarchy the monarch still holds power to enact policies, unlike in a Ceremonial Monarchy in which the only power the monarchy has is to act as figureheads. Nonetheless, CerMon is usually considered a type of Constitutional Monarchy, and constitutional monarchies that aren't ceremonial are usually distinguished by the title Semi-Constitutional Monarchy.
Constitutional monarchy, also known as limited monarchy, parliamentary monarchy or democratic monarchy, is a form of monarchy in which the monarch exercises their authority in accordance with a constitution and is not alone in making decisions. Constitutional monarchies differ from absolute monarchies (in which a monarch is the only decision-maker) in that they are bound to exercise powers and authorities within limits prescribed by an established legal framework.
The first constitutional monarchy was created when John of England signed the
one after Magna Carta, which was a major step in the current constitutional monarchy in the UK. Other notable examples are Liechtenstein and Spain.
Orléanism was a major force in French politics during the 19th century. An Orléanist was someone who supported a constitutional monarchy under the House of Orléans. Due to the radical political change, France went under during that period, there were three types of Orléanism:
- Pure Orléanism: Those who support the reign of Louis Philippe I, who came to power after the 1830 July Revolution, which overthrew Charles X's autocratic regime. Pure Orléanists were usually Liberal and Moderate.
- Fusionist Orléanism: A group of dissident Pure Orléanists and some Legitimists who endorsed Philippe, Count of Paris', claim to the House of Orléans and the Crown of France. Fusionist Orléanists were usually Traditionalist Conservatives.
- Progressive Orléanism: A group of dissident Fusionist Orléanists who, after the increasingly Anti-Monarchist sentiment of the 1890s, took up Progressivism and Laicism.
Otto von Habsburg advocated a form of constitutional monarchy based on the primacy of the supreme judicial function, with hereditary succession, mediation by a tribunal is warranted if suitability is problematic.
A semi constitutional monarchy is type of monarchy where the monarch retains large amounts of political power (usually functioning as a powerful executive) however the monarch has some limits placed on their power to prevent tyrants. Typical ways of doing this is an independent and powerful court system that even the monarch is forced to kneel for as well as a parliament for rubber stamping legislation or functioning like a co-habitation like in a semi presidential republic.
Semi Ceremonial Monarchy
A semi ceremonial monarchy is a type of monarchy where the monarch has lost most of their political power to an (mostly) elected chamber but retains considerable amount of influence and soft power over this chamber as well as other, more secretive methods of influencing legislation by concepts such as royal assent. And example of this is Great Britain as the monarch is often thought to have no power and has no hard or constitutionally guaranteed power but through royal assent can influence the passing of bills.
Personality and Behaviour
ConMon is usually portrayed as a bit boring compared with other Monarchists since he isn't as radical. He is also shown to enjoy incest.
