I'm wondering if there are any movements who would support absolute Monarchy in Australia and not just merely 'constitutional monarchy'? The abolition of power in the hands of oligarchs, and centralization under one strong ruler who will keep stability as well as protect their people.

The man known as the 14th Earl of Loudonn that died in 2012 was said to be descended from King Edward IV and he along with other descendants now live in Australia: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/australiaandthepacific/australia/9373273/Rightful-king-of-England-dies-in-Australia.html

I expect he was descended from Edward IV, such descent is hardly rare, but that was not the basis of the claim. He was the lineal representative of George, Duke of Clarence, Edward IV's next brother. According to the lies of the next brother after that, the child-murdering usurper Richard III, Edward IV's marriage to Elizabeth Woodville was invalid and their children therefore illegitimate, making the senior descendant of Clarence's daughter rightful heir. Well, rightful if you ignore all the centuries that have passed since and all the many reigns of sovereigns acknowledged by parliament and people alike that spanned those centuries. And why would anyone take the word of such a man on anything?

Anyway, the late Earl was that senior descendant, and now presumably his heir is, whoever that might be. Even not knowing that person's identity, since not interested enough to look it up, I feel confident that he or she has no ambitions to be monarch of Australia, absolute or otherwise. And if they did, fulfilment of those ambitions is not to be expected.

I just included it for any possible heirs for any information that can help of how it will go about if however we were to establish Absolute Monarchy?

The feudal aspect can be marketed as a notion of loyalty in return for security to a lord/Monarch who will ensure it for people.

Are there any movements which support it besides maybe some sympathy from the distributist (Democratic Labour) party?
