Welcome back!

Oh yes, and KyMonarchist, I haven't said this on Youtube because I despise the comments systemt here, thanks for the links to those Cartoons. Watching delightfully cheerful cartoon mammels being horribly destroyed is somewhat cartarghic and appeals to my somewhat more barbaric nature. =]

Thanks for the welcome, and to KYMonarchist, I think I do have a YouTube account, but I created it a few years ago to post an experimental video of me snowboarding, which I believe I deleted, so for all intents and purposes no I don't have a YouTube account.

Greetings, everyone. I have enjoyed reading this forum for some time and finally decided to register. I am a Traditionalist Catholic and very sympathetic (surprise, surprise!) to monarchism. I am interested in history, politics, literature, music (among other things), and, of course, royalty, especially European royal houses. I have two blogs: The Cross of Laeken, (on Belgian royalty) and the Sword & the Sea (on Scandinavia and the Baltic). I want to thank Theodore for setting up this forum, and look forward to participating.

Hallo all, been lurking on the forums like the horrid creature of the lagoon that I am for a while now, but I've decided to live dangerously and actually sign up so's I can post.

I know. What was I thinking?

Anyhoo, I'm an Anglican consitutional monarchist and currently a student studying American History at the University of Kent. In my spare time I read, draw, write and take part in historical reenactment (Dark Ages to War of the Roses, mostly).

Hope to see you all around at some point.

Hello, my name is Robert, though I often use the nickname Kiev. I am a Russian-American who was born in America. I have often pondered the possibility of Monarchy's return, and until this point I have struggled through varying beliefs. Until that is, I finally began editing the concept of constitutional monarchy. I believe in the concept of people's choice and representation, but I also believe in the iron hand of a king and the authority of an aristocracy. All and all - I just work to find what would be most efficient. I've been on a path to become a Social Scientist, though it may be years before it comes of any use.

Welcome!

I'm Anglophile, so the Tricameral System once once my only thought in monarchy.  I've come to see the value of a King and Council as well as King Alone from my exposure to other cultural backgrounds.

May you find food for thought here, as I have.
(And look about for the religious minefields.....)

Haha. Yes.

In all truth, I am an Agnostic Deist. I believe in god but not the old customs of religion, though I am tolerant of them.

When I try to design governance, I try to make a compromise toward both sides, rather than one. Balance is my ultimate aim. I do not believe a government can be ruled through silly peace and harmony. A nation needs strength and stability. Though, I thank you for the warning.

Hello one and all, please allow me to humbly introduce myself as someone who is interested in learning more about the less "contemporary" systems of governance, in this case being monarchy and it's related principles.

Discarding formality however, I would be happy to share a little about myself. My family is of German origin and quite proud of that, originally coming to North America as Hessian mercenaries, hired to fight for King George the III. Later the son of said mercenary  served in the Canadian militia during The War of 1812, aiding in the invasion of the United States.

That said, the other branch of my family, also German, is believed to have fought for the Confederate States of America during the War of Northern Aggression (having settled in what was then the Texas area). All in all, two of my three German bloodlines are believed to be descended from nobility, one of a lesser Hessian noble house, the other believed to have been a part of a Princely Austrian House, though the research is still continuing and nothing on the latter is yet verifiable.

Finally, my family was traditionally Episcopalian though it now is generally non-denominational. I do hope this introductory speech wasn't to lengthy and I hope to learn more about the principles of Monarchical government while I'm here. Thank you.
