Hello to all! I apologise for my lack of activity. I'm still here, and still supporting the restoration of monarchies around the world! [smile]

Oh, to anyone who cares to follow, I'm on Twitter.
I'm also on Facebook.

Hello!
My name is Samuel, and I live in the northern USA. I seem to differ from most monarchists (especially American) in that I am a Protestant. I'm most interested in the history of German states, Prussia, and the possibility of a monarchist Fourth Reich (very much NOT Nazi if the word "reich" throws you off). My opinion of American Monarchism is that it would be a welcome change provided that the monarchy was Christian. However I am not a revolutionary and accept a republic as a viable mode of government, although that quickly fails due to its change into democracy. I feel that the aforementioned change is what inevitably will lead to the demise of the USA, and I hope that monarchy shall be the replacement. I'm extremely pleased to find an active group of monarchists and look forward to participating in discussions.

Welcome! I myself am an Episcopalian, though opinion varies as to whether that counts as "Protestant." One of our most prolific members, BaronVonServers, attends an Anglican church but has described himself as a "High Church Baptist" and is probably more robustly Protestant than I am. Most of us support monarchies of all religions, including non-Christian ones where appropriate.

By Protestant I mean Presbyterian Calvinist. The liturgy is very similar to much of Anglicanism, though government and some theology is not.

Hello, my name is Glenn King. I am retired and live in Columbus, Ohio. I joined this forum a few days ago because I thought that it might be a place in which discussions of what role monarchy might place in modern societies might occur. I am particularly interested how monarchies might relate to the democratic forms of government. Are democracy and monarchy within a mixed system of government possible or are they absolutely incompatible principles. These are just some of the issues I find of interest. 
 
At this point I do wonder whether I belong within this forum because most posts which I have read seem to be by persons who are convinced believers in monarchy and who seem to see both republicanism and democratic values and institutions as being purely negative. On a practical level I do support constitutional monarchies where they do exist in the modern day world. However since I do not believe in any form of purely autocratic forms of government whether theocratic, fascist, communist, or absolutely monarchical as in states such as Saudi Arabia,  I would support the liberalization and democratization of those societies while retaining the best aspects of monarchism and other hierarchical and meritocratic principles. 
 
Anyway that is where I am at. If this type of perspective and these types of questions are not welcome here just let me know. Though I do hope that they are welcome here.
 
Sincerely
 
Glenn King

Your views are much like mine, and there are others here of similar bent. Also some who are as you describe, but in general we all co-exist amicably (and when not so amicably, it is rarely because of this kind of question) and respect each others' opinions. Welcome, and I hope you will stick around and participate regularly. Just to clarify my own view, I do not see democracy as a good in itself, but do regard it as the best means of obtaining good governance and peaceful transfers of power. I certainly do not consider autocracy as in any way desirable in the present age, which does not mean that I condemn it out of hand as a historical phenomenon. Constitutional monarchy I regard as the best system of government there is, preferable in all ways to both unbridled democracy and unchecked autocracy.

Hello my name is Mark. I'm the claimant to the House Of Bourbon through direct descent from Valois branch of Porhoet. What attracted me to this forum was the discussion of restarting the Arpad Dynasty of Hungary. My mother is a very direct descendant of Bartolf Saint Margaret's brother who were directly descended from Saint Stephen. Clan Leslie and the Short familys are the top claimants. I have reason to believe myself and my relatives are keys even they're unaware of their heritage but I'll go more in detail in the thread once I find it again.

Hi I come from the Ancient Spanish Family of the Farfan De Los Godos. My family geneaolgy can be traced for more than a thousand years, and there are books in spain just on our family geneolgy. My ancestors were of the upper Nobility of the visgothic kingdom of spain and our ancestor was the brother of King Roderic/Rodrigo last gothic king of Spain before Moors invaded. My family was exiled to Morroco were they became chief adivorsors to the Islamic princes. My family was in Morroco until key Juan asked for the return of our family and was granted land in sevilla. In Morroco our family retained the purity of gothic Blood and Faith. My family went on to be Noblemens in the Kingdom of spain. My family were Knights, intellecutals, bishops, while in spain.

Hello there! Im Justin, its always is a pleasure for me to meet and befriend a fellow monarchist! I've only joined about a half hour ago and this is the first forum ive ever been on so be sure to correct me if I do something wrong.

I conciser myself a social traditional monarchist. Particularly; I conciser myself a royalist of British and Roman monarchy because of my Maltese and Scottish heritage.

Heraldry and the Divine right of kings/Mandate of heaven are topics I am most interested in discussing on this forum.

Thank You! [biggrin]
