 Hi !

I am a Monarchist living in Dallas.

I believe in the Divine Right of Kings.

Any like-minded here ?

Welcome!
My wife is from Celeste, a few tens of  miles North West of Dallas.

Careful of the meaning you assign to 'divine right of kings'.

As so stated, it is largely thought to be a protestant innovation, and the protestants here abouts don't support it.

Again,
Welcome!

You're not the only monarchist here living in Dallas, a certain rather promminent member also does. Dunno about the Divine Right of Kings. As far as I can make out the Catholics think it's a Protestant heresy, I can't remember any of the Orthodox or Protestants embracing it, and the atheists and agnostics obviously don't. We all believe in the right of kings to succeed and reign, though, and maybe there is someone else of your specific way of thinking. Welcome anyway.

By "divine right of kings", I refer to a divine autocrat
who rules by and under the authority of God and is not
subject to any earthly regulation like a constitution.


ON MONARCHY - Vladika Averky

The idea of monarchy itself, in the return to which as
the historic and immemorial form for governing Russia
many rightly see salvation, is holy and dear to us not
for itself, but only insofar as it is supported by our
Orthodox faith and Church and insofar as our Tsar is
an "Orthodox Tsar," as we sing in our old national
anthem
; insofar as he is not just formally and
officially, but in actual fact the first son and also
the exalted Protector and Defender of the Orthodox
Faith and Church; insofar as he is really the
"Anointed of God" who has received special gifts of
grace in the Mystery of anointing performed over him
by the Church to be the "King and Judge of the People
of God
," as he himself confesses in the prayer he
reads before everyone in the church during his sacred
coronation. Therefore he enters the altar through the
royal doors and receives Holy Communion before the
holy throne of God as an equal of the other sacred
ministers, which, of course, could not be done by any
other monarch who was not Orthodox and who did not
respond to the demands of the Church, who was not
sanctified with grace by the Church.

This is decisively confirmed for us by the
ever-memorable Fr. John of Kronstadt, who said,
"Who places earthly kings on their thrones? He Who
 alone sits on the throne of fire from eternity, and alone,
in the true sense, rules over all creation and heaven
and earth with all the creatures which inhabit them.
From Him alone is royal power given to the kings of
the earth
; He crowns them with the royal diadem...
Be silent, dreaming constitutionalists and parliamentarians!
 `Depart from me, Satan! Thou art an offense unto Me,
for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those
 that be of men' (Matt. 16:23), said the Lord to Peter who
 denied Him. Depart also, you who oppose God's command.
It is not your task to order the thrones of earthly kings.
Away, bold ones who do not know how to govern yourselves,
but are always quarreling with each other... Authority, power,
courage, and wisdom is given the Tsar from the Lord to
govern his subjects" (Sermon, 1907).

OK, we do have some people who support that, as well as supporters of constitutional monarchy like myself and all shades in between. The specific phrase is usually taken to refer to the doctrine associated with James I and VI of Great Britain. As said I'm not aware of anyone who favours that, but autocracy certainly.
