Hello there!

InVinoVeritas, it is good to see someone new around here!

If I may ask, who do you support as ruler of a monarchical Finland? Or you think it should remain a republic, even though it has been a monarchy for most of its existence, AFAIK.

Well, I sadly don't know enough about all the possible candidates to form a balanced view on the subject, but I guess the most likely candidate in the current climate would be Mafalda von Hessen. And besides, I'm much more interested in the institution of monarchy than in individual monarchs, unless they're exceptionally good or bad.

I'm Matthew, 19 years old and I'm a Unionist Scot who lives in both Ayrshire and Oxfordshire at different times of year.
My main monarchist projects are The Scottish Tory, a British politics and royalty opinions page, and Scots for a French Royal Restoration, an Orleanist-Fusioniste campaign in English.
Links to both are found in my signature.
Whilst I tend to say that I am a High Tory, this is a bit of a tricky label since it is quite anglocentric and I am neither Anglican nor Roman Catholic.
I am staunchly Reformed in my theology, High in my aesthetics, Baptist in my approach to sacraments and confused in church polity.
I was once a facebook friend of Royal Cello (Theodore) before my untimely zuccing, explained in a French Unionist article:https://frenchunionist.org/2019/10/12/an-anjouist-plot/
It was in trying to find Theodore's email that I ended up on this site.
I hope I can contribute well to the discussions here.

I must admit that the difference between republican monarchism and plain republicanism is not clear to me. Perhaps you could explain just what you see the difference as being? That aside, welcome.

Welcome!

I wasn't sure if I would fit here either and yet I'm still here after two months (and a little).

It is good to see female monarchists, as they offer a different and vital point-of-view.

I hope you have a good time here, even if your views on the subject seem unorthodox at first glance!

OK, thanks. Elective monarchy, basically. While it is true that the majority here supports hereditary monarchy, whether constitutional (my own preference) or absolute, I don't think anyone regards elective monarchy as per se illegitimate, especially with the historical examples of the Holy Roman Empire and the Polish/Lithuanian Commonwealth before us. Not to mention the contemporary example of the Kingdom of Malaysia, though that is really more rota than election. As for Christian ideology, which you also mention as a concern, most here are Christians of one sort or another but not all, including myself as a convinced atheist and humanist as well as monarchist. I hope you will find the forum comfortable for you and will continue to contribute.

My name is Mordecai son of Yom Tov and Simcha. I am a Levite first born son of first born. My father was US Foreign Service Officer. I founded a village in Judea (overlooking Ayn Gedi, Jerusalem, Hebron, most of the Dead Sea), yes we have Ayn Gedi vineyards. I am a follower of Rabbi Nachman returned in the flesh and born out of a well in Tiberias over a hundred years ago. My mission in life is to bring the remains of Rabbi Nachman to Jerusalem, from Uman, Ukraine. My village is named after the 6th book of Moses (yes there is one) and I promote the letter that Moses received at Mt Sinai with the tablets and that was penned by Rabbi Nachman enabling Nelson to defeat Napoleon on the dye of the Battle of Trafalgar. Separation of Church and State is a good thing but the King needs to accept Josef for his religious advisors to qualify a priests and not Magicians. Religious leaders must never reject the five Books of Moses, doing so makes their religious studies invalid. The tree of knowledge without the tree of life is useless. We should all strive to live 70 productive years like King David, the same way Moses lived exactly 120 years as Gd had decreed. Kings must step down at age 70! Only to answer questions IF ASKED.
I possess the secret to always being happy and this is also the key to overcoming the rebellious angel of Babylon (He is at War against us).

I have to admit, that I still live in Germany, and that I'm not a citizen of Iraq. My parents fought for Kurdish independence from Iraq, and they refused to return to Kurdistan, as long as it's part of Iraq. I don't want to swear allegiance to Iraq, because I don't identify as an Iraqi. I have feared telling the truth on this forum, because I fear, that you will consider my Kurdish identity phony. But I speak Kurdish, and I want to return to Kurdistan, when it obtains independence from Iraq. I consider myself a German Kurd. My ancestry is both Kurdish and German, and I speak both Kurdish and German.

No, that doesn't make me consider you a phony. Have you been to Kurdistan at all? Not a trick question, if you haven't you haven't and could still legitimately identify with your Kurdish heritage.

If you'd plan on living in Germany for ages to come, I'd tell you to focus more on your German heritage. But since it seems to be your sincere wish to return to an independent Kurdistan if such a thing materializes, I can have no problem with you identifying as a Kurd. In fact, I think it introduces a heroic element to your identity.

I haven't been to Kurdistan yet.

Nothing phoney about living in exile - plenty deposed monarchs have had to do that!
I hope you find your way home soon.
May Kurdistan be a Kingdom!

I will also return to an independent Republic of Kurdistan. Kurdistan becoming a kingdom is extremely unlikely to happen, and I want Kurdistan to be a republic, unless a descendant of a foreign royal dynasty marries a Kurdish woman.
