Which monarchy had dominion over Idaho and the Northwest (but specifically Idaho)?  The British?  Spanish?  Dare I hope, the Russians?  I've flirted with forming the Idaho Monarchy Party, and if this ever comes to fruitition I'm sure I'd be shot by the hyper-aggressive, uber-radical republican lovers in this state...but it'd be fun either way

At first I thought it was the French because of the Louisiana Purchase, but when I looked at a map, modern day Idaho was touching the French territory but not under their rule.

It might have just been Native American territory but I am not sure, so now I will keep looking into it because now it got my attention.

Upon further investigation, it looks like Idaho was was part of something called Oregon Country or Oregon Territory, it was made up of Oregon, Washington, and Idaho from the USA side. Then lower part of British Columbia form the Canadian side of modern day borders.

It seems that USA and the British were disputing who got it, then after the war of 1812 it was split between the British and the USA and what they got is what makes the borders of modern day Canada and USA.

Okay now I am confused.  I opened up this historical atlas I have, and the Spanish had that part including some of Canada and everything stretching all the way to the Mississippi River in 1783, and modern day Oregon, Washington and Nevada were unexplored.  The Spanish built forts to protect their lands but most of them were in the southwest part of modern day USA.  Then in 1803 everything all of a sudden changes.  It talks about Treaties, Purchase and War.  But Idaho was claimed by the British.

If anyone knows more about this and I am wrong, then go ahead and correct me.

Holding 'title' and holding 'dominion' aren't the same thing.  Most of the Eastern Colonies of His Britannic Majesty, on paper, at some point went to the sea, but the Indians in most of that area didn't know it...

I'm not at all sure that Idaho was ever under a European monarchy.  Maybe the local chieftain is close as you'll get...

It was British territory, later given to The United States.

My question, too. By the time the RNWMP got out there, the border was surveyed and defined. The Crown granted the entire watershed of Hudson Bay (Rupert's Land) to the HBC, but the only States included (parts of each, none completely, are Montana, Minnesota and the Dakotas. No Idaho.
