Hello, Dear members of this forum,

I´m a Brazilian young monarchist - Please pardon me the bad English. 

Location: Sobral, a city in the Northeastern Brasil.
Political Position: According to Mr. Harvey´s classification, strongly Paleomanarchist. I dislike many actual monarchs - And the English Crown is deeply hated by me -, although favourable to the claimants. I´m near to Jacobites and Carlists.
Religious Wiews: Tradicionalist Roman Catholic, SSPX´s sympathizer, not sedevacantist.
Hobbies: I read very much. Other occupation is watching anime , although I´m not otaku.

The English (British) Crown has my abiding affection, but then I am English (British). I have no idea what it is ever supposed to have done to Brazil, though. Pleased to meet you too, just the same.

Schneider,

I too am pleased to meet you, but as a Traditional Catholic, sympathetic to the SSPX and a Subject of Her Majesty, Elizabeth II, Queen of Canada, I would like to draw your attention to this thread:

Catholic boy, 8, told he can't be a Cub Scout

I think you may be surprised at the Traditional Catholic attitude toward the House of Windsor!

 Thank you very much!

 @jovan66102 : My opinion about the House of Windsor is personal, but I agree with its legitimacy. I wouldn´t do nothing against it, but I can´t agree with all their acts. It´s not because the Anglicanism, but for other reasons - I would make the Oath. I´m also glad too meet you!

Hello my fellow young monarchist and anime watcher(manga reader?). May I ask you what "Mr. Harvey´s classification" is? and where I can take the test?

He's referring to this 2003 article of mine:

There's no "test."

I've only seen your 2003 article just now - interesting read. Where would you place the ideas of Motesquieu about a trias politica, but where the executive branch can be controlled by nobility? Would that be somewhere in between, like anglomonarchism?

Please to meet you.
I'm another loyalist BTW, supporting Her Majesty the Queen and her heirs according to Law.

Okay, I am a neomonarchist.

Yes, I think so.  Montesquieu admired the English constitution, didn't he?

Note though that "paleomonarchist" doesn't necessarily mean "absolutist."  Many who I would call paleomonarchists would consider the absolutism of the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries to be a corruption of monarchies that were more limited and decentralized in the medieval period they prefer.

While I have some reactionary, anti-modernist views, I am not sure I'm quite consistent enough to call myself a "paleomonarchist."  However "neomonarchists" annoy me when they imply that deposed monarchs of the past who were not as liberal or democratic as King Juan Carlos is had it coming, or advocate that existing monarchies be "modernized" even more than they already have been.   And paleomonarchists annoy me when they refuse to support contemporary monarchs because they're not King St Louis IX.  I have no problem defending both Tsar Nicholas II and his great-nephew's wife Queen Elizabeth II, though they represent rather different types of monarchy.

I'm not sure I'm quite consistent enough to call myself a neomonarchust. I am certainly not a palaeomonarchist, I fit no part of that description. Well, maybe the equal marriage part. I do fit quite a lot of the neomonarchist description, but not all, being very little interested in the social lives of contemporary royalty. Apart from that I believe in judging people of the past by the standards of their time, not ours, and I want to preserve the surviving monarchies as they are and ideally go backwards a bit, not modernise them. Maybe I'm just a monarchist pure and simple.

Just so everyone knows, I can see some problems with that article and probably would not write it exactly the same way today, though I don't particularly want to try to revise it now either.  For some reason though it seems to have garnered the most attention of all my online articles, perhaps because it gives people labels to use, and people (especially the sort of people who read about politics & ideology on the internet) like labels.  In the end I'm with Peter in preferring to simply call myself a "monarchist" and leave it at that.

Where do those of us who support any available monarch these days, yet long for a restoration of the proper tricameral system in Her Majesty's Realms fit?

Baron I think you fit pretty well with what I call an "Anglomonarchist" at the end of the article.
