My second choice would be Russia.  I have such a facination for the Romanovs, and would love to see a Romanov crowned and enthroned in the Kremlin again.

Since I am from Ethiopia I would like to see the Ethiopian monarchy restored.  The Ethiopian monarchy still has a good chance in being restored, even though the fascist regime of Meles Zenawi is in power.  Meles Zenawi and the TPLF days is numbered.  I also strongly believe that the Serbian monarchy has an very good chance to be restored.  H.R.H Crown Prince Alexander is well liked in Serbia, and he has good relationships with members of the government.  Even Georgia's monarchy have a good chance in being restored as well.  Russia I would say might have a chance in twenty or thirty years.  Romania and Bulgaria might have a chance in the near future.  I am sorry to say I do not see any hope for France Germany or Greece, because these countries are so entrenched in the republic propaganda political belief.  In order for a possible restoration of the monarchies in those countries, you would have to remove the entire republic system in those countries, and win the peoples hearts an minds once again.

Yes, I was thinking about that too, but not so much for ceremonial reasons as for the huge influence Russia seems to have at the countries surrounding it. When Russia what an empire, the new countries in Eastern Europe became kingdoms. When Russia was the Soviet Union, they became communist states as well. When Russia appeared to become democratic under Jeltsin so did the states around it, and since that it's some sort of presidential dictatorship under Putin, countries like Ukraine, Georgia and such seem to follow suit. A new Russian empire could be a great example from the Balkan to Mongolia. I think for me, it would be a tie between Russia and Iran.

And yes, as Royalcello said the original question was indeed aside from the current reality. Perhaps rather theoretical because of that, but I was still curious about it. I wonder what Baron and Ponocrates think about it.

If we go by the strictest definition of the thread's original premises, I would nominate Iran. For no other reason than that the destruction of the Islamic Republic is not only to be hoped for (and likely in any case). But Egypt was the first monarchy in the Muslim world to fall to a republican revolution, and the disastrous consequences for its people felt ever since.

I think I would favor Russia to correct the greatest disaster for monarchy after the French Revolution.  Also, partly because Russia is not fully integrated into the West (with Putin doing his best to keep it separated) and Russia is huge and would influence more people and nationalities.   The monarchy had a civilizing influence that Russia needs today.  And I would love to see the Romanovs restored to right that wrong that happened ninety and some years ago.

Indeed, restoration in Russia would also demonstrate a repudiation of Communism, the sincerity of which is doubted in Eastern Europe, not least the depth of feelings among Ukrainians and Baltic peoples.

However, the West did not have so much a problem with Islam before the Iranian Revolution, after 1683. That, coupled with the gradual destruction of our own culture and society from the 1960s onwards by the Left, has led to the current malaise and fear of Islam. Although the Islamic Republic regime is no friend of Sunni Islamists and vice versa, the collapse of the said evil regime would only be a blow to Islamic fundamentalism, and a better chance of constitutional monarchy and genuine democracy being successfully established.

Although Ukraine and the Baltics' experience with the Czars weren't all that pleasent either...

But as said, I'd probably restore the Iranian monarchy along with maybe the Egyptian one.

If Baron can have his Eastern Roman Empire, then I want the whole thing.

Alright then, I'll return to Russia - the "Third Rome" as they sometimes called it.

If I were an Alien Space-Bat, I would restore Fuad II of Egypt, the legal successor to the pharaohs. This might even produce a knockoff effect in the Arab world, which would be nice.

More realistically, I would choose Libya, as it would be a powerful statement on the relevance of monarchism today to have a monarchical restoration result from one of the Arab Spring uprisings, and again, knockoff effect!

The United States.

If the 13 Colonies can go monarchist again, anywhere can.

The Republican Party would have to consider a name change.

Ponocrates,

I didn't go for the whole thing because of conflicts with reigning sovereigns. (England as part the UK, Spain, Monaco, Liechteinstien, etc).

Maybe the 'left whigs' with the demoncrates as 'radical left whigs'.
