“Is It A Possible To Have Monarchy Today?”
Dr. Marshall posed this question on his Twitter and my answer to that is: Yes, definitely!
In fact, we do have monarchies today….mainly in the Old Kingdom, Europe.
America, compared to the UK and Europe, is very very young, a baby, so it makes sense that they have very little knowledge of their roots and ancient history, and it is kinda nice to see this renewed interest in monarchy systems……almost like the prodigal son returning back to his father, his homeland and his seat of power.
Where there is no monarchy, the people descend into chaos and avarice because there is no Divine institution to inspire them to heavenly ideals.
This is also why marriage, family, and family-friendly policies are on the decline in America.
Monarchy and marriage are the only two institutions created by God.
When we reject one, we reject the other, and disorder and chaos ensue.
A monarchy is only as strong and efficacious as its legitimacy.
God’s hand needs to be in the monarchy, otherwise, it is a counterfeit and would fail in its purpose.
Unlike in America, where people are voted into power in a popularity contest, the monarchy does not care for popularity or democratic processes.
This is because monarchs by virtue of their bloodline traceable back to original kings have the Divine Right to rule.
Just as the ancient Biblical kingdoms who went against the kingdom of Israel failed miserably because God was with the ancient kingdoms of Israel, so too today, legitimate monarchies always withstand every form of attack or loss, and they grow in power because God’s hand is upon these legitimate monarchies.
Monarchs are anointed, not voted or appointed; they are crowned in an abbey, not elected or sworn into office.
So, yes Dr. Marshall, it IS possible to have a monarchy today.
But in order for it to be legit, it needs to fulfill two main rules:
A TRACEABLE BIOLOGICAL LINEAGE, A BLOODLINE BACK TO ANCIENT KINGS
The monarch’s biological lineage, their bloodline, must be traceable all the way back to ancient Biblical kings, because it was God who set up the monarchy system, way back then.
This is kinda like how popes have their spiritual lineage traced back to St. Peter. Nobody can simply pop up from nowhere and suddenly claim to be pope; they need to have spiritual lineage to St. Peter and this is only achieved via the priestly and ordination rites of the Church.
Additionally, monarchs being traceable to Old Testament kings fulfills the Judaic requirement.
And here is a fun fact: a monarch whose bloodline can be traced back to ancient kings of Israel also has a biological lineage linked to Jesus, God Himself!
A TRACEABLE SPIRITUAL LINEAGE BACK TO JESUS
Monarchs must be anointed, established, and crowned in the ancient rites of the Catholic Church, which was founded by Jesus.
This represents the New Testament and the Church established by Christ Himself.
So if a biological bloodline is found, but the person is not crowned under the ancient rites of the church, the monarchy is not legitimate.
It is almost like trying to breathe with one lung – extremely difficult and the person may not last very long.
Both lungs are needed ie both the bloodline from the Old Testament and the spiritual lineage from the New Testament, because the New Testament is a fulfillment of the Old Testament.
With both conditions fulfilled, only then can the monarchy or the monarch be declared as a legitimate one.
Now, does such a monarchy exist today?
The British Royal Family.
From the time of Queen Victoria, we have known that the British royal family’s bloodline descended from King David in the Bible, and this means that His Majesty King Charles III is a descendant by blood of King David, as was his mother, the late Queen Elizabeth II, as were their ancestors, including Queen Victoria and so on.
The BRF also knows of the power that is in the anointing received from the Catholic Church, and even though King Henry VIII created the Anglican church, the monarchy never got rid of the Catholic rites in its rituals.
The same centuries-old Catholic rites are used in coronations, funerary rites, baptisms, and so on. Every baby born in the royal family is even baptised with water from the river Jordan, the river in which Jesus was baptised. The Royal Family retains its strength and legitimacy by continuing that biological and spiritual linkage.
Some people resent monarchs because they think have wrong ideas of what being a monarch entails. Through the warped lenses of capitalisim and democracy, it can be easy for these people to be blind to the huge responsibilities that a monarch has to bear.
Being a monarch is not a position of celebrity, despite the power and privilege they have. They are also not politicians and are not allowed to get involved in politics because their calling is much higher than these temporal affairs. This is similar to the way priests and popes are not to get involved in politics. Their main role is to elevate the general public spiritually and inspire them to higher heavenly ideals, a replication of God’s kingdom on earth.
Being a monarch is no easy task: they must live a life being a near-perfect model for others to be inspired, must make heavy decisions, must represent their kingdoms, must be faithful to God; it is a life of heavy duty, sacrifice, dignity and service, with barely any time off, as exemplified by the late Queen Elizabeth II
, who worked tirelessly and without complaint, right up to 2 days before her death
, from battling the excruciatingly painful disease, bone cancer.
It is the same with priests and the pope. Like monarchs, theirs too are lives of duty, sacrifice (especially sacrifice of earthly and physical pleasures, like sex and so on) and total service.
Everything a monarch does is in service to the people; they are celebrities, with the only goal of gaining popularity and filling their pockets. All their outings, appointments, charity work and so on, is all done in service of the people, and to help people.
For example, last year, Catherine The Princess of Wales helped raise £20.4 million last year for charity.
In the very short time that Charles has been king, following the death of his mother Queen Elizabeth II last, he has achieved the following:
- donated £1 million to food banks
- increased bonuses to all royal family household staff
And more recently, it was announced today that the King has asked for profits from a £1bn-a-year crown estate windfarm deal to be redirected and used for the “wider public good” rather than using it to fund the monarchy. He literally just gave the country a gift of 250 million POUNDS of money from his own estate!!!
As you can see, the monarchy has always been about duty, sacrifice and service. Think back to the times of King David – he was king, but a lot is reported about what he did for the people, how he led them to wars for their protection, and how he improved their lives. These are essentially the responsibilities expected from a monarch – constant hard work!
When we bow or curtsy to a King or Queen (as well as prince, princesses, dukes and duchesses), we are not bowing to the person. They are no longer a person. We are bowing/curtsying to them as representatives of God’s kingship on earth; we are bowing to their office and their anointing.
Again, it is similar when we bow, curtsy or kiss the ring of a pope (as well as cardinals and bishops). It is not the person we revere, it is their office, their anointing and the fact they are in persona Christi; they are a representation of Christ on earth.
In fact, back in the day, when a priest walks by, everyone in their immediate vicinity drops to their knees; it did not matter if you were in a muddy field, you drop!!
This is also similar to how if a monarch (or prince, princess, duke, duchess) walks by, you bow (males) or curtsy (females) to them.
But society has become so self-obsessed, narcissistic and prideful that any thought of bowing to a higher authority fills them with rage and disgust; they cannot stand hierarchical systems – see Meghan Markle mocking her curtsy to the Queen. She is truly despicable.
But in a way, she is representative of many Americans: defiant, democratic, no respect for the patriarchy or hierarchical systems, and with no respect for authority or those in power.
Like them, she sees tradition as archaic, constrictive and unnecessary, but we have no future if we abandon the traditions of our past.
How is a tree to thrive and grow, when it has no roots?
She was more than happy for people to curtsy or bow to her, though(!)
Is it any wonder then that with no respect for authority, this same attitude has filtered down to families? Children do not respect their parents and wives do not submit to their husbands, and the family in Western societies is in self-destruct mode.
The monarchy also does not answer to the people; it answers only to the Church, which is the intermediary between the monarchy, the people and God Himself.
In the hierarchy system of leadership, the people answer to the monarch, the monarch answers to the Church, and the Church answers to God.
This hierarchy system is repeated in God’s heavenly kingdom, and on a much smaller scale, the earthly family: the children answer to their mother, and the mother answers to her husband.
The monarch’s family or marriage is also very important, as it is should inspire people and provide an example of a God-inspired marital union.
Marriage is the 2nd institution created by God, remember?
We saw this in the marriage of the late Queen and her husband; they remained dutiful to each other to the very end.
The pomp, circumstances, and lavish elaborate rituals of the monarchy that we see during certain events are merely symbolic of the heavenly ideals and aspirations – if an earthly kingdom is meant to be symbolic of God’s heavenly kingdom, it makes total sense for it to have grandeur about it. This is also similar to the Catholic Church – it too represents God’s kingdom on earth and this is why lavish churches, artwork, and so on are seen in the Church.
I truly do not understand this current pope who hates the traditions, vestments and pomp of both the church and his office.
To me, it is a false humility and a mark of covert arrogance.
I know he rejects these because he is trying to portray himself as humble and rejecting of grandeur, but dude, therein lies your problem – you think it is about you.
This is not about you; it has never been about you. You, as a person, do not exist anymore once you became Pope.
These traditions and lavish vestments are not for YOU; they are for Christ, for God.
You are His representative on earth; you are in persona Christi and you WILL dress and conduct yourself according to your station and office!!
The more you delve into Catholicism and the ancient traditions of the Church, the more you will have an appreciation for monarchies, and the more you will see how monarchies and the Church are inextricably linked, and how they both function as two lungs necessary for proper survival of a people ie civilisations, societies and countries thrive best when they breathe from both of these lungs, a monarchy and the Church.
What about countries that wish to have a monarchy, but do not fulfill the two main requirements ie there is no one with a bloodline traceable to the original kings?
In that case, they can still enjoy the benefits, graces and protections of a monarchy system by aligning themselves with a legitimate monarchy.
We see this in Australia and Canada, both of which are also under the monarchial rule of the UK.
When King Charles gets crowned, he will become King of the United Kingdom, as well as King of Canada and Australia, and all the realms…..just like his mother, Queen Elizabeth II was.
These countries, as well as the other countries under British kingdom, are still able to have their own laws, their own rules, and govern themselves as they see fit, but also have the graces, benefits and protections of being under a legitimate monarchy. It provides not just material & physical benefits, but spiritual ones too.
The only other legitimate monarchy that I know of would be the previous monarchy of France. They were legitimate and fulfilled both conditions outlined above.
Saint King Louis IX, defender of the faith, crusader, and loyal Catholic ruler of France.
However, that monarchy and the lineage have been destroyed ever since France rejected their monarchy.
When a monarchy is legitimate, ie ordained by God, no one can destroy that monarchy or bring it down. The monarchy remains under God’s protection from all outside threats. The only people who can destroy a monarchy are the people under the monarchy itself, when they reject God and reject His monarchy.
And as you can see over the years, the consequences of not having the spiritual protections from a monarchy have been very dire on France. France has descended into chaos; family and marriage values have been decimated. See HERE.
Now America used to be under British rule, and while I totally get that you wanted to govern yourselves, didn’t want to pay taxes etc etc, I do not think you should have rejected the monarchy either.
You could still have your own rules, and govern your own way, but still be under the protection, graces, benefits and blessings of the legitimate monarchy of the UK, the way countries like Canada and Australia are.
And it is sad that back then you did not want to pay taxes to the British monarchy, but now, your taxes are being sent in high numbers to fund outside countries, and wars abroad, at the expense of your own citizens.
Anyway. From the trans movement with its chokehold on American families, ridiculous restrictions on gas cookers now, and many other atrocities, I sense that America is on the brink of a major overhaul.
Things cannot continue the way they are if America is to survive; America will either plunge completely into self-destruction or it will be reborn in a stronger form.
There are already several large groups of America that want a monarchy back as it sits right in their spirit; it is the spirit of God Himself guiding those desires even if they do not understand the full spiritual implications and benefits of being under a monarchy.
Hence, we see many prominent Catholics like Dr. Taylor Marshall now displaying interest in a monarchy system.
As America gets transformed over the next few years, I hope that for her next chapter of revolutionary change, she chooses right: you can still keep your democratic government, but for your sake, align yourselves with a legitimate monarchy.
Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom, pray for us!
For God, King and Country!!

American here. The whole thing about the taxes is slightly inaccurate. The issue wasn’t the taxes themselves; the issue was that we had no voice in Parliament to discuss the taxes being placed on us. This is referred to as taxation without representation. You still make good points in this article though!

Can the United States have a legitimate monarchy without being a part of the commonwealth? Could France restore its monarchy? Could any other European countries have legitimate monarchies?
I think so. As long the conditions for legitimacy are met. Otherwise, it won’t be real ie with God’s hand on it.
It will be very difficult, though, cos any bloodline descendants probably died away when those countries rejected monarchy.
America is a country of immigrants. It real roots are in the Indian Americans and they had no monarchy. So any monarchy that America finds will still be genetically tied to Britain as the Americans came from Europe. Your forefathers are Europeans and that means any genetic bloodline for monarchy will come from Europe. It’s strange to see such anti British, anti Europe sentiments in Americans; it’s like rejecting your own ancestry.
I sent an email.
Thank you for this article…
