Contrary to popular belief, by all objective observable criteria, Monarchy has been a resounding success. Recorded history makes it evident, that Monarchy has been the predominant form of governing on Earth since at least 3,000BC. What evidence is there that humans at large are so much more advanced, and intelligent than all of humans of the past? If Monarchy was such a menace to the Earth, would it have remained so dominant a force? Liberal democracy is a mere speck, in comparison.

For example, beginning with the unification of upper and lower Egypt, monarchy led to nearly three millennia of stability since 3150 BC. Certainly, it was developed in pre-historic times, flourished in the Greek Bronze Age, in Rome between 700 and 500 BC, The Chinese states, and early medieval Western Europe. The worlds greatest cultures and institutions, in every period, were cultivated and shaped by the Royal dynasties. Even the Nubian Kingdom in Africa produced periods of continuous stability, one lasting for at least 900 years. Until the pernicious lies wreaked chaos in England, the feudal Monarchs also produced stability. There is no doubt that Monarchy built great things! As pointed out at Unqualified Reservations, the world’s most beautiful and impressive architecture were built under the royals’ watch. One need only to compare the age of the Monarchs, to the age that followed. The rise of popular government, whose various expressions fought for dominance, destroying much of the cultures they consumed, and leading to the most bloodshed in the planet’s history.

Why exactly was Monarchy so successful? First and foremost, it is a natural reflection on Earth, of the hierarchy of Heaven. The Christian teaching of man, being created in the image and likeness of God, also applies to the order of civilization. Because mankind is created in His image, the most ideal form of government is that, of as a single head. Just as the father is the head of the family, so the King is the head of nation. Under a monarchial system, people are more inclined to reverently view the monarch as a dear relative, with a healthy blend of fear and adoration.
