About This Quiz
A monarch is defined as "the sovereign head of state in a type of government, dynasty or state". They are able to exercise the highest authority and power in the country, often helping in the lawmaking process. A monarch usually inherits the right to be the head of state, but there have also been occasions where people have married into the family and others by winning wars. There are also monarchs which are able to rule over multiple monarchies at the same time.
A monarch's title can range from king, queen, prince and princess to emperor and empress and archduke, grand duke and duchess to sultan and sheik. In today's society, the monarchs may not possess the same power that they once did and titles are usually used as a form of respect, but most of them do have a role in the affairs of the government.
