A monarchy is a government where the head of government is an hereditary king or queen (monarch). This is different from a constitutional monarchy, where the head of government might be a prime minister, and head of state is reserved to the monarch. A monarchy is a country ruled by a monarch, a h…ead of state with supreme power, who holds the title until death or voluntary abdication. There can be different types. An Absolute Monarch is ungoverned by any laws, and can technically do whatever he or she wants, though in practice will still be influenced by other groups under him. A constitutional Monarch acts as monarch within the guidelines of a constitution. Qatar and Saudi Arabia are two examples of absolute monarchies, Japan and the United Kingdom are examples of constitutional monarchies.

It depends who the Monarch is! as the Bible phrase has it- Kings Go Forth and under the pressures of wars or national emergency- the need to tightly hand on to power frequently goes towards absolute-not limited monarchy. The concept of a Constitutional monarchy theoretically divides the powers up be…tween the ruling monarch, and the cabinet ministers- or privy council as it is called in Britain ( nothing to do with public, oh well)- and the Parliament. Sometimes you could have all these features and still be under-the-gun, or sword monarchism. Czarist Russia had a sort of parliament called the Duma. The Duma was the Lower house- lilke the Congress" house of representatiives, and the Presidium was like the senate. Most Presidium members were nobles or high officers of the Armed forces - The Communists changed the names- but accepted and retained the two-house concept in their Soviet form of Federalism. (MORE)
A parliamentary monarchy is a system of government where the executive branch is headed by strong monarch. An example of this is the Kingdom of Jordan where the king is quite powerful and plays a role in the actual governance of the country. Pretend for a moment that the President of the United Stat…es was not an elected but hereditary seat of power constituting both roles of head of state and head of government. A constitutional monarchy, such as that in the United Kingdom, is comprised of a monarch who is more a figurehead and apolitical. Great pains are taken to ensure the neutrality of the monarch. The monarch's primary role is to be a symbol of unity for the country. The prime minister of the United Kingdom is head of government and carries out the daily tasks of governing. (MORE)
