About Us

Our Purpose

The institution of monarchy embodies the unification between elements of tradition and modern practices of governance. The prominence of the various royal families around the world is something to truly behold. In fact, there are 26 different royal families globally who reign over 43 countries today. On this website, we will be exploring the lives and influence of some of these prominent dynasties, and how they have evolved to meet modernity and provide balance with the cultural customs of their nations. But, most importantly, we will examine how the continued existence of monarchs to this day provides an important continuity in ever changing times.

The notion of monarchy arose as a structure of governance, because of its efficiency in governing large populations across sprawling domains. The oldest recorded monarchy dates to Ancient Egypt, which provides insight into some of our deepest held societal structures and customs. While the kings and queens of the past allow us to reflect on our modern infrastructures, the evolution of royal families today still holds significant influence in guiding and unifying nations. In the world presently, many different types of royal families exist. From purely symbolic to reigning supreme, the modern-day monarchy represents a fascinating network of cultural and political value. Despite the evolution of their roles from their historic beginnings, many monarchs still hold a huge symbolic worth to the people they lead.

Contrary to the belief held by some that royal families are antiquated relics, their actions in both past and present times are worth revisiting. This website intends to preserve the legacy of monarchies in history, as well as highlight the impact and actions of the world’s contemporary Royals. To recognize why monarchies prevail and are relevant to the 21st century, it is important to note their merit on our daily lives. Monarchs provide a relevant touchstone of shared loyalty that can unite diverse ethnic and social groups within a nation. Royals also form a significant equalizer in establishing the political landscape of regions, so that incremental rather than extreme change is encouraged. Moreover, royal families represent an essential bridge in the dividing line between classical values and our contemporary world. Similarly to previous eras, monarchy, wherever it is found, will exhibit itself as a vital and beneficial cultural and political institution.

In light of the meaningful influence that monarchy has on both historical and present-day society, it is no wonder that our collective nostalgia for these institutions continues to reign. That is why, this website will compile content to acknowledge and relish the lives and traditions of royalty all over the world. Through this we hope to bring all those that access this site and that identity with this fandom, comprehensive observations that will enlighten readers on the prolific world of global royalty.

The contemporary British royal family has grown many branches in its family tree since the beginning of the Windsor era. While those in the main line of succession have captured the attention of avid royalists globally, the little-known branches of this tree are also worth review.
