Absolute and Parliamentary Monarchies vary greatly.


An absolute monarchy is a form of government in which the monarch has the power to rule his/her land and citizens freely with no type of rules, regulations, or restraints. There is no constitution or body of law, meaning the monarch has total power.


A parliamentary monarchy, also known as a constitutional monarchy, where a constituional system recognizes an elected or hereditary monarch as head of state. This differs from an absolute monarchy in that the monarch does not have complete rule over the lands and citizens, he/she may even be more of a "figure-head" than a true political figure.
