Famous quotes containing the words monarchy of and/or monarchy:

    Here lies a King that ruled as he thought fit
    The universal monarchy of wit;
    Here lies two flamens, and both those the best,
    Apollo’s first, at last the true God’s priest.
    Thomas Carew (1589–1639)

    The Sovereign has, under a constitutional monarchy such as ours, three rights—the right to be consulted, the right to encourage, the right to warn. And a king of great sense and sagacity would want no others.
    Walter Bagehot (1826–1877)
