Absolute Monarchs

Absolute Monarchs

An absolute monarch is a king or a queen who held all the power within their states boundaries. Absolute monarchs believe in divine right, the idea that God created the monarchy and the monarch acted as Gods representative on earth. An absolute monarch answered only to God, not to his or her subjects. The goal of absolute monarchs was to free themselves from the limitations imposed by the nobility and by representative bodies such as Parliament.
