The monarchy of Arlandica or Arlandican monarchy, whose monarch is referred to as the king of Arlandica (Cebuano: Hari sa Arlandika), is the head of state and government of Arlandica, and commander-in-chief of the Civil Guard.

Arlandica follows a constitutional and hereditary monarchy, with the monarch serving as both the head of state and government. The position of monarch is inherited within the royal family, with the eldest child, the crown prince or crown princess, becoming the heir apparent. The monarch wields executive and judicial powers.

Jerold I currently holds the position of monarch in Arlandica, having occupied the role since the monarchy's establishment. Additionally, they serve as a unifying figure for the kingdom, contributing to the cultivation of a shared national identity and pride among its citizens.


Before the creation of monarchy and his coronation as the monarch, Jerold I was the supreme leader of the Federal Democratic Republic of Arland or FDRA (now known as Kingdom of Arlandica) from April 20, 2020 to December 26, 2020. The government is supposed to be federal, but it is unitary personalist dictatorship in practice. Arlandica experienced political instability. It has no constitution since all of the power is vested by Jerold himself. Several attempts have been initiated by the opposition forces and other critics to overthrow him out of power, but Jerold ended up coronated as the monarch and abolished the republican form of government. Since its foundation, Jerold I has been the head of state and government of the country.

Powers and duties

According to the constitution, the Monarch holds sole prerogative over the following responsibilities:

The monarch wields both executive and judicial powers, while the parliament exercises legislative powers. Parliament members, led by its president, propose bills that are submitted to the monarch for approval or rejection. Additionally, the Parliament advices the monarch on its actions in the country.

The monarch possesses the right to utilize "Rule by decree" as a governance style if they choose to proclaim it. In the event of a national emergency, all government powers are vested in the monarch.

During periods when the monarch is occupied or unable to fulfill their duties, the heir apparent, whether it's the Crown Prince or Crown Princess, is authorized to temporarily exercise the monarch's powers.

The working place of the monarch within the royal family's residence is known as "His Majesty's Office" (alternatively, "Her Majesty's Office" when the Arlandican monarch is female).

Line of succession

Crown Princess Jeanne, the heir apparent of the monarch.

Arlandica has a well-established line of succession that follows the principle of absolute primogeniture. According to the 2022 Arlandican constitution, the eldest sibling or eldest child of the monarch, irrespective of their gender, will automatically become the Heir apparent to the throne. This means that the royal heir's gender does not play a role in determining their position in the line of succession, and their eligibility is solely based on their seniority in terms of birth order. This system of succession ensures that the most capable and qualified candidate takes the throne. It eliminates any potential gender biases that may have existed in previous systems and promotes equality and fairness.

Currently, Jeanne is declared as the heir apparent of the monarch, since she is currently in the first in line of succession. She is the younger sister of Jerold I. This designation may change if Jerold I has his first biological child.
