The death of Louis XVI on the scaffold in 1793 did not mark the beginning of the
end of monarchy. What followed was a Long Nineteenth Century during which
monarchical systems continued to be politically and culturally dominant both in
Europe and beyond. They shaped political cultures and became a reference point
for debates on constitutional government as well as for understandings of political
liberalism. Within multinational settin
gs monarchy offered an alternative to
centralised national states. Not even the cataclysms of the twentieth century could
wipe monarchy completely off the political, mental and emotional maps.

Palgrave Studies in Modern Monarchy reflects the vibrancy of research into this topic
by bringing together monographs and edited collections exploring the history of
monarchy in Europe and the world in the period after t
he end of the ancien régime.
Committed to a scholarly approach to the royal past, the series is open in terms of
geographical and thematic coverage, welcoming studies examining any aspect of any
part of the modern monarchical world.
