A monarchy is a form of government in which the monarch has absolute power. Nearly all medieval nations were monarchies, including England, Normandy, and many others.

In a monarchy, the monarch may choose to give power to other nobles, and while this was often the case, this was not strictly required of a monarch. He (or, in rare cases, she) had the sole authority to approve laws, declare war, and other similar duties.
