Interesting -- Pope Francis is the sovereign of one of these, and also the boss of a sovereign of another one of these (Andorra)

Does Andorra count as a monarchy since it has two equal heads of state? "Monarchy" implies one.

And both of them are elected!

Only one of them is elected (the French President). The other one is not (the Spanish King).

@HBK97 the second co-prince is the Bishop of Urgell, not the King of Spain

Both of them might be elected but not by the people of Andorra which is probably one of the biggest reasons why it still considered a monarchy.

Andorra is not a "pure" monarchy but I'm sure it still counts, as it is a parliamentary monarchy.

I think DrWatson was just wondering if it fitted in this category because there are two co-princes and it's therefore a form of diarchy instead of monarchy.

I agree. Since the description explicitly states "technically speaking", Andorra should not be there as it's a diarchy, which can be considered an oligarchy, but for sure not a monarchy, as there is no single head of state.

Certainly does. I think Andorra may be the only remaining dyarchy in the world - not a monarchy. Pedantic I realise, but that's kind of what this website is about :-)

The Pope counts as a monarch? Hhhmmmmmm

Why not? He fits the definition. No need to be a royal heir.

Elected for life - that's better than the king of Malaysia.

Elected for life. Would that make him a benevolent dictator?

The pope is a separate title from the king of Vatican City, I believe, as, possibly, is the title of Pontifex Maximus. They are just always held by the same person, who is generally referred to by his role as the pope of the Roman Catholic church

Never would have guessed Vatican City, but fortunately it is the only European country that comes after the UK alphabetically, so it was implied by the UK being the second to last answer. :-)

Why the word "still", in the title? It's very suggestive, even though I fully recognize that the number of monarchies is less than a few centuries ago.

Presumably the question writer does not approve of Monarchies and thought it correct to use 'still' in a dismissive or condescending manner.

Come on. Monarchy and theocracy are pretty well known to be different, just because pope is elected for life, doesn't make him "technically" a king.
