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.

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

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.

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?

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.

God save the Queen - probably the best Queen in the world (or at least top 3)
