A constitutional monarchy is any system of government in which a monarch is head of state and/or government, but his or her duties and powers are formally limited and defined by written or unwritten laws (usually, a constitution). Constitutional monarchy should therefore be distinguished from absolute monarchy, in which the power of the monarch is in theory unlimited.
Types of Constitutional Monarchy
The actual role of the monarch in constitutional monarchies varies widely in theory and practice. In some countries, the monarch is purely a symbolic figure with no real influence over the workings of the government. Such countries may be democracies, or dictatorships in which the dictator is not the monarch. At the other extreme, some constitutional monarchs have as much real power as absolute monarchs, the only difference being that this power is delineated by laws or a constitution which are in some sense "above" the monarch.
