A monarch is the sole political ruler of a country.
Albion has had several times where it was ruled by a monarch, primarily during the Old Kingdom, when it was ruled by a line of kings known as Archons. Monarchs wielding true political power died with the Old Kingdom, although during the Age of Enlightenment, the title may have been granted to an individual who purchased a vast amount of property in the country. However, this was merely a title to denote celebrity status. The monarchy in Albion was restored with the formation of the Kingdom of Albion, founded by the Hero of Bowerstone. Logan assumed the throne after the Hero of Bowerstone died, but lost the throne to his sibling, the Hero of Brightwall, after they orchestrated a revolution to overthrow the tyrannical Logan.
Monarchy is not only practiced in Albion. Ten years after the defeat of the Crawler, the eastern lands of Samarkand are ruled by a monarch known only as the Empress. In addition, an unknown king rules in another country far from the pastoral lands of Albion.
- Monarch comes from the Ancient Greek language, meaning 'single ruler'.
- The Title "King" or "Queen" can be earned in Fable II by buying all the real estate in Albion.
