The Monarch of Essexia is whoever holds the title or occupation as the ceremonial monarch. The Monarch is the ceremonial figurehead of all of the Commonwealth of Essexia, and is therefore one of the most highly respected figures in Essexia.

The first and current Monarch is His Majesty Emperor Terry I of Essexia, who has held the title since the 26th of December 2017. The Emperor can designate roles to civilians, although tends to allow free will in this sense. The Emperor can also empower citizens to become First Lord of the Treasury, who is head of the Royal Bank of Essexia and controls the finances of the Commonwealth, or a Lord, who holds a place in the Parliament of Essexia.

On the 16th of September 2018, a revolution by the Federal Senate caused the King to be with no power, until he was invited into the Federation of Essexia, which (on the 19th of September) became the Commonwealth of Essexia. The Treaty of Chelmsford which formed the new nation also established Emperor Terry as the ceremonial monarch, but did not respect the title of Princess.

The Danbury Conference on the 17th June 2019 decided that the King's title should become 'Emperor', and the appropriate changes were made to documents and MicroWiki pages on the 19th.
