The Monarchy of Demirelia is the institution that compromises the Monarch of the Kingdom of Demirelia and the entire Royal Family. The constitutional title that the monarchs holds - King for males and Queen for females. The current monarch of Demirelia is Patrick I since 30 June 2016.

Demirelia was established in October 2015 as a federal republic. The republic however would be dissolved in December that year and the state transformed into an empire. Following the federalisation of Abelden, where Demirelia joined as a federal state on 30 June, it has been a kingdom and has therefore since become one of the 6 federal monarchies.

Succession

The House of Renwick is the ruling house of Demirelia operating under a system of absolute primogeniture.
