The monarchy of Florenia, commonly referred to as the Florenian monarchy or, as the legal institution, the Crown, is the constitutional monarchy of the Kingdom of Florenia. Eran of Florenia has reigned as monarch since Florenia's foundation on 22 April 2011. The monarch has many responsibilities, the most important of which is granting royal assent to all Acts of Florenian Parliament so that they may become law. The monarch's primary role as conceived of upon independence was as a symbol of national unity and a non-affiliated leader of the nation.

On 25 November 2016, Eran issued the November Declaration, a decree in which he claimed temporary powers and suspended Parliament. He also assumed the style of His Majesty, doing away with the word Royal. Eran then ruled with nearly limitless power, though only exercised it on the advice of his ministers, until the adoption of the Resolution on Florenian Government following a referendum in April 2021. Under the new system of government the Resolution established, the Crown maintains many prerogative powers but is bound by constitutional conventions and a direct democratic Parliament possessing legislative supremacy. Therefore, Eran continues to act only on the advice of the government, now represented by the Council of State.

Line of succession

The line of succession to the Throne of Florenia is slightly more complicated and different from most other royal lines of succession. First in line is The Prince Nathan, the eldest son of the King, who is followed, as per usual, by his brothers, uncle, aunt, and cousins. However, after all of the members of the king's immediate family, Queen Jane's father, The Most Hon Earl Fialko, continues the line of succession, followed by the Queen's immediate family. The line of succession is as follows:
