How Many Countries are there still have a ruling monarchy?

From the beginning of the humanity people have been living with together and in almost all periods of the time in humanity they have rules in order to regulate their lives from the point of social life, politic life, daily life and another fields of their lives.

And again in the history of the humanity in the ruling of the communities there are different types of regimes and thought the history people have been ruled by these different regimes. When we look at the history of the humanity it can be said that maybe one of the most popular and one of the most widespread type of regime is monarchy. Now we are going to analyze the regime of monarchy. Monarchy is the regime that a ruler’s in the management to the whole country and it can be said that it is for the another name for the sultanate. In the regime of the Monarchy that person is the owner of the country and he or she holds this authority on his or her hand until he or she will die and after that person die his or her son takes the authority. In the history we can see lots of great empires that are ruled with monarchy like Ottoman Empire, Byzantium Empire and there are lots of others. And on the other hand in some types of monarchies the kings or the people who have the authority claim that they are taking their power from the God and the people who are living in that country or in that empire are respecting and accepting this belief.
