Stop being dumb, the monarchs or history weren't benevolent rulers as you like to paint them. They waged war, taxed heavily, and gave handouts to their friends.
Now what is the verdict on kings by someone who lived in a time filled with them?
“kings are carnivorous, rapacious, a brigand, a destroyer, solitary, hated by all, a pest to all…”
