Kingdom or Republic?
- question of establishing a monarchy in Kanjor developed during the 2th century, although on all occasions it was soundly defeated
- subsequently, the nation from this point forward was split not ideologically but by their support for the Monarchy or republicanism, although often ideological alliances developed between these two camps. Royalists became associated with the liberal middle-classes and a less state-driven economy, while the Republicans tended to be sympathetic to communism and the maintenance of the role of the State.
- era seen as a constant battle between two factions, primarily the Royalists and the Communists. The Royalists ceased to exist as an electoral force as of 2941, signalling the beginning of the age of Republican Consensus and the fall of the monarchist idea from fashion.

Queen Evylin 4666-4684
Queen Evylin was supported by Nouvelle Union Gauche/Socialiste and led the nation with leftwing policy reforms that were often at odds with the populace. She was succeeded by King Louis IV in 4684 upon the dissolving of the Nouvelle Union Gauche/Socialiste and the rise of the Parti royal démocrate.
King Louis IV 4684-4699
King Louis IV enjoyed the support of the Parti royal démocrate until 4690. Nouvelle Union Gauche/Socialiste would resurface in 4692 creating an uneasy relationship until his death in 4699
King Charles II 4699-4723
King Charles II was supported by the Nouvelle Union Gauche/Socialiste until 4704 and then became an absolute monarch. In 4723, Charles II was overthrown by the Le Congrès du Peuple upon the dissolving of the Nouvelle Union Gauche/Socialiste. Kanjor would remain a republic for the next 87 years.
Le Congrès du Peuple transformed Kajor with a flurry of legal reforms and treaty ratifications opening Kanjor up to the rest of the world. In 4735, the regions of La Tondelle (Est), La Tondelle (Ouest), and Oléri were renamed to La Tondelle, Silliers, and Val-de-Azur. The cities of Oustres, Mienau, Les Palais, and Venfors were renamed to Savigny, Picard, Le Cher-Comte, and Ile-de-Canrillaise. The ambitious domestic and foreign policy agenda of Le Congrès du Peuple came to an end in 4740 when the party officially dissolved. For the next 20 years, the Parti Populaire Unifié and the Parti Libéral Fédéraliste would compete for power until 4760s. The En Avant Ensemble would establish Kanjor as a short-lived socialist republic from 4786-4794. The Parti Urbain would restore the federal republic and rule until 4802. After a series of one-party administrations, the republic finally fell in 4810 to the monarchists.
King Louis VI 4810-4853
The Monarchy was restored to Kanjor in 4810 under the leadership of the Front Nouveau Canrillaise. King Louis VI, of House of Orléans-Vasser would reign as HOS from 4810 to his death in 4853 upon being succeeded by his son, Philippe VI. King Louis VI would enjoy one-party rule until 4832. He would then rule as absolute monarch until 4847 when the Les Communautaristes took power. However, this would be short-lived and, again, King Louis would reign as absolute monarch until his death in 4853.
King Philippe VI 4853-4876
Philippe VI of House of Orléans-Vasser succeeded Louis VI in 4853 and was suppported by the Parti Royal Democrate until 4866 and then ruled Kanjor as an absolute monarch until his overthrow in 4876. Philippe VI was invited to rule Alduria in 4860 and is still the ruling monarch to this day. He was also the monarch of Lourenne from 4856-4874. From 4860-4874, he was considered the undisputed Canrillaise Emperor. For reasons unknown, his power quickly collapsed in Lourenne and Kanjor in the 4870s ending the Canrillaise Empire.
King Robert I 4876-Present
In 4876, the House of Alarie under Robert and his brother, Stanly, took advantage of the power vacuum left behind by the Parti Royal Démocrate's exit, the ruling party since 4866. In May 4876, Stanly Alarie won the governor-general election and his party, the Loyaliste Royaliste Parti, won 72% of the vote. In January 4877, Robert I was made King of Kanjor in a bloodless revolution that saw the overthrow of Philippe VI of the House of Orléans-Vasser. King Robert I also enjoyed support from the Silverbug Shareholders, a loyal opposition party.
