Historically, sometimes a monarchy would end and the throne/title would be given to a neighboring king, so that the person would be the ruler of two kingdoms. Note, the two kingdom would NOT be merged into one “country”. I am suggesting that every 50 to 500 years that there be the opportunity for a ...

Another form of government: oligarchy?

Listening to one of my favorite podcasts during my commute (Tides of History), the author mentions the form of government for the northern Italian cities just before the Black Plague arrives, as being a oligarchies, where each city is dominated by several families. The cities he mentioned were Flore...
