An American Monarchy - Flags by Regicollis An American Monarchy - Flags by Regicollis
What if the United States had been a monarchy instead of a republic? The concept is not completely outlandish. After all monarchy was the default form of government back when the United States seceded from British rule. There was also plans to offer the Prussian prince Henry the throne.

Had the continental congress elected a king the title is not unlikely to have been changed to emperor, once the nation grew westwards.

This is how the flags of such an empire could have looked like.

News flash, if it wasn't a monarchy before, it is now.  Certainly it has been an oligarchy from WWI up until the accession of our current monarch/figurehead.

Accept nothing about the US even resembles a monarchy at all. An oligarchy, yes (and we were founded as an oligarchy, and we've been shifting back and forth since our founding) but not a monarchy. We don't have a king, or a dictator. We are a republic by definition, and not even close to a monarchy. 

I know, it's hard to believe that we actually have elections and the president must still abide by congressional legislation.
