The King of Cambodia (Khmer: ព្រះមហាក្សត្រនៃព្រះរាជាណាចក្រកម្ពុជា) is the head of state of the Kingdom of Cambodia. The King's power is limited to that of a symbolic figurehead to whom people are to give love and respect. The monarch also represents peace, stability, and prosperity to the Khmer people. The King of Cambodia is an elected monarch, making Cambodia one of the few elected monarchies of the world. The king is elected for life from among the members of the royal family who are at least 30 years old by the Royal Council of the Throne which consists of several senior elected and religious figures.
