Royalist

For other uses, see Royalist (disambiguation).

A royalist supports a particular monarch as head of state for a particular kingdom, or of a particular dynastic claim. In the abstract, this position is royalism. It is distinct from monarchism, which advocates a monarchical system of government, but not necessarily a particular monarch. Most often, the term royalist is applied to a supporter of a current regime or one that has been recently overthrown to form a republic.

In the United Kingdom today, the term is almost indistinguishable from "monarchist," because there are no significant rival claimants to the throne. Conversely, in 19th-century France, a royalist might be either a Legitimist, Bonapartist, or an Orléanist, all being monarchists.

  • The Johor Royalists Club (or 柔佛保皇党) is a non-governmental organization which was founded in the State of Johor, within the Federation of Malaysia, on 23 March 2015. Its objectives are to support the monarchy of Johor; to create awareness of the heritage of the monarchy of Johor; and to close up racial relations through the monarchy of Johor. Its membership is open to pure Johoreans (or Anak Jati Johor) who, and both of whose parents, were born in Johor, and are loyal to the Sultan of Johor. It operates in the form of a people's congress, and has a standing committee to manage the day-to-day affairs.[2]
