Anarcho-Monarchism might seem like the ultimate contradiction.

Philosophically speaking, anarchism has a strong anti-democratic tradition that, far from seeing anarchism as being democracy carried to its logical conclusion, is actually far closer to being instead aristocracy universalised. Monarchy can be reinvented as a concept to serve a distinctively libertarian ethos, if one can see in the monarch a symbol of sovereignty that is reflected in the absolute sovereignty of the free individual. The word 'king' is derived from the word 'kin' - so kingship denotes kinship, the king or queen being a symbolic guardian of the people's freedom and self-determination. Thus handed down generation to generation, the monarch carries the genetic inheritance of the people in a bond of mutual co-inherence.

A political system that falls under anarcho-capitalism, of which a private land owner the 'King' acts as a landlord, renting out land to citizens via a voluntary contract with certain conditions similar to that of a set of laws. In anarcho-monarchism, the 'citizens' transfer the ownership rights of all things they produce or have to the 'King' but are granted usage rights to those things with certain amounts possibly taken away as 'taxation' according to the citizenship contract.

An anarcho-monarchy is not a government as it is not a monopoly on aggression(initiation of force). All actions taken by a 'King' in an anarcho-monarchy are fully consensual.
"I follow anarcho-monarchism as if government ever gets abolished and anarcho-capitalism is established, I will make myself a king over my land"
