Divine right is one of many excuses used by monarchs of Europe to retain thier positions of power. It was claimed that God himself put them there. Of course, the intellectuals of the day pointed out that monarchies are formed from the most violent band of thugs, made by man, not God.
Divine right has not been used by the British monarchy for several hundred years.
