Age of Monarchs The age of monarchs is also referred to as the Age  Absolutism .   Absolutism is a type of government where the  power of the crown is unchecked.  The Ruler has absolute  authority and the subjects have absolute loyalty. The Nation States  have a strong central government  during  the Age of Monarchs where the monarch holds supreme  power.  In an absolute monarchy the monarch is the central  government.  In the movement to Absolute Monarchy away  from feudalism , power moved from the regional  governments of the feudal estates and the nobles, to the  central government the Absolute Monarch .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
