Constitutional Monarchy....


Ad Honorem

Briefly after the fall of the Qing Dynasty and before the glory of the Republic, there was a brief suggestion of having a constiutional monarchy... how would it work? would it actually work... would it continue to the modern day?

I don't think it could have worked. I think after the collapse of the Qing, there was just too much vulnerability and instability politically for people to sit down and hammer out a solid constitution. The opportunity to seize power in the political vacuum was fleeting and people like Sun Yat-Sen, Chiang Kai-shek et al. realized this. Thus emerged the Republic of China.
