Italy along with the rest of Europe does have a royal family or did. The rule of the House of Savoy ended with the 1946 referendum by which Italians chose the republic as the form of state thus officially ending feudalism in Italy. Their is an effort to normalize the relations with the former Royal family and allow them to perform a non-official and non-governmental public role which they already do in relation to the undoing the mechanisms of supression by developing and raising the consciousness of the Italian people and defending the standing of Italian people at home and around the world.
The Etruscan political system was a monarchy removed by the Romans until the Claudio-Julians ended the republic and implemented a monarchy. Fragmented and destroyed Europe after the empire leads to Charlemagne and away from Rome. The European royal families are all interbreeding to help furnish a European wide grip on power. Similarly the position of Pontifex Maximus was the religious head of Ancient Rome, unified by Julius Caesar as he sought to consolidate concentrate all power into unto himself. After the fall of the empire Vae victis and the art of defence is lost on Pontifex Maximus who is aghast at all things. Historically it shifts from a political position to a religious position depending on the character of the pope.
