The predecessor to the League was the Monarchist League, a British organization founded in 1943. Originally founded as a semi-chivalric body, it morphed into a pressure and support group over the following decades. By 1983, it had become the largest of such groups, though it had been somewhat dormant for a couple of years.
Still, it published its own magazine, "The Monarchist," as often as possible, normally more than once a year. Members, even during the dormant period, still engaged in public debates on behalf of the League. For many years a large youth wing was maintained.
But, when the bombs hit on Doomsday, the League was effectively snuffed out of existence - it, and its members, were based in central London. While several branches initially survived, and a few affiliated groups in other nations managed to weather the blasts to some degree, the Monarchist League died in the flames.
Immediately following Doomsday, the surviving remnants of the British monarchy moved to the Isle of Wight. The Queen and Prince Phillip, having been successfully, though barely, evacuated from Windsor before any blasts struck, relocated to Osborne House, where they and much of the staff they had evacuated from Windsor with would perish from radiation sickness in 1984. Ironically, had they remained behind, they would have lived through the event - Windsor Castle and its environs did not get hit, and under the Constable and Governor of Windsor Castle, Sir John Grandy, it survived the chaos, later joining the Celtic Alliance as New London.
But, long before their deaths, Prince Andrew arrived at the island, safe and sound aboard the HMS Invincible. As the only surviving son of the Queen - both his older and younger brothers had perished in the attacks, in London and Cambridge - this left him the heir, and following the death of his mother, King.
During this time, surviving elements of the military both kept refugees from overwhelming the island, and scavenged for supplies. The captain of the Invincible, Nicholas Hill-Norton, played a major role in coordinating these actions.
Over the course of these actions, the troops were also told to keep and eye out for any surviving members of government that had escaped the blasts, along with making a point of checking if any of the more local ones still remained at their homes. Several people who were to prove principle to the formation of the Kingdom of New Britain, and others to the formation of the state of Southern England, were brought to the island this way. Two of those found would be the MP for Worthing, Terence Higgins, later the founder of Southern England and John Fieldhouse, the First Sea Lord, later the first Prime Minister of New Britain.
Key for the future League, however, was the evacuation of Captain Hill-Norton's father, Peter Hill-Norton, Baron Hill-Norton, a member of the House of Lords, and former Chief of the Defence Staff, from his home at Hyde.
The Baron left with the soldiers, and moved to the island, where he helped organize the island, and became one of the chief advisers to King Andrew. He was one of the advocates for the move to South Africa, as well, viewing it as a needed secure base to reclaim and rebuild the British Isles in safety. He would arrive in Port Elizabeth with the King in 1986 and aid him in setting up the government.
By the end of 1987, with the government now established in the city and environs, the Baron announced his retirement from active life once again, and took up his position in the House of Lords. At this time, he was also named an Earl in the peerage for his actions.
However, he soon became concerned by dissent to the idea of a monarchy and reports from Australia - along with the knowledge that little was being done to win over those who opposed the concept. Yet no such organization had survived the move to Southern Africa, or been founded as of yet.
Calling in the House of Lords for something to be done did little - there was little funds or will for such a movement in Parliament.
So, he took matters into his own hands. Along with his son, several like-minded individuals and the few members of the old Monarchist League that had survived Doomsday and made the voyage to Africa, he formed a new organization in early 1989 - the World Monarchist League. The goal of which was to educate the citizens on the value of monarchy, to encourage those in politics to support the Crown, and to promote the cause of monarchs worldwide.
The Earl would retire from his position in charge of the League in the summer of 1992, citing his age. His son would be unanimously voted by the Board of Directors as the new Chairman. Earl Hill-Norton would pass on in the spring of 2004, with his son inheriting the earldom.
Early on, the situation was dire for the organization, as funding proved to be a major challenge - for the first few years of its existence, it had to be funded out-of-pocket by Hill-Norton. On top of that, elements of the local population still resented the new government somewhat, considering it to just be another example of colonialism by whites.
The Earl, along with his son and the other members of the organization, hosted many public audiences throughout the early years, extolling the virtues of monarchy, condemning the former South African government, reminding the citizens that the Crown had opposed the concept of apartheid and that the British government had, overall, condemned it - and that it was a republic that had instituted the policies they so reviled. Key in these speeches was that had the British Crown been involved, the policies would never have happened - and under King Andrew and his descendants, never would.
Slowly, support for the Crown grew among the native South Africans. The concept that the King could refuse any racist legislation that a future Parliament passed, and that the House of Lords would make such legislation difficult at best to pass anyway, greatly appealed to the black and colored populations, while the Anglo-Africans could in many ways tolerate the concept.
Still, this education campaign would be busy for years to come, given the vast number of South Africans that had little to no concept of a monarchy, having been born after the nation turned into a republic. The arrival of large numbers of refugees from India at this time only made it more difficult.
In 1992, shortly before the Earl stepped down, solid contact was re-established between the North and South for the first time since the war - previously, only tiny spurts of anything had come through outside of a few regions. It also gave new openings for the League to expand overseas.
During its first three years of existence, amid its speaker tours and public lectures in New Britain, the League managed to scrape together the funds to start its international expansion. As a result, in 1991, they sent two of their members on overseas trips. One of them went to Australia and New Zealand, to look into the old Monarchist League branches there, and either restart them or try to affiliate with them again. The other member was sent to the Caribbean, to the members of the East Caribbean Federation, some of whom still recognized the monarchy in some form. to establish a new branch there - they were to start one in Saint Helena on the way, as well, to which someone would be sent at a later date.
The branches in Oceania would be determined to have shrunk greatly in number, despite their knowledge of Andrew's survival, but not impossible to salvage. These branches joined together to form the Oceanic Monarchist League, and affiliated themselves to the WML.
The trip to the Caribbean went even better - their representative, along with some diplomatic officials from New Britain, met with the leaders of the local governments, who supported their overall goals. Because of this, they were able to obtain some funding for a local office, which they established on the island of Anguilla in early 1992.
Following contact in 1992, the League found itself with a lot more ground to cover, and with not enough funds yet again. However, the Earl, faced with both old age and this new dilemma, resigned his position in favor of his son. Nicholas, having a better connection to the king, was able to convince Andrew to get the government to give them some funding, which his father had been unable to do. This would help greatly with the needed expansion, and take some of the financial burden of the League off the Hill-Norton family.
In 1991-1992, the voyage of the USS Benjamin Franklin around the world, specifically to investigate the situation in North America, Asia, and Europe, proved a great success - it put the governments of the south into contact once again with survivors in the north, and discovered that many pockets of civilization remained intact, even in harder hit areas such as the former United Kingdom.
With this news, New Britain sent out diplomatic missions to several of these nations, most notably to Canada, Victoria, and the British Isles. Representatives of the League accompanied these missions, at the behest of the Crown. Their goal, in addition to setting up new branches and forwarding the cause of monarchy, was to try and make contact with whatever remnants of the monarchist groups in those areas remained.
In that regard, they had the most success in Victoria - not only did a local branch of the Canadian Monarchist League survive in the city of Victoria, there was also a small group farther north, in the Comox Valley. These locations had, in the absence of direction from above after the blasts, organized a new group, which they called the Monarchist Society of Victoria. Combined with local sentiments, they had managed to keep the idea of a monarchy going on the island, even maintaining a governor-general and officially remaining a monarchy. The Society agreed to affiliate themselves with the League, and almost immediately began work to host King Andrew, should he decide to make the trip.
The situation in Canada, while not as good as the situation in Victoria, could have been worse. A small number of members of the Canadian Monarchist League were found in areas of Nova Scotia, the leftovers of smaller branches which had been located on the north and west coasts of the peninsula. And, even more importantly, contact was made with Margaret Thatcher, who had recently resigned as governor-general. She, and others, had maintained the link with the crown through the years, and the Canadian government, after contact, recognized Andrew as King. For his part, Andrew approved several changes to how the crown functioned in Canada that had occurred over the previous decade. Thatcher's influence had also kept a branch of the Canadian League in St. John's from closing, though its doors had been physically shut for several years.
Still, no umbrella group had formed in the area, leaving the League with a quandary - should they help the Canadian League re-emerge, or set up branches themselves. After talks with the Earl, and the new Canadian governor-general, it was decided that it would be easier to re-establish the Canadian League. So, under the guidance of Thatcher, a branch was established in Antigonish by the Nova Scotians, and, with funding from the League, the branch in St. John's was reopened. The Canadian League, like the Society in Victoria, affiliated itself with the League.
Yet, in the Isles things were perhaps the worst. In the Celtic Alliance, as one would have expected, there was little to no support - the Irish did not exactly agree with the concept of a King. And, on and around the Isle of Wight, there had been an extensive backlash since they had left - the locals were not at all pleased with their departure, feeling like they had been abandoned. While some support remained there, the League would have to start from scratch. By mid-1995, a small branch, run by League members from New Britain, would open in Ryde.
1995 also saw a major event on the international scene: The American Provisional Administration - the vestiges of the United States government - dissolved itself. With this, its former constituent territories became independent. For the League, overall, this meant little, except in one location: Hawaii. There, the government did not immediately join the ANZC Commonwealth like most of the other territories did - rather, they held a constitutional convention. And, to the surprise of many, it had a decidedly pro-monarchy lean to it.
Naturally, the League, largely through its affiliate in the Commonwealth, wanted to encourage this, and a delegate was sent to the convention to aid the monarchists, and the claimant to the throne, Quentin Kawānanakoa, in this mission. In this, with support from Governor Alan Arakawa, they were successful when a full slate of pro-monarchy delegates won elections that November, and promptly crowned Quentin - who took his regal name after his departed father - king. He would personally open up a branch office in Hilo the next fall.
In 1996, going through their affiliate in Victoria, a League representative was sent into the Yukon, accompanying a Victorian diplomatic expedition. The local government received the expedition warmly, and the representative was even allowed to meet with then-Premier John Ostashek, and Commissioner Douglas Bell. The pair were favorable to the concept of monarchy, but were unwilling to go further at that time, both politically and financially. Nor, given the isolation, could the League or its affiliates support a branch there. Because of this, it was decided to only send representatives whenever Victorian diplomats made the journey to Whitehorse.
But it was the next year it which the most significant discovery occurred - Celtic fishing boats off the east coast of Britain encountered a fishing boast, which said it was from a Kingdom named "Cleveland" - ruled by King Andrew's younger sister, Anne. Within a few weeks of the news, confirmed shortly thereafter by the Celts, King Andrew sent a diplomatic team to establish relations with his sister, with League officials attached. After arrival, with permission from the queen, these officials set up a new branch, in support of the Clevish Queen.
1999 saw two things happen to the League - the state of Woodbridge, in southeastern England, was encountered by Celtic forces, and the first branch located outside of what could be called a "Commonwealth" nation was established in País del Oro. League representatives in Cleveland, given that Woodbridge still, very unofficially, recognized the crown, established a new outpost there. Representatives in País del Oro, locating themselves in El Aaiún, began a campaign in support of Spanish monarchists, who, despite the death of the Royal family in Madrid, wished for the monarchy to be maintained and searched for surviving candidates for the throne.
Throughout this period, the League did not forget about its base, in New Britain. They purchased from the government, for very little, a new, larger, headquarters in the capital during the summer of 1998, which they named "Hervey House," in honor of the last Chancellor of the League's predecessor. New branches were also established in the cities of Port Alfred and East London, along with the refugee colony of Salisbury. And, in early 1997, following extensive lobbying by the Earl, Parliament passed a bill in which the League was granted free usage of the Royal Mail, and allowed to send dispatches in the diplomatic post. The League also played an extensive role in the 10th anniversary celebrations of Andrew's coronation that year, gifting him an exquisitely decorated pewter vase in recognition of his "tin" anniversary.
The years after 2000 saw even more growth, and both great successes, and great failures.
In 2005, at the request of the Despots of Morea and Cyrenaica, League representatives, amid slight controversy over the governments of those two states, opened up a new branch in the Greek Confederation. Headquartered in the confederate capital of Skyros, and with funding from the two states, League representatives began advocating for the then-debated federal system to be a monarchical one, while organizing themselves and establishing new branch offices throughout the Confederation. This included their support for a failed 2008 proposal to restore the Byzantine Empire. The League also helped to organize a political party, the Union of Royalists, in 2007.
Still, they supported efforts to make the Confederation into a federal state, culminating in a 2009 referendum on the matter, which successfully passed, reforming the Greek Confederation into the Greek Federation, and admitting Greek Egypt - Kemet - and Cyprus to the union. Their support in this ballot caused a minor rift with their backers in Cyrenaica and Morea, given the mild opposition of those states to the proposal.
This left the question of what kind of government up for debate, however - and after much dispute, another referendum was agreed to, and was held in October of 2009, near the end of the war with Sicily. By a thirteen point margin, voters in the Federation voted in favor of a monarchy. Left up for debate, however, was exactly who, with the death of the Greek royal family on Doomsday, would ascend to the restored throne.
Each political group in the country held their own opinions on this matter, causing great divisions within even the local branches themselves, as no opinion could be reached as to which of the candidates would be supported, despite League researchers having been chief among those investigating into possible claimants. Eventually, it was decided that, having reached their main goal, they would remain neutral on the matter, merely releasing condemnations of the candidacies of Sakis Rouvas and Diamanto Manolakou as "jokers," considering them attempts by groups opposed to the overall concept to ridicule the process. League headquarters, while not officially stating such, did support King Andrew's prospective claim, however, and Earl Hill-Norton even hinted at that view publicly.
So, the result of that vote, in February of 2011, was not something that concerned them. The top two picks, Bahaa el-Din Ahmed Hussein el-Akkad of Kemet and Carl Johan Gustaf Vilhelm Count Bernadotte, proved mildly surprising to some in the League, due to the Despots both failing to make the runoff, but was considered fortuitous overall. And, it made the choice of who to support far clearer - League support and resources were openly given to Carl Johan.
Despite this, in the runoff vote held a month later, Carl Johan would lose in a close race. Bahaa would be crowned the Emperor of Greece that October, in addition to marrying one of Carl Johan's daughters. League officials, including Earl Hill-Norton, were on hand to observe the blessed occasion. The Earl also took the opportunity, along with Antonis Paschalides, head of the Union of Royalists, to announce the formation of a new affiliate, consisting of the Greek branches, which would be run by the Union.
While the happy event in Greece was passing, however, things in Spain took a turn for the worse for monarchism. There, the people, unhappy with a lack of any real results in the situation, voted in a new moderate-Socialist government in 2010. With no good claimants still alive, and those potential ones that remained bickering over the role of claimant as well as other titles elsewhere, the government decided to lay the concept aside, declaring Spain a republic, and setting up a new constitution.
This constitution did, however, leave a significant opening in it - it allowed for the possibility of the crown returning if a claimant could be decided upon. Until then, however, Spain would be a republic, and shortly thereafter, Peoples Party candidate Mateu Isnern of Palma de Mallorca was elected President of Spain in September of 2012.
Despite this setback, and a drop in their local support, Spanish branches of the League did not quit. Instead, they concentrated their efforts on keeping the idea alive, and seeking some degree of compromise among the potential claimants. In this, they were mildly successful, as several claimants agreed to drop their claims in return for support elsewhere, or noble titles in the event of a restoration. Still, there was more than one candidate, left, however. Conservative politicians, with League support, managed to get a concession out of the Spanish government in the summer of 2013: a referendum, both to decide on putting these remaining claimants on the throne, and to pick one of them. This referendum, scheduled for April of 2014, looks favorable despite the setbacks of recent years in the area.
In 2011, following a regency that had been in place since shortly after Doomsday, a new emperor, of the line of Yamato, was declared after a long and often fruitless search.
While the self-isolating policy of Sakoku was in place at the time, and for several months afterwards, barring the League from aiding the Japanese government - or, for that matter, being anywhere near awareness that their search was bearing any fruit - they did try to keep an eye open outside of Japan itself, for any surviving descendants of the Japanese emperors. In this, they had no luck.
So, overall, despite their non-involvement, the League did consider the enthronement of the new emperor a victory for their cause.
In September of 2010, as part of King Andrew's international tour, he stopped in Woodbridge, during which time he addressed Parliament, attended a football match, and launched a ship. League members at the local branch were ecstatic about this, and viewed it as both a reward for their efforts, and a chance to clarify the local situation about the Crown, which had been left with no representative in government, yet not been declared a republic. The government even seemed mildly sympathetic to the concept. However, shortly thereafter, domestic issues caused the fall of said government, and brought a Labor-Liberal coalition to power, ending any such sympathies.
Following many years of relative quiet, and effective neutrality on the subject of Woodbridge's relationship with King Andrew, it came to the forefront in July of 2012 when a member of the Woodbridge Labor Party, Edgar Hale, called for the formal breaking of ties with the King, and an official declaration of Woodbridge being a republic. A bit over two months later, he officially formed a pro-Republic, anti-Monarchy organization to campaign towards his goal.
League officials were then forced to redirect some resources to what had been thought to be a stable area, to campaign against Hale and his Republican Association. In October of that year, this was dealt a major blow when Hale's home was firebombed. A group calling itself the "Woodbridge Royalist Army" sent a message claiming responsibility to the Woodbridge Examiner. This caused a drop in support, and accusations that local representatives of the League had something to do with it. The local branch head, the Board, the Earl, and King Andrew all denied the concept, saying that the idea that the League was involved with a terrorist organization was ludicrous, at best. Still, the accusation remained.
In 2011, in a surprise announcement from his home in Monaco, Muhammad Ali, Prince of Sa'id and son of Faud II, the last King of Egypt, announced that he would be moving back to Egypt, and running for the leadership of the governing New Wafd Party, followed by the presidency. He quickly obtained support from party leaders, and by June of that year, had trounced the only other candidate for the leadership of the party, who became his vice-presidential candidate.
Three months later, in the September presidential elections, Ali would defeat his opponents, with a fourteen point margin over his nearest rival. He was sworn into the presidency the following March.
League officials were surprised at these developments, in an area they had thought long lost to their cause. Within two months of Ali getting elected to the presidency, the League opened up a new branch office in the Egyptian capital, thought the goal of the branch remained rather unclear.
Since then, League representatives have been recruiting new members in the area, and extolling the virtues of the Egyptian Kings, in a series of rather successful pamphlet drives. That the republic which replaced the Kingdom was corrupt, dictatorial, fell as it did, and what happened afterwards, has made this an easier sell than many would have thought.
Currently, it is unknown as to what Ali's intentions are. In many corners, however, it is suspected that he would like to see the Kingdom restored. Whether this would be supported by the public is far more debatable, however, thought it seems to be growing.
2012 elections in the Most Serene Republic of Genoa saw Prince Amedeo, Duke of Aosta, claimant to the Italian throne, win a seat for the Monarchist Alliance party to the Genovesi National Council, bringing its total to five. Because of this, along with losses to the ruling coalition, the party was brought into the government, on the condition that the Duke be named to the largely ceremonial position of Doge, which the government grudgingly agreed to do. He was formally given the chains of that office a month after the elections.
The Duke is known to have ambitions to claim the Italian throne, though he recognizes that such a role is probably impractical at best, especially given the Sicilian state. Pundits expect a move by his party to make the role of Doge hereditary. This is one area where League support has been concentrated as of late.
In April of 2011, on his world tour, King Andrew stopped in Whitehorse, and addressed the Territorial Assembly. The reaction to his speech was very positive, and led to a vote to consider formally naming him King, following several months of consultations with voters. The news caused him to extend his stay there, and he spent an extra two weeks schmoozing the locals.
A few months later, in September, the Assembly met again, and voted on whether or not to recognize Andrew. By a slightly margin than the April vote, he was recognized as King.
In 2010 and 2011, King Andrew, accompanied by members of the League and his family, went on a world tour, stopping throughout the former Commonwealth, and especially in the British Isles, shoring up support for his position, and trying to put New Britain in a better light. He also saw his sister for the first time since prior to Doomsday, and met her family for the first time.
The trip was a success, attracting large crowds throughout his trip, and getting much more support from the governments he met with, such as the Yukon. Some dioceses in the former United Kingdom, which had declined to join the Celtic Church, also declared themselves loyal to him in his role as governor of the Church of England.
New branches of the League, primarily in Europe, were established, most notably in the aftermath of the King's grand tour. Funding for the League increased as well, through both personal donations, and government funding.
In 2006, League branches in the Caribbean, with a couple of exceptions, were spun off into an affiliate group, headquartered out of Anguilla, in order to lobby the East Caribbean Federation better. A small delegation, led by the Earl himself, also aided several groups in the Nordic Union in forming their own organization, which affiliated itself to the League.
The funding increases following the tour allowed the main League offices in New Britain to be moved to a bigger, more productive, location, to better coordinate its activities. A full-time investigator, with the mission of searching on the ground for any potential heirs that could have survived the events of Doomsday, was also hired. This has proven somewhat fruitful, with a potential heir to the Bulgarian throne, for example, being located among former refugees in southern Vermont.
Things have even become well enough with regards to the League that a small number of individuals have been sent outwards, to establish small, temporary branches in states that they had identified potential claimants in, in the hope of attracting interest. To date, one in Novgorod has been the only stable one of these, but there is hope for the project in the future.
Of late, there has also been talk of spinning off another affiliate group from League branches inside the British Isles. The governing board of the League has been discussing the matter for a very long time, now, with no result, so it is unlikely to happen anytime soon.
And, overall, the League has supported the concept of a reunified France - provided that they recognize the Duke of Orleans as King. The Duke's goal in this regard, with League backing, has gained some credibility on the international level.
The primary goal of the League is to advance the cause of monarchism worldwide. This manifests itself in two ways: supporting current monarchs, and advocating the re-instatement of others. For the latter method, they either advocate for the claimant to be restored to their throne, or for a possible claimant, such as was the case in the Greek Federation, to be named to it following the demise of the primary lineage on or after the events of Doomsday.
Currently, the League is concentrating such efforts in and around the Mediterranean Sea, where it feels that the odds are most in favor of the achievement of its goals for the time being. Primarily, these efforts are directed towards Spain and Italy at this time, though the situation in Egypt is being closely monitored as well.
The League is governed by a Board of Directors, headed by a Chairman, who, according to the League charter, is to stay in that role until they leave the office at their own discretion.
The League Chairman is currently Nicholas Hill-Norton, Earl Hill-Norton, son of the League founder and first Chairman, Earl Peter Hill-Norton. When Hill-Norton leaves the position, he, like his father, will be able to, pending board approval, appoint his successor.
The Board of Directors consists of representatives from many sections of the League. Consisting of fourteen members, in addition to the Chairman, it includes representatives from the League Affiliates - Leagues in Canada, Victoria, the East Caribbean Federation, the ANZC Commonwealth, the Nordic Union, and the Greek Federation - nominated representatives from League member branches, and two individuals appointed by King Andrew.
With regards to size, however, the Board itself varies - it can, and does, name other members to itself from society in general, up to a maximum of sixteen Board members total.
In addition, there are two secondary governing boards, both directly answerable to the Board of Directors. These are responsible for international operations, and operations inside New Britain, respectively. Each of these boards consists of five members, four of which are nominated by the branches covered by that board, and the fifth, who heads up the board, is nominated by the chairman.

Over the years, in addition to the normal criticisms by some, especially Republicans, for supporting an "outdated institution," the myth of extra expenses, and the like, the League has been criticized for other reasons as well.
Primarily, this relates to their support of monarchs who can at best be considered to be dictatorial, such as Waldeck-Hesse and San Joaquin, and others that could be considered oppressive, such as those in the Middle East and parts of Greece. The League has, however, defended itself, noting that in such cases, it remains an advocate for constitutionalism, and strives to aid such regimes in reform.
Aside from that, they have been targeted in the past for their obvious support of New Britain, even during its aggressive phase of international relations. However, both the League and its Chairman are on record as having disapproved of those movements, and maintain an independent role in New British politics, not supporting one party over another - their support in government lends itself to King Andrew, not any one political direction, and the Earl himself is a noted Independent in the House of Lords.
Since late October, 2012, there have also been accusations that League elements aided terrorists in Woodbridge, though no proof of such a thing has ever been found.
