The French Municipal Monarchy

The city government – the so-called “municipal monarchy”, a legacy of two
centuries of experience in France – is often opposed to genuine local democracy.
Based on a strong personalization of power as a consequence of the
concentration of authority and the central role of the figure of the mayor,
the municipal system does borrow some of its methods from the system of
notable as well as some of its appearance from the monarchy. However, in
view of its present difficulties it is not possible to conclude that it is a “personal
government”. These monarchical forms are in fact part and parcel of
the local Republic.
