For the Dead Lands Monarchs, see: Monarchs (Dead Lands).

The Monarch is the playable character in the Kingdom series. The Monarch runs the kingdom by traversing it upon their mount, and organising the work of their subjects, using coins.


The King wears the Crown and a coloured cape while the Queen wears a Tiara and coloured dress.

Players choose their monarch's appearance when first starting the game. By pressing the S or button (or by tapping the screen in the mobile version) during the loading screen, sex, skin colour, and the colour of the cape or dress will be randomised, letting the player decide on their preference. Once selected, players cannot change their character unless they start a new game.

Players also get their character a banner with random tinctures, ordinaries and charge after they establish a camp in game. The colour of the banner will be the same with the colour of the character's cape or dress.

PC – The pause screen allows the player to alter the banner manually. For details, see Coat of arms.


Two Crowns

This is about Kingdom Two Crowns.

KTC square logo

Kingdom Two Crowns introduced the possibility to play with a second monarch. Playing in coop make a lot of things easier, like having two different mounts, doubling the coins and gems carrying capacity, and being able to manage both sides of the kingdom simultaneously.

Both monarchs need to lose their crowns in order to lose the game. If one monarch loses the crown, the other can craft him/her a new one for 8 coins. A crownless monarch isn't able to interact with anything and the Greed ignores them.

For further information, see: Co-op.


On online co-op, whenever the second Monarch rejoins the campaign or when they travel to a new island, his/her pouch is completely emptied. See the work-around on history.


  • So far there is no defeat where the Monarch outright dies, although they are implied to have died since the Ghost has the colour of the previous monarch's dress/cloak.



Date Game Platform Version Change
Dec 11, 2018 Two Crowns All 1.1.0 - R9972 Four monarchs with their own specific abilities replace the regular monarchs on Dead Lands.
BUG: On online co-op, whenever the 2nd Monarch (client) rejoins the campaign or when they travel to a new island, his/her pouch is completely emptied.


All coins and gems disappear. According to dev. Angelica on Discord and on Steam: "the coins and gems are not completely lost, but sort of invisible and unusable." And suggests the following work-arounds:
  1. Let the hosting player hold the valuables when you transition between islands or when you take a break from the game.
  2. If you're playing on Steam, you can try using Steam's Remote Play functionality to avoid this bug altogether and play split-screen. The issue does not happen in local co-op sessions (which Steam remote play is using, even though it's online).
  3. If the issue occurs, the coins and gems are not completely lost, but sort of invisible and unusable. There is a way to get them back - if you let a greed hit the ruler they will magically pop out of the bag and become visible and usable if you pick them up again. So go stand by a portal, let a single greed spawn, and hit you a bunch of time and the coins and gems should return.


Dec 11, 2018 Two Crowns All 1.0.0 3 monarch skins on Europe (1 male and 2 females) and 3 other on Shogun (2 males and 1 female), replaced the young king and the long hair queen skins.
