History is an endless chain of decisions, but cause and effect are tricky concepts and the choices one makes, may seem a lot less apealing, after one has made them. In "The Monarch" players will be groomed to become the dictator of a fictional country in the early 20th century and take their place as it's dictator. The history books will have a lot to say about their rule, but what the exact recounts will be, depends on the players actions and their consequences. Will you lower taxes and prevent revolutions, start wars and accidently attack your own troops, declare penguins an enemy of the state? It's up to you. Just remember that the repercussions of your choices may still be felt in decades to come, so... you know... no pressure... So what do we do now, great ruler?
