    Only Listed Reigning Monarchs as head of the state and ranked king or above

    there are more sub national monarchies and nations with Princes, Sultans, Grand Dukes, Emirs as head of the state. Emperor Akhihito has no constitutional power.

    Monarchs of UK, Spain, Thailand, Cambodia, Bhutan and some other countries has limited power, they have a parliment. But some constitutional powers remain with monarch(like head of the armed forces, appoint a prime minister, dissolution of parliament, etc)

    Saudi Arabia has full power(no political party) and I haven't seen even a photograph of Saudi princess or queen consort.

    Saudi Arabia monarch has full power and political parties are banded
