The monarchy of Stormwind is the absolute hereditary monarchy of the Kingdom of Stormwind. The monarch bears the title of "King" or "Queen" and holds absolute power within the kingdom, headings its government, departments, and armed forces. The current monarch is King Anduin Llane Wrynn.

The monarchy is hereditary, but has seen regent-lords in the past to rule in place of the sovereign.

The House of Wrynn has historically held the Stormwindian monarchy after its first member, King Logan I, proclaimed the Kingdom of Stormwind's statehood after rebelling from the crumbling Empire of Arathor during the War for Stormwind's Independence.

While not inherent to the throne, all (two) High Kings of the Grand Alliance have been the King of Stormwind; additionally, the founder and only leader of its predecessor, the Alliance of Lordaeron, was regent-lord of Stormwind. As such, the monarchy has had an increasing influence as a representative of all of civilized humanity with the fall or disarray of most of the original Seven Human Kingdoms.

Titles and Styles Edit

The monarch goes by a number of styles, but presently the most common ones are (naturally, "his" and "king" are replaced with "her" and "queen" in the event of a female sovereign):

  • King X (Wrynn)
  • His Majesty the King (of Stormwind)
  • His Majesty, King X (Wrynn) (of Stormwind)
  • His Majesty X (Wrynn), King of Stormwind, High King of the Grand Alliance
