Seems like you folks all want a bit of dictatorship. Welcome to Soviet Equestria then.

always known twilight was a noob.

Between all the magic, connections to the royal family, and her own Princess-hood, every other pony really is just gambling that Twilight isn't going to just start locking ponies up or banishing them whenever they piss her off.

Monarchies are like that.

Monarchies have only one Monarch, Equestria has three. This is called a Triarchy I believe.

Sure, in theory. This kind of invalidates my joke, but Twilight holds no apparent power of state, and I'm pretty sure Luna is happy just to get control of her little barren, rocky satellite back. Celestia seems pretty well in charge of everything.

Then again, I feel like pony politics depends more on headcanon than most other aspects of the show.

Yeah, Equestrian politics is strange. I personally believe Celestia hold the most power simply by tradition. She's been a lone ruler for 1000 years so for there to suddenly be two more is a bit of a shock to the system for Equestria. Everyone looks up to Celestia much more than they would anyone else because it's been that way for a very long time.
SFaccountant's avatar

Well, I imagine that Celestia abdicates whatever power she decides to abdicate. I doubt there's a formal structure in place for the other Princesses to help or give them any innate authority because of their title. She's always been the sovereign, so why would they have any such system?

I suppose it helps that the sovereign is an immortal being responsible for one of the most vital ecological functions on the planet.

If we had a ruler who was demonstrably a God(dess), I'd probably be a lot less into democracy too.

Well, she DID say when she became a princess it doesn't change who she is
She didn't really want any special treatment so


She could have used it to her advantage ONCE
