A kingdom is a country ruled by a King or a Queen. Most of modern-days Kingdoms however are represented by sovereigns that no longer have political commitments in their nation. They stand only as the remaining of a long lasting royalist tradition.
Kingdoms were governed by a monarchic system, one of the first type of political systems that ever existed.

Nowadays, some countries, like the United Kingdom, Italy, New Zealand... are still Kingdoms. The queen Elizabeth of England will be soon the oldest monarch that ever lived.
