comment How democratic was Imperial Germany?
@fdb: the government is accountable to Parliament, in that either house can summon a minister to appear before it, and the Commons can defeat a government in a confidence motion, forcing them from power.

Do you mean the Parliament of the United Kingdom? The Parliament of England ceased to exist in 1707.

comment What are the immediate legal effects of rendering a royal branch illegitimate?
If there was doubt over the current monarch's legitimacy, and Parliament passed a bill making it clear, who would grant it Royal Assent? The current monarch couldn't, as their role would be in doubt until the bill became an act. It's a bit of a Catch 22 situation!
