Absolute monarch designates that the king has unchecked power over his subjects.
Sommerville, (1992) in his book stated that agreement establishes three forms of authority. The
three forms include aristocracy, monarchy and democracy. Hobbes' pessimistic view believes

maintaining consistent functionality.
The monarch has the authority to preside the government, establish every law, set the first
principle, adjust arising disputes, and be in charge of all churches. According to Hobbes, this is
