In the republic, the president or prime minister needs a majority in parliament, the monarch must necessarily have popular acclamation to be considered legitimate to reign. There is no possibility of a monarch without popular support, it's like having a car without wheels, it's aimless. The monarch needs the trust of his people to be a head of state.

When the monarch is born, he begins to be prepared to reign, that is, to be head of state. He is taught to be non-partisan, neutral, perpetual defender of the constitution. The teachings come from family traditions, politics, economics, languages, etc. In the republic it is different, anyone without any technical training can reach the post of president without any problem, without any concern for the quality of service that the person will provide to the nation.

In the Brazilian monarchy (1822-1889) we had the 4th power, the moderating power, this power was exclusive to the emperor to use in cases of political, economic and social crisis. It was based on specific cases such as: Parliament fails to reach common sense, some corruption scandal. With this the emperor has the power to dissolve parliament and call new elections. Detail, this also applies to parliament in case of removal, if the monarch is not being neutral, is practicing favoritism or even going against the constitution, in these specific cases the monarch is removed by the prime minister, and the next in the line of succession is becomes the new head of state.
