How to use "Absolute monarchy" in context?

Under absolute monarchy, the king is the absolute ruler of the nation. He is not subject to any law, nor is he obligated to consult with Parliament or any other body. The king is able to make any decisions without judicial review, and he may bequeath his powers to his heir without any warning.

While there are many benefits to absolute monarchy, it has also been said to be incredibly oppressive. The king is able to do anything he wants, and there is no way for the people to hold him accountable. This often results in regimes where the king is able to rule arbitrarily and without regard for the people or the nation.
