Cooperation, conflict and co-option: defining relationships between the royal dictatorships of South Eastern Europe and the far-right during the interbellum
MetadataShow full item record
This study will examine existing academic materials to explore the relationship the Royal Dictatorships of Yugoslavia, Romania and Bulgaria had with the far-right movements in their respective countries. It will seek to define this relationship and produce a comparison between the three. It will seek to produce a detailed oversight of often competing historical narratives in academic literature to find an accurate picture to present. Were they truly ‘Monarcho-Fascist’ regimes as their left-wing opponents would argue; were they merely utilising far-right support and style to provide stability; or where they actively hostile to the far-right, fighting a losing battle in a charged political atmosphere. Understanding this relationship can help us explain the shift from constitutional monarchy to royal dictatorship and explore the nature of those regimes. By comparing the three countries, it endeavours produce a model for explaining the choices made by the respective monarchs; to Cooperate, Conflict or Co-Opt.
