This lecture tries to understand the connections between concepts such as Consent, Monarchy and Indigeneity in relation to the legacies of British and Hispanic presence in the Americas. The objective is to identify the importance of monarchies as contemporary political institutions. The lecture includes some contemporary examples that illustrate the relevance of the topic. Theoretically, the proposal is based on the notion of concepts as “tools for the collection of facts, containers of data” (Giovani Sartori 1970).
