Recommended royalty / monarchy / empire fantasy books

An image depicting the  fantasy sub-genre category

Please find below a list of recommended fantasy books where royalty, monarchy or empire are integral to the story. Fantasy books, especially those with a strong medieval influence, often feature the ruling classes in prominent roles - characters whose actions heavily influence the story. Good examples of royalty / monarchy / empire fantasy would be Robin Hobb's Farseer trilogy, Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn trilogy and N. K. Jemisin's Inheritence trilogy (did I just write trilogy three times?).
