Between all the magic, connections to the royal family, and her own Princess-hood, every other pony really is just gambling that Twilight isn't going to just start locking ponies up or banishing them whenever they piss her off.

Monarchies are like that.

Monarchies have only one Monarch, Equestria has three. This is called a Triarchy I believe.

Sure, in theory. This kind of invalidates my joke, but Twilight holds no apparent power of state, and I'm pretty sure Luna is happy just to get control of her little barren, rocky satellite back. Celestia seems pretty well in charge of everything.

Then again, I feel like pony politics depends more on headcanon than most other aspects of the show.

Yeah, Equestrian politics is strange. I personally believe Celestia hold the most power simply by tradition. She's been a lone ruler for 1000 years so for there to suddenly be two more is a bit of a shock to the system for Equestria. Everyone looks up to Celestia much more than they would anyone else because it's been that way for a very long time.

Well, I imagine that Celestia abdicates whatever power she decides to abdicate. I doubt there's a formal structure in place for the other Princesses to help or give them any innate authority because of their title. She's always been the sovereign, so why would they have any such system?

I suppose it helps that the sovereign is an immortal being responsible for one of the most vital ecological functions on the planet.

If we had a ruler who was demonstrably a God(dess), I'd probably be a lot less into democracy too.

I think she made it clear, in the first episode of this (4)season, that she REALLY doesn't want ponies to make a 'big deal' about it... which seems terrifyingly effective apparently ?

Still, as some reviewers said... The 'NO ONE IN EQUESTRIA' caring about it is getting quite ''old''.

It could be that Manehatten is, by some legal miracle, an independent sovereign, which would make the mane 6's exploits irrelevant and Twilight's authority technically null. Sort of like the Crystal Empire/Kingdom/City-State/Whateverthefuckyouwanttocallit.

This is exactly what I was thinking he whole time!

Actually, I think it also illustrates where Twilight needs to grow as a character. She needs to grow more backbone. Yes, it's good to be humble and kind, and Twilight is a very good pony already, but she also needs assertiveness, more than she already demonstrates. Not everyone needs to be her friend, and she will undoubtedly need to assert herself to ponies in a true time of need later. Hopefully this is addressed in the remainder of the season.

My thought is that matriarchal classist does not apply in Manehattan. Twilight have to fill up a few hundred documents to have a proper authorization as an Alicorn.

He knows the truth, Celestia only wanted an excuse for hosting a big celebration and party on.

How many times Equestria gets invanded, I don't think they have a lake of heroes. Meanwhile, they totally forgot about teleportation spells, or potensial flying her.
