Louis Alphonse de Bourbon as King of Quebec?

Louis Alphonse de Bourbon as King of Quebec?
While many of here in this forum wait for France to consider restoration of a limited monarchy, which may not happen in our life times, why not consider a more plausible scenario, Quebec!

The Provence of Quebec, Canada is coming upon a general election on 7 April 2014 which could lead to Quebec succeeding from Canada to become its own sovereign country. At the moment, this French speaking region, could elect members of the Parti Quebecious that support an independence movement.

If this were to occur, does anyone think that Quebec could adopt a Constitutional Monarchy form of government? And, if so, do you think they would invite the senior male heir of the Capetian Dynasty, Louis Alphonse de Bourbon, Duke of Anjou, to become King of Quebec while patiently waiting for the potential return of the monarchy to France?

Adopting a monarch could be good for business. It would bring a sense of identity to Quebec, reinforce the French culture, bolster the economy, encourage tourism (just look at national pride and tourism related revenues that William and Kate generate for the U.K.).

Quebec has an opportunity to invite the senior member of the House of Bourbon, a cadet branch of the House of Capet, a descendant of Charlemagne through Robert the Strong and his wife Beatrice of Vermandious who is a descendant of the Counts of Vermandious, and therefore Pepin of Italy, the second eldest son of Charlemagne. What better way to establish the old world culture of the mother country and jump start a new identity simultaneously.

Canada currently recognizes Queen Elizabeth II as their Queen and it seems Quebec in wishing to separate itself from Canada would want a monarch that better represents their French culture. Louis Alphonse, a young and modern individual with two male heirs, could fill this void nicely. Louis I of Quebec (Louis XX of France in pretense).

Comments and discussion welcome.

A newly independent country would no doubt choose, sadly, to become a republic, as that is the way of the world. Additionaly what would the country be called? The United States will not allow any nation in North America to be called "Kingdom", Canada tried it and the US nixed it. It would be a wonderful thing but terribly unlikely.

I would be more concerned over a break up of Canada causing the overthrow of HM Elizabeth of Canada and the creation of three new, drab republics: Quebec, Eastern Canada and Western Canada.

The will to separate peaked at almost 50% in the 1990s and has been going downhill ever since largely due to lack of support amongst the young. Bringing it up cost Marois the last election. Most of Northern Quebec is native land, who have always been 97% or more in favour of staying in Canada, and it would remain in Canada thus geographically connecting the Atlantic and the rest. That said, the Parti Quebecois every so often bring it up and could rope a royal into their vision. I would recommend that Louis Alphonse and all other royals stay away from the Parti Quebecois as it is just a dream.
