The Crown Party is one of the two major political parties in the Union of Royal American States, along with the Whig Party. Founded in 1805 by King Andrew I and some of his political advisors, the Crown Party dominated the country's political system for most of its early years. The personal party of the monarchy for a large part of its existence, after several national defeats it is now considered on par with the previously opposition Whig Party. Four Prime Ministers have been members of the Crown Party, including the current one, Martin Van Buren. An exception is Lewis Cass, who also became Prime Minister with support by half of the Crowns, although he was technically a member of the Unionist Party.

Currently the party's platform reflects an interest in free trade, a powerful monarch within constitutional limits, and an expantionist foreign policy.
