To raise and train your rulers from birth to rule..
And thus avoid totally unqualified dumpster fires who can talk a good game..aka demagogues ..
Now obviously that is not a perfect system either... none is..
With monarchies you are rolling the dice that the person you trained from birth was not born a psychopath..
Hypothetically, then you have someone who can make the hard decision, even when it is unpopular.

Wanna Invade your Neighbor???
Wanna build a wall to keep out the monguls that will take 3 generations to build??
