I had not heard of this before. Who would be the current monarch of Argentina?
Nobody. It is a Republic.
What a pity...but do notice the conditional ("Who would be").

The Carlotismo (from the Infanta Carlota Joquina of Spain, married to
the Emperor of Brazil) was discarded as the Infanta was not going to
install a Parliamentary Monarchy.
The benefits of a Monarchy are lost if they can not correct the
The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.
You are telling me! I'm a monarchist. However, the country was born as a
Republic. There are less than 12 members in the Argentinian Monarchic
Movement, including myself. The country never accepted and will never accept a > monarchy, which is a shame.
If there ever were to be a king, the proposed one at the time of Independence > was an [alleged] illegitimate half-brother of the rebel Túpac Amaru II, who
had been executed without leaving any offspring. It was thought more as a
transitional form of government than a permanent one, as the proposed "king"
(Juan Bautista Condorcanqui Monjarrás, later Juan Bautista Túpac Amaru) was
already 70 years old and unmarried and without any known relative at that
Simply put, the idea was to transition for a short time from a colony to an
overtly controlled Monarchy (with an aold puppet king as figurehead) and then > to a Republic.

Túpac Amaru II, as at the moment of the latter's execution Juan Bautista
manifested being the son of an Aymara (a Peruvian-Bolivian ethnicity), and
then 20 years later retracting and saying he was indeed an illegitimate
paternal half-brother of the "last" Inca (who, by the way, was not Inca at all > except that he was descended in the maternal line from the true last Inca,
Túpac Amaru I), the overwhelming majority of Constituents who chose the form
of government, who would have never allowed a nobody, much less a Mestizo, to > govern the country, decided in favor of a Republic.
There has never been a monarchical sentiment in Argentina
And yet Pincheiro Brethren operated in Argentina, last men to be loyal Spaniards anywhere in Spanish Main.
Besides Pincheiros, who were the most successful and popular Goth leaders in La Plata between 1810 and 1832?
