The People's Monarchist Party (Italian: Partito Monarchico Popolare, PMP) was an Italian conservative party founded in 1954 by a split from the National Monarchist Party. It was led by Achille Lauro, long-time Mayor of Naples. It first ran candidates in the 1958 election and won 14 chamber of deputies seats and 5 senate seats.[1]

In 1959, after this good result (2.6%, while the rival PNM scored just 2.2%), the party re-joined the National Monarchist Party to form the Italian Democratic Party, latterly named Italian Democratic Party of Monarchist Unity.
