    Right. Aristocrats are members of the aristocracy which "is a class of persons holding exceptional rank and privileges, especially the hereditary nobility." (From Dictionary.com)

    A democracy is a government of ordinary people who vote for their leaders. Aristocrats are no more important than any other citizen.

    Development of an aristocracy has nothing to do with democracy.
