Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking.
Yet, it actually pretty obvious what was being asked (whether despotism is inherently contradictory to having a legislative body).
Not only that but is very answerable, objectively - despotism is not by itself contradictory to the idea of legislation, in at least two variants:
A combo of single-monarch despotism with legislature exists both now - IIRC, UAE or another Arab emirate - as well as in the past , e.g. parliaments in England and France around 100 year war.
A legislature can in theory hold absolute power as required by definition of despotism (I'm tempted to call post-French-Revolution Committee of Public Safety such, but I'm not certain if it can be considered part of "legislature" or merely a separate executive branch; alternately, Central Committee of a post-Stalin USSR would count effectively).
