A Guide to the Crowns and Coronets of the Known World
Updated: July, 2014

This is an attempt to make it possible to see what the official Crowns and Coronets from all of the Kingdoms and Principalities across the Known World look like, and if possible to provide photographs of the current Royalty of the Known World. Where there are multiple sets of Crowns/Coronets, either still in use, or Historic and archived, it would be great to have photos of all versions.

Note: The photographs used here are with the explicit permission of the photographers involved. Please do not assume that you can use them for your own purposes without contacting the photographers first.

Note: As the Royalty for each Kingdom/Principality changes at schedules that are different for each Kingdom and Principality, I cannot keep track of constant changes. If you can help by letting me know when they have changed, and if there are current photos, I'd greatly appreciate it. (Contact information below.)

Along the same lines, I cannot automatically keep track of all changes to websites, when photos get added, moved, websites disappear, etc. If you see something has changed that I have not kept up with, please feel free to drop me a note.

Kingdom/Principality Crown or Coronet Current Royalty
1 West, Kingdom of the Current:

Historic:

1 The "New Crowns" of the West were created with the idea that the "old" Silver Crowns made by Henrik of Havn in AS X are in serious need of repair, but the King and Queen would want something to wear while they were being fixed. Mark von dem Falkensfenn and Diane de Winchester made the new Crowns (on commissions), which were presented at 12th Night Coronation to the King and Queen. The "old" crowns will be refurbished and retained, and most likely worn again in the future. The photos from the West Kingdom History site are by Esmeralda of the Lakes.
