There are a few dates in the Swedish coronation dates that are repeated:
* June 29th - Karl Knutson, Kristian I, Erik XIV and Karl XIII
* November 26th - Hans and Adolf Fredrik
* September 28th - Karl XI and Oskar I
* May 3rd - Fredrik I and Karl XV

Karl X Gustav's coronation took place on June 6th, after the abdication of his predecessor (and cousin) Kristina. The date was most certainly chosen, as it was the date their great-grandfather had been elected king of Sweden by the Riksdag in 1523.

King Stephen of England had his coronation on Christmas Day, December 25, 1141 at Canterbury Cathedral. This was the second coronation for Stephen. He had first been crowned King of England on December 26, 1135 at Westminster Abbey.

Either on December 25th 1000 or January 1st 1001, the first day of the second millennium, king (saint) Stephen I of Hungary was crowned with the holy crown of Hungary.

Coronation Oath, 2 June 1953

In the Coronation ceremony of 2 June 1953, one of the highlights was when The Queen made her Coronation Oath (taken from the Order of Service for the Coronation).

The Queen having returned to her Chair, (her Majesty having already on Tuesday, the 4th day of November, 1952, in the presence of the two Houses of Parliament, made and signed the Declaration prescribed by Act of Parliament), the Archbishop standing before her shall administer the Coronation Oath, first asking the Queen,
Madam, is your Majesty willing to take the Oath?
And the Queen answering,
I am willing.

The Archbishop shall minister these questions; and The Queen, having a book in her hands, shall answer each question severally as follows:

Archbishop. Will you solemnly promise and swear to govern the Peoples of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the Union of South Africa, Pakistan, and Ceylon, and of your Possessions and the other Territories to any of them belonging or pertaining, according to their respective laws and customs?
Queen. I solemnly promise so to do.

Archbishop. Will you to your power cause Law and Justice, in Mercy, to be executed in all your judgements?
Queen. I will.

Archbishop. Will you to the utmost of your power maintain the Laws of God and the true profession of the Gospel? Will you to the utmost of your power maintain in the United Kingdom the Protestant Reformed Religion established by law? Will you maintain and preserve inviolably the settlement of the Church of England, and the doctrine, worship, discipline, and government thereof, as by law established in England? And will you preserve unto the Bishops and Clergy of England, and to the Churches there committed to their charge, all such rights and privileges, as by law do or shall appertain to them or any of them?
Queen. All this I promise to do.

Then the Queen arising out of her Chair, supported as before, the Sword of State being carried before her, shall go to the Altar, and make her solemn Oath in the sight of all the people to observe the premisses: laying her right hand upon the Holy Gospel in the great Bible (which was before carried in the procession and is now brought from the Altar by the Arch-bishop, and tendered to her as she kneels upon the steps), and saying these words:

The things which I have here before promised, I will perform and keep. So help me God.

Then the Queen shall kiss the Book and sign the Oath.
The Queen having thus taken her Oath shall return again to her Chair, and the Bible shall be delivered to the Dean of Westminster.

Henry VI of England had two English coronations. The first was in November 1429 at Westminster Abbey. The second was in October 1470 at St. Paul's Cathedral.
Was it necessary that Henry was crowned in 1470?
