does prince rainer III have a crown? if so, does anyone have a pic of it
I read in Taborelli's book (not sure how accurate this is) that the Grimaldi/Monaco regalia was stolen many, many years ago. It was decided to not replace it.
Maybe one day....
Monaco needs someone like Q.Marie of Roumania, with a flair for the dramatic!
Then there's the Crown of St Stephen, and the crown that Empress Zita wore at the coronation of Emperor Karl (and herself) as King and Queen of Hungary in 1916.
And there is the Swedish Regalia, various crowns, including the crowns of the Royal Princes.
The Bavarian King's Crown
The silver-gilt "symbolic" crown of the Kings of Spain
and of course Iran.
Regalia of The Netherlands
The crown symbolises the sovereignty of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the dignity of its head of state. As the accession ceremony is not a coronation but an investiture, the crown is never placed on the monarch's head. The orb represents the territory over which the monarch rules, namely the Netherlands, the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba. The sceptre and the sword of state stand for the sovereign's authority and power respectively. The regalia were made in 1840 by craftsmen commissioned by William II.
