The Scandinavian Kingdoms have some of the most impressive, medival, royal and majestic crowns and royal jewels. It is a real shame they are not used any more. I would love to have the coronatins brought back. I know that they use the danish crown jewels at a monarchs funeral and the norwegian crown jewels at the annoitment ceremony, but what else do they use them for and does sweden use theirs.

In sweden they have been on display at important cermonies such as the wedding between the king and queen in 1976. Then the kings crown and the queens crown where placed on small cusions at either side of the altar (do you say altar in english?). I don´t remember if they have been in use since then, maybe at the christenings, maybe someone else can help with that answer?.

The Swedish National Regalia are still used at the most important events of the country and in the Royal Family. For example at funerals, weddings, accessions of a new monarch, baptisms and things alike.

They are however not worn, as correctly pointed out here, but displayed (at a table) - marking the special moment and rare occasion of the country and in the Royal Family.

I believe that the last time we saw one of the royal crowns used in Sweden was at the death of Prince Bertil, when the Ducal Crown of Halland was displayed on his coffin during his laying-in-state, and present at the funeral (I have posted a few pictures from his funeral and lying-in-state where you can see the crown, the post can be found here).

The purpose of all the filigree work was to let rays of light stream out of the crown in all directions making the king appear as the source of light. A coronation must have been very impressive in those days.

does anybody know about the Greek and Spanish crowns, I know there's no Greek royalty anymore (in terms of state, because I know about Konstantinos & Co. ) and in Spain there's not a crowning because the king/queen does not wear it, but I'm curious to know where are their crowns, the only thing we see is the girls' tiaras...

It's interesting crisinaki. I couldn't find much about Spanish crowns other than this link.

http://www.crownminiatures.com/spain-alphonso.html

It says that the old crown jewels of Spain were destroyed by a fire in 1734 and this crown was created in the 19th century.

The site is fascinating; it's a business offering miniature crowns of several nations so you could gather a collection of most of the crowns of Europe.

No it is not placed on the head of the monarch anymore. The original one was stolen I think and that is just a replica. The replica is still used in the ceremony it is just not actually put on the monarchs head.

This crown is the original. It never been stolen. The current king has worn only one time in the coronation ceremony.
You can see images in http://203.144.136.10/service/mod/he...sek/index4.htm

Old pics of the Coronation as King and Queen of Hungary of the Emperor Karl of Austria and his wife the Empress Zita (neé Princess of Bourbon-Parma) in Budapest in 1916.
The Austrian side of the Dual Monarchy did not have a Coronation ceremony for the Emperor of Austria, or before that, of the Holy Roman Emperor.
No Hungarian King was considered legitimate until he had been crowned with the Crown of St Stephen. The golden pinnacle cross was knocked askew about 1790, and has remained at that angle since then.

The King Emperor is wearing the historic Crown of St Stephen (the lower part of which may date from the 1070s), while the Queen Empress is wearing the Hungarian Queen's Crown.
The Crown of St Stephen was seized by US troops during WWII and not returned to Hungary from its safe-keeping at Fort Knox until 1978.

1. Both have to be heavy as heck, they should wear a head/neck supporter of some kind to bear that weight
2. Did the DoE wear a crown in the coronation of QEII? Which one?
