Not an enthronement...
 
Charles of the United Kingdom is not a monarch yet, but he has already had an event that was closer to a coronation than most of the European monarchs had.

Charles was invested as Prince of Wales on 1 July 1969 at Caernarfon Castle in Caernarfon, Wales.

Mapple 10-05-2005 04:30 PM

King Bhumibol Adulyadej succeded his brother Ananda Mahidol, who was found shot dead on 9 June 1946.

Farah was an Empress Consort and not an actual ruler of Iran. Her husband Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi was the Iranian monarch, having replaced his father Reza Shah Pahlavi on 16 September 1941. The Shah and Empress Farah were crowned one after the other, that's why I listed them together.

Akihito of Japan succeded on 7 January 1989, when his father Emperor Hirohito died.

Josefine 10-05-2005 04:35 PM

so after the death of Reza Shah Pahlavi ?

Constanine II, the King of the Hellenes, certainly had an enthronement ceremony in 1964, but I cannot find the exact date and place of it.

I'm not sure whether King Abdullah II had some distinct ceremony of enthronement.

King Mohammed VI succeded upon the death of his father Hassan II on 23 July 1999; he was enthroned in Rabat a week later.

No, Reza Shah was pressurised into abdicating the throne by the Allies; he was considered pro-German.

Also, the Pahlavis were not titled Emperors, they were Shahs with the style of 'His Imperial Majesty'.

Mapple 10-05-2005 04:52 PM

'Invested' is a right word. The ceremony of investiture is traditional for the Princes of Wales; the timing of the event is up to the ruling monarch. He even had the Crown of the Prince of Wales (to be precise, the coronet) placed on his head. However, I think that it is better to stick to monarchs, leaving the investiture of Charles as an exception.

Well, yes... The Times of London, though, even called that ceremony 'an ornate coronation service'. :rolleyes:

Not at all, I've always been interested in the subject of coronations.

Are you interested in the Nepalese ones?

King Gyanendra of Nepal was proclaimed as King on the deposition of his grandfather King Tribhuvan on 6 November 1950. He was crowned at the Nyasal Chowk, Hanuman Dhoka Palace in Kathmandu on 7 November, but was deposed on 8 January 1951, and King Tribhuvan returned to the throne.

King Mahendra succeeded on the death of his father King Tribhuvan on 14 March 1955; he was crowned at the Nyasal Chowk on 2 May 1956.

King Birendra succeded on the death of his fatherKing Mahendra on 31 January 1972; his coronation took place at the Nyasal Chowk on 24 February 1975.

King Dipendra succeeded on the death of his father King Birendra on 1 June 2001 while comatose. He was never crowned; the reasons for that are evident.

King Gyanendra ascended the throne again on the death of his nephew King Dipendra on 4 June 2001. He was crowned on the same day for a second time.

King Taufa'ahau Tupou IV succeeded on the death of his mother Queen Salote Tupou III on 16 December 1965. He was crowned at the Chapel Royal in Nuku'alofa on 4 July 1967.

In this link you will see the enthronement of Queen Juliana of The Netherlands:

http://www.beeldengeluid.nl/template...ie&artid=10702

Go to the right side and scroll down to 'fragmenten' and choose: 'Inauguratie koningin Juliana 25 jaar geleden'.

She spoke the (in The Netherlands) almost legendary words: 'Since two days ago I am called to a task which is so heavy (...) but also so beautiful, that I can only say: who am I that I may do this?'

His coronation was covered extensively in National Geograhic. There were some excellent pictures, and the issue is available on disc. The ceremony was also attended by the Duke and Duchess of Kent.

The members of the British royal family have usually attended the coronations of foreign monarchs. I know that the Duke of Gloucester was present when Haile Selassie was crowned in 1930; the Prince of Wales attended the coronation of the King of Nepal, Birendra, in 1975. However, I'm not sure whether foreign royals were invited to Charles's Caernarfon investiture in 1969.
