Twice a year there is a mighty tournament, called the Crown Tournament where the toughest and best fighters do combat. The victor gains the right to 'rule' as 'King' or 'Queen' for the next 6 months. Their chosen consort becomes their Queen or possibly King, if a female fighter wins. There has been one Queen by right of arms in the SCA, in the Kingdom of Ansteorra. She defeated her husband (and consort) in the final. Several ladies have won Coronet Tourneys. The Lochac Crown Tourney in May 2003 was held in Melbourne, sponsored by the Shire of Arrowsreach at a location in Mt Evelyn. The other crown tourney was held during November, in Perth.

A couple of months later, the fighter and consort who won the tournament are invested as king and queen. This ceremony is known as Investiture, and customarily happens at 12th Night (early January) and Midwinter Coronation (held on one of the first two weekends in July). The next Midwinter Coronation is to be held in the Canton of Stowe on the Wowld, in the north-western suburbs of Sydney.
