A king is the male monarch of a nation. Historically these were determined primarily by hereditary succession. Depending on nation and time frame, this title was primarily passed through the eldest of the male line but exceptions to this rule could occur and disputes could arise.
Kings in the SCA
In the SCA, the choice of who will next become King is determined by victory in the Crown tournament, except in exceptional circumstances. The King uses the arms of the Kingdom, the Royal crown and other regalia for the duration of the reign.
When speaking to the King or the Queen, the proper form of address is your Majesty (or your Majesties).
