coronated? surely crowned or enthroned is better? Or perhaps this is a cultural/language difference thing.

Possibly -- the difficulty is knowing exactly

  • what was done


  • what (traditionally ought to have been done, in all the circumstances. The Crown, as such, was not available to her father, nor (it would seem likely) would the Throne itself have been. At this remove it looks likely that she was declared, to a "public" audience, and then locked away until she agreed to her husband being king. Which never came to pass.

Can you suggest a better word ? --Simoncursitor 09:28, 21 Jul 2005 (CDT)
