Kings and Queens

A King or Queen is a person who is currently reigning over a kingdom. They are addressed as "Your Majesty" or "Your Royal Majesty" and referred to in the third person as "King/Queen (given name)." They may wear a crown to indicate their rank. The gender neutral terms referring to the King and Queen are Sovereign and Consort. The Sovereign is the person who won the crown tournament, and the consort is the person for whom they fought. The male is always King, but may not necessarily be the sovereign. They are referred to collectively as The Crown.

Royalty is claimed through "Right of Arms" (armored combat). Kings and Queens are selected twice a year at the Spring and Fall Crown Tournaments. Once a combatant wins the Crown Tournament, he or she becomes the Heir Apparent (the Crown Prince and/or Princess). This means when the reigning King and Queen step down, they will be next to be crowned King and Queen, at which time they will rule for approximately six (6) months.
