I really liked all of the crowns in LWW. If I had to choose one, I think it would be (characteristically) Edmund's. I don't really know if Eustace and Jill need proper coronations. After all, they have crowns in the end, and as Aslan said:

"Once a King or Queen in Narnia, always a King or Queen."

Another consideration is that, while Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy were given a coronation, they were actual Narnian rulers. Jill and Eustace were not. I think Lewis failed to give them a coronation on purpose. Do we Earthly "Kings and Queens" of God's Kingdom receive crowns before we reach Heaven? Not unless we're also Kings and Queens (specifically rulers) here.

Just my 2 cents. :)

^Good point, they weren't meant to rule, Aslan gave them the crowns as an honor or gift, not a symbol of Queen or Kingship.

When were they given crowns? They are just friends of Narnia like Diggory and Polly weren't they?

Eustace, Jill, Diggory and Polly were all given crowns when they arrived in Aslan's Country at the end of the Last Battle.

Lucy of Narnia wrote:SOMEONE MADE A CAPTION OF HIM AS A BURGER KING! They said 'the king who wants you to have it your way' or something, and I thought they'd changed his crown or something, so now every time I watch PC it's like...Burger King Crown!

;)) I might have seen it before, but I don't remember. Did you happen to have a link? :p That's hilarious.

Great thoughts, The Just King. I can't wait to see what the crowns look like in The Last Battle. I wonder if they will bring back the Pevensies' old crowns for when they're in Aslan's Country?

I'm hoping they do too, TJK. I was kind of disappointed that the crowns didn't appear in PC & VDT. Actually, what do you think happened to the crowns after the Pevensies chased the White Stag and got back into England? Do you think they were lost? Or were they found along with the Pevensies' four gifts from Father Christmas?

One would suppose that their crowns were preserved in honor, along with all the junk they had in those chests!

Do you remember in PC the dresses that Lucy held up? I'm positive it's the one they were wearing at the hunt so maybe their clothes, crowns and horses were left but even if they weren't "nothing good was destroyed in that world" so they would have to come back (PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE,PLEASE!)

I really like Lucy's crown in LWW. I love how it looks like leaves, and I love silver!

Lucy's and Edmund's crowns were definitely my favorites; especially since they were silver.

I don't think I could pick a favorite crown out of the group, they're all designed beautifully and I enjoy them all. The most interesting and important thing in the design is that the crowns reflect the characteristics of their owners. For example, Edmund's crown has birch leaves which include meanings of new beginnings and cleansing of the past (quite appropriate). I had read more on the meaning of the oak leaves in Peter's crown and the daffodils for Susan's, but I can't remember the exact meanings (they definitely do fit in though). (Hmm, I think the oak in Peter's crown represents strength courage, but I have to look back on that one). I really wish there were replicas of some kind out there for the Narnian crowns (would be soemthing nice to display for us fans).

And Jill, I don't think the dress Queen Lucy wears at the end of LWW and the one she holds up in the Treasure Chamber from PC are the same. If memory serves me correctly, the LWW dress had more redish orange tones while the one from PC had gold or bronzeish hues.

Does anyone know how to make Queen Lucy's crown? I want to make one, or at least try to, but I don't know where to begin. Any help is greatly appreciated!
Thanks! :)
