A crown is a headgear worn by royalty, namely Kings or Queens. Princes, princesses, lords, and ladies also adorn themselves with crowns. Crowns are commonly worn during ceremonies, celebrations and other formal events. The crown usually represents power and rule, with its size and the ornateness of its design signifying either the status of the wearer or the nature of the event to which it is worn (ie: 1- Arthur's circlet as a prince was lighter and not as decorated as his crown as King of Camelot, 2- The crown Uther wore for everyday wear was smaller and less ornate than his ceremonial crown). The crowns worn by women are generally thinner than those worn by men, excepting, of course, the crowns worn by the two Queens of Camelot, Morgana and Guinevere. Thin crowns, particularly those made of a delicate chain and precious gems or crafted from an elegant strip of precious metal, like gold, are worn primarily by women (though men, particularly princes, can wear similar, though less dainty, crowns) and are referred to as "circlets".
