Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A coronet is a small crown consisting of ornaments fixed on a metal ring. Unlike a crown, a coronet never has arches. The word stems from the Old French coronete, a diminutive of co(u)ronne ("crown"), itself from the Latin corona (also "wreath"). Traditionally, such headgear is - as indicated by the German equivalent Adelskrone (literally "crown of nobility") - used by nobles and by princes and princesses in their coats of arms, rather than by monarchs, for whom the word crown is customarily reserved in formal English, while many languages have no such terminological distinction. Other than a crown, a coronet shows the rank of the respective noble. Hence, in German language there is also the term Rangkrone.show more
