A crown was the traditional symbolic form of headgear worn by a monarch or by a deity, for whom the crown traditionally represented power, legitimacy, victory, triumph, honour, and glory, as well as immortality, righteousness, and resurrection. Crowns worn by rulers often contained jewels.
Behind the scenes
- In the first screenplay draft of At World's End, before the Black Pearl arrives to Shipwreck Cove, Hector Barbossa and Tia Dalma summon a mermaid who offers them a crown as payment for Barbossa's services to Tia Dalma.
- In a production draft of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Jack Sparrow steals a golden bejeweled crown from a display case in St. James's Palace. When he goes outside the palace, Jack hides behind one of the Royal buntings that spans the street before the crown falls onto the cobblestone, drawing the attention of Royal Guards on the street below.
