    Chow 150 :: Queen's Consort


    ROUND #150 :: QUEEN'S CONSORT
    DESCRIPTION

    Round 150 Special!!

    Well guys, we've made it! 150 rounds of Chow!

    This round is open. Basically, this is a lead-up to Round 200 and our new queen. Every Queen needs a consort... who will yours be?

    (If you want some ideas for how to tackle this round, check out round #99 - Herald to the Queen.)


    --- Thanks to Posh for The Extra Definition That Follows (In Case You Were Confused) : ---

    This is Rumor Control. Here are the facts! (Al la Wikipedia... ahem)

    A consort is a spouse or companion, often of royalty or a deity, sometimes slightly inferior in function/status.

    * Queen consort, wife of a reigning king
    * King consort, husband of a reigning queen
    * Prince consort, possible title for husband of a reigning princess; alternative title for husband of a reigning queen
    * Princess consort, wife of a reigning prince; alternative title for wife of a reigning king

    A good example of a Queen's consort is Prince Albert who married Queen Victoria. He was never King, but was her partner in all things otherwise, and very important politically.

    The topic is open for interpretation.

    EDIT: If you want to see what people got up to in ChOW99 The Herald, have look here:

    HERALD 1

    HERALD 2

    C'mon chaps... it's not really that hard. Imagine your queen and her partner, spouse, significant other, boyfriend etc, and design the male half of that relationship. It doesn't have to be based on Jessibean's queen either. With the next queen due at ChOW 200 this is a chance to anticipate that. A queens chum! That's all. Exercise those creative muscles. It's open so you can decide completely what they look like, however I would keep the character human... ish... and to a degree, regal in some way.

    Make the most of it as next week we'll probably make it reeeaaal tough! Maybe...

    So Queen's Consort, essentially means the king?

    By definition a Queens Consort is: the title given to the wife of a reigning king.

    References: Wikipedia | Webster

    The title seems to imply that this "consort" belongs to the queen.. so ... someone who hangs out with the queen and is on her level? Not sure. Reference thread.

    Gah I wasn't going to enter this round but now...I might have a stab at it.

    And wikipedia also says: A consort is a spouse or companion, often of royalty or a deity, sometimes slightly inferior in function/status.

    So I guess it could be the king, but doesn't necessarily have to be...

    has the queen been elected yet?

    i mean is the consort supposed to blend in alongside a sf , a fantasy, a realistic queen, etc. ? or, is it up 2 us?

    Yeah, I'm a little confused too. I found info on a Queen Consort, a woman who marries the reigning king, with no real political power only a title and social influence. But nothing on the Queen's Consort. Do we want it to be the man who marries the reigning Queen, again no power, only social influence and a title? Either way this will be an interesting round.

    Hm for those of you who are confused: A Queen's consort is indeed the guy (or girl, that might make things complicated...) who marries the queen but has no official royal title or real power. Like, he's a king and is treated as such, but can't make any decisions. Should make for a very interesting character I think

    Lake7less: It says right up top the topic is open, so yeh...

    Remember the companion part as well. A consort does not necessarily need to be married to the reigning person, it might also be a lover for a longer periode. I've heard it used both in addition to a spouse and when not having a spouse.

    I think that it can be used for the person in a harem (male or female ) that has had the reignings persons attention the most over the years, as in the favourite or "first wife" or "first husband" too.....

    Hmm, interesting. I'm slightly confused still...

    Am I:

    Designing the husband of the Queen? - I'm thinking it's this one.
    A friend, not quite husband?

    Difficult round. Always is when it's basically wide open. I'm not one for freedom. Lol!

    Two current examples:

    Queen of England: Elizabeth is the reigning queen. She has the power. Her husband is Prince Philip and he does not have the same rights or power as she does. She is the one keeping updated on the inner workings of the MI5 (Think James Bond) and so on. England is ruled by a politicians, but she still has some power.

    Queen of Denmark: Margrethe is the Queen, and her husband is Prince Henri (originally French diplomat). He thought he would marry her and become King. He was sadly mistaken and later complained to the media. He has no power. She doesn't have much either, but she still outranks him by miles.

    One day Sweden will have a Queen. She is getting married now, to a fitness trainer. Just got engaged. He will also become a Prince.

    These princes/ husbands, must always walk one step behind their wife, as a sign of their inferior status. She speaks. He is allowed to speak.

    Different men react differently to this. Some are strong enough to deal with it, others ... are not. The queens are also different.

    I'm tidying up (Feng Shui Space Clearing big style - lol) and have a lot to do, at the moment. Should sit this one out.

    Pretty neat topic. Just so I have a final clarification, there is no genre assigned? Like you could go sci-fi, cyberpunk, fantasy, reality, etc?

    Sorry if this is a repeat question...

    This round has so much potential!

    Is he the Queen's military muscle, ridiculously canny political ally, boy-toy, sugar daddy, foreign arm-candy, baby-provider? And that says nothing about his personality outside of his 'role'. Does he actually participate in a partnership with his wife and play an active part in running the 'country' or is he happy to let Queenie do the hard work while he gambles, drinks or sees his 'special friend'? Do he and the queen even like each other or is this just a political marriage?

    Sounds like fun and I can't wait to see what people come up with!

    posh i think all the confusion is in the actual description, there seems to be a contradiction. From my understanding, the queens concort is simply the husband or betroved to the reigning queen. But in the top section you have written : Queens concort, wife of reigning king, shouldnt that actually say queens concort, husband of reigning queen?

    i just looked in wikepidia, and found this, i think a better discription would be guinivere would be concidered the queen consort to king arthur.

    A queen consort is the title given to the wife of a reigning king. Queens consort usually share their husbands' rank (in salic or semi-salic law monarchies) and hold the feminine equivalent of their husbands' monarchical titles. Most of the time, however, they have no real power.

    Joey - Ok, I think we are to draw the (guy or gal) who is the consort of the Queen of CHOW 200 that has NOT been given yet. That's why it is open.

    Like the description says, Like PRINCE Albert. He was married to QUEEN victoria. But he didn't have all her power.

    I hope I didn't add to the confusion.

    Great topic. Here's a quick sketch. I think I'm gonna go for a bored elf king. In the space on the right, will be the shadow of the Queen who's standing up.
    I need to make him more royal still, but this is the general direction I'd like to go in.

    I like how I read the title and interpreted it as the Queen's... *cough* escort. Guess it's something else.
    Hrm, maybe I'll have to dive into this one.
