The Five Great Monarchs are the most important rulers in the magical community. They wear the five major crowns and each controls an important race or group of races. If one monarch is slain, their slayer can claim the crown for themselves and role over the corresponding kingdom. If the slayer chooses not to claim the crown, the previously appointed heir of the monarch may take it, or infighting may occur.
The Five Crowns
- The Demon King - at the beginning of the series the crown belonged to Gorgrog for a long time already. After his death at the Battle on Shoreless Isle, his eldest son, Orogoro took the crown when Kendra abandoned it.
- The Fairy Queen - throughout all books, the current position of the Fairy Queen is with the same unnamed Unicorn, who is only known as the Fairy Queen, but, in Wrath of the Dragon King, we learn from Risenmay that the current Queen is the first Fairy Queen to not be a Great Fairy. This means that the Fairies for the first time are not ruled by a Fairy.
- The Dragon King - this crown is known to have belonged to several individuals over the millennia, (the known ones are Dromadus and Horus), but most recently it is on the head of Celebrant. After his failure to take Blackwell Keep by force, there were at least two lesser Dragons who challenged him for his crown, Podenholm and Rondet. Both of them died. But, another Dragon by the name of Madrigus challenges Celebrant and for the first time injures him with an old Breath Weapon called the Seething Night.
