King Stephen of England had his coronation on Christmas Day, December 25, 1141 at Canterbury Cathedral.      
This was the second coronation for Stephen.          
He first had been crowned King of England on December 26, 1135 at Westminster Abbey.      
Do you think there is significance in the date that the sovereign chooses for his Coronation Day?

And?

And the answer given is: the era context is.. that this was before the dissolution of the church by Hank the 8th. And interdiction and excommunication were still powerful tools.

Consequently the authority of coronations still lay with the church; and the usual-norm, was to select days of commemoration of rulers...saints.. notable church events...feast days... etc.. considered 'good' representatives of the Church. For the coronation event.

Subsequently replaced by the establishment of coronation commissions.

Albeit many years later.

Had it still been the purview of the RCC... it would have been the feast day of 'St.Marcellinus and Peter', among others, when 'Liz the deuce' donned the purple.

Amen.

On October 25, 1154 Henry II became King of England.      
Eleanor of Aquitaine was crowned Queen of England by the Archbishop of Canterbury on December 19, 1154.       
She may not have been anointed on this occasion, however, because she had previously been anointed in 1137.

Matilda of Boulogne was the wife of King Stephen of England.    
Matilda's own coronation at Westminster Abbey at Easter 1136 was an important step in reinforcing her husband's status.              
She was the second English queen to descend directly from the Anglo-Saxon royal line after her aunt Matilda of Scotland.     
Since Stephen's claim was bolstered by his wife's heritage, her own connections were significant in lending him legitimacy.

George IV of Great Britain fixed July 19, 1821 for his coronation.      
This date has significance because George IV was determined that his coronation would be a one-man show.      
His wife Caroline's name had been removed from the prayers to be said at the coronation ceremony.      
Caroline was prevented from entering Westminster Abbey.

Henry VII reigned as Holy Roman Emperor from June 29, 1312 to August 24, 1313.     
His coronation occurred on June 29, 1312 in Rome.     
This is significant because June 29th is the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul.

Henry VIII of England and his first Queen Consort, Catherine of Aragon were crowned at Westminster Abbey on June 24, 1509.    
What is significant about the June 24th date is that six years previously, one day later, on June 25, 1503 the betrothal of Catherine of Aragon and Prince Henry occurred.

Henry II was Holy Roman Emperor from 1014 until 1024.      
Henry II agreed to return Benedict VIII to his papal throne in return for his coronation as Emperor.   
On February 14, 1014, the Pope crowned Henry II as Holy Roman Emperor.    
This is significant because February 14th is Saint Valentine's Day.
