The practice of wearing crowns goes back thousands of years. The ancient Persian kings wore crowns and "diadems," or jeweled bands worn on the head. The ancient Egyptians had two crowns, one for Lower Egypt (the "Deshret"), one for Upper Egypt (the "Hedjet"), which were combined to form the Pschent, the crown of all of Egypt. The Roman Emperor Constantine I adopted the practice of wearing a crown, and it became a tradition among all Roman Emperors after him. After the fall of Rome, European kings, queens, and emperors of all stripes wore crowns, as does the Pope and several other religious leaders.
Jeweled headgear made of precious metals has also been popular in Asia for thousands of years, though the origins there are less clear, and crowns of a sort, decorated with skins, feathers, or even plant life, are popular the world over. What binds all of these fancy hats together is they all symbolize power that comes from a position or title.
