* The ''Fanfic/AnAstralDropInHeatherfield'' appears to subvert this in the first attempt to crown Elyon ([[spoiler: It's a trap by Phobos being sprung by an imposter]]) but it's later played straight.

* Averted on 18 January 1871 when King Wilhelm I of Prussia was proclaimed German emperor near the conclusion of the [[FrancoPrussianWar Franco-German War]]. After the military defeat of France resulted in the fall of the French Second Empire and its replacement by the Third Republic, it was almost as if the German princes decided that they needed to pick up on the "Emperor" slack. They proclaimed Wilhelm in the Palace of Versailles, just to let the French know that they had been owned pretty hard and as a TakeThat to King Louis XIV. However, the ceremony was a pretty low-key affair (and a lot less glamorous than the later painting by Anton von Werner) as the war was still going on and the palace in Versailles was still being used as a military hospital. There also was no formal imperial coronation afterwards, nor even an actual imperial crown. This was in part because the new German Empire eschewed any connection to the old HolyRomanEmpire, which had been dissolved in 1806 (the fact that the crown and other insignia of the rulers of the Holy Roman Empire were in the possession of the emperor of Austria in Vienna did not help). Also, considering that the mere title of the new emperor had been such a contentious issue (they eventually settled on "German Emperor", not "Emperor of Germany" or "Emperor of the Germans"), it seems likely that they decided that agreeing on and performing an actual coronation ceremony was not worth the trouble and expense.
