Talk:Pegasus Kingdom

From Equestripedia, the Archives of Equestria!

Was the term "Pegasus Kingdom" actually used in story? There was never any indication that the ancient Pegasi had a king, so it seems like another name might be more appropriate if this one isn't official.--EmeraldBlitz (talk) 08:32, 14 September 2021 (UTC)

They do refer to it as the Pegasus Kingdom, yes. I think the implication is that the writers either forgot or assume the target audience don't know that other forms of monarchies exist and so everything is just the "X Kingdom" or "X Empire".--Amelia (talk) 12:59, 15 September 2021 (UTC)
Well, with the Rarity's Retro Redux event going on, I actually have a couple of theories as to how a Pegasus Kingdom could be accurate. It could be that the ancient Pegasi did in fact live in a kingdom, but the position of king may have become a title of no real authority, with Hurricane being top dog as leader of the military. Alternatively, if Timbucktu and Hurricane's Pegasi were considered part of the same tribe, then Hurricane may have been a stand-in ruler after the fall of that city to the Changelings. Celestia and Luna's advent meant that the Pegasi never chose a new monarch-until, apparently, some time before the events of My Little Pony: A New Generation.--EmeraldBlitz (talk) 10:14, 24 September 2021 (UTC)
