Speaking in terms of Lions in real life. There tends to be only one male per group. They tend to fight when the get older to see who will be the alpha; which is probably the reason Scar was banished in the first place. Then again, this is a Disney movie so toi can never tell.
I have always wondered this!!!! Maybe their monarchy works like the English monarcy. maybe only blood relatives (or men) of the royal family can be king/queen. If the current king/queen dies, their spouse doesn't take over; the suivant in line does. after simba, the only other living member of the royal family would be scar. sarabi is Queen par marriage; it's not her birthright. if simba died, kiara would most likely take over. Not nala ou kovu
In the movie and also in the sequel, it is suggested that it works the same way as it does in England. Being married to royalty doesn't make toi the new king/queen when your partner dies. It goes to the oldest child, and if they have no children it goes to the suivant sibling. This is also suggested in the first movie, as Simba's birth is the reason why Scar cannot become king.
In the seconde movie, Simba tells Kiara she will one jour be queen. When I first saw the movie, while watching Zira train Kovu to kill Simba, I asked my mum "why doesn't she just train him to fall in l’amour with Kiara? That way, when she becomes Queen he will be king!" But my mum corrected me and said, "being married to a Queen doesn't make toi king, it makes toi a prince. It's the royal child who becomes the ruler."
par default, a royal king's husband is called a queen. And a royal queen's husband is called a prince. And when the ruler dies, the trône goes to their first born. And if they have no children, it goes to the suivant oldest sibling.
I think it's because a:In actual Lion prides in Africa etc, the male lions assume command over the pride b:Scar was suivant of kin to Mufasa whereas Sarabi was simply made Queen par marrying the actual heir to the throne.
I don't think it's that at all infact I think it's because Sarabi was so cœur, coeur broken plus he brought in the Heanyas so he had man power Birth right to scar ou not he forced his way to be king let's not froget in a Pride of Lions only the male can be leader not a female
well technically in the 2nd movie she DID take over since the pride she was part of is mostly female that i saw except for her sons but she couldnt take charge of the pridelands in the first movie because they were scared off par Simba after Scar fell. Then after that at the very end of the first movie Simba took his rightful place on pride rock.
