Gay lions are called "Queens of the Jungle" if that helps.

I think it has more to do with culture and etymology than physiological traits. The lion is the king of the jungle, because that's what its name means.

Quote:The lion traditionally symbolizes royalty, and rulers. Greek leon was sometimes translated as 'king' (rex) from Greek into Latin, because the lion is the king of all the beasts. [4]. Regulus is the alpha star of Leo, from Latin rex, "king", from the Indo-European root *reg-, 'To move in a straight line, with derivatives meaning to direct in a straight line, lead, rule. right just, correct, straight'.

On a side note, in Scandinavia the moose is known as the King of The Forest so there's a lot of royalty roaming the wildernesses.

Now we're getting somewhere,but I still dont see where and how lions and jungles have meaningfully come together to be accepted all over the world when they dont even live in jungles,while tigers actually do live in jungles and could maul a lion any day of the week,but are called the kings of nothing,well maybe the kings of wishful thinking?! (*-*)

The answer should be quite clear actually .

The Smug indifference that lions exude , is a natural characteristic of all persona's
holding themselves above others .

Even the Class Clown of the Jungle : The Chimpanzee ( Considered the Court Jester of the
jungle ) ,,,,,,,,,, has the sense to recognize that as a Royal attribute .


pointedly ,,,, it's a no brainer

Ccaptured and caged after killing a village woman...

Like wow damn what the F#$%$#$%$#$%K! just listen to it!

No human would stand a chance against this savage focused beast...

Actually i dont think any other living thing could either...

Tigers are so fearless they're not afraid to attack elephants!

Maybe the Lion is chosen as the king of the jungle because nobody wants a king that basically wants to tear you to pieces at first sight.

What Are the Qualities of a Good King?

The qualities of a good king include: fair rule or judgment, compassion, courage, strength, exemplary leadership skills, generosity, respect and restraint. Other qualities include having wisdom and integrity as well as good or strong decision making skills.

They aren't called kings of the jungle. They are called the king of beasts.

Well lions have been called both of those phrases for a long time although in reality they are neither and actually either the orca killer whales or great white sharks are kings and queens of the oceans and tigers are kings and queens of the land with grizzly and polar bears and lions maybe all tied for second place and within the air the kings and queens are probable eagles while evil humans are the executioners of them all and of each other...
