An archetypal figure, the king in your dreams represents the ultimate sense of authority. This is the part of your higher nature that governs the choices you make in your waking life. Consider the sensation around this character in the dream itself. Are you governing your life as a benevolent ruler or a cruel despot?
Control, Law, Authority Figure. Special someone in your life. In African folklore, the King is said to be “the one who holds all life, human and cosmic, in his hands; the keystone of society and the universe.” In the modern world, we may not associate the King with ultimate power, knowledge or wisdom. However, historically the mythical King was highly spiritual, was the center of the wheel of life and was said to have a regulatory function in the cosmos. Psychologically, the king and the queen are said to be the “archetypes of human perfection.” As a dream symbol, you can understand the king or queen in your dream by realizing that they represent your ability for independence, self-understanding and self-determination. They also represent inner wealth that will enable you to be your best and help you to achieve your goals. Consciously, you may never have the desire to be a king or queen, but psychologically, these figures are symbolic of our highest potential and our desire to be the “king or queen” of our own world and our own lives. On rare occasions and depending on the details of the dream, the king and queen may represent a powerful force that is unkind and tyrannical.
Dream kings are power symbols who represent a person in the dreamer’s real life, often a father, a teacher, a boss or a romantic interest.

Happiness, prestige, and prosperity are forecast in a dream of being, seeing, or meeting royalty, unless the dream had some embarrassing or unpleasant element in it, in which case it is a warning that you could be victimized by underhanded gossip, so keep your private affairs to yourself.
If your dream concerned the playing cards of this denomination, see Cards.
If you dream of seeing a king in all the royal pomp and circumstance then prestige and much success will be yours in your profession and if you are the king this shows that you will rise above your peers.

Omnipotence, power; God. Wealth of knowledge, awareness of own self-worth, recognition of inner power. Ruler of your own life; self-responsibility. How you use creative power, wisely or foolishly, is your responsibility.
One’s father; what you are ruled by; feelings of inferiority/superiority. Also in times past the king represented the group, the overall collective psyche of the people. He became synonymous with God, as the Pope is today.

The king symbolizes, in an abstract sense, the universal and archetypal man. As such, it has magical and supernatural powers. It also expresses the guiding principle, supreme conscience, the virtue of a judge, and self-control. On the other hand, the coronation means accomplishment, victory, and culmination. From here man can be named kind in the culminating instants of his existence.
If the dreamer is young, the king could represent his father or another similar figure; on the contrary, for an adult, it corresponds to the dreamer. In this case, the dream could announce that you are reaching maturity, or professional success. Carl Jung used the strange and symbolic language of the alchemists for many of his interpretations. In this sense, the king is the personification of work. Its appearance in dreams, on the other hand, could have diverse meanings.
If he is sick, it represents out of place attitudes and sometimes conflicts between reason and instinct; if he is decrepit, it signifies a limited conscience; and if he fades or comes with his mother, it is the return to the subconscious.
To appear before a friendly king is a sign of great success, and before a cruel king is very unfavourable.

[DREAM IMAGES: CHIEF; EMPEROR; LEADER; RULER]
The king is an archetype that represents the height of temporal male power and authority. He represents the father figure in your life, or the dominant ruling power—the part of you that is in control. Both benevolence and cruelty in their extreme expressions are associated with this archetype. Whether your kingdom is a corporation, community, family or your own life, such dreams suggest the need to rule compassionately.
