Can a queen make her husband king
Is there a reason a queen's husband isn't called a king?
There are two types of queens. A consort is a king's wife. A queen regnant is a ruler herself, a "queen" of yours.
According to the above, the husband of a wife is only the king. But the husband of a queen regnant is a prince consort. "Prince" is one step below King and the title of Consort is below that of Queen.
Queen Elizabeth II is a Queen Regnant who inherited the title from her father, King George VI, and therefore her husband Philip is a Prince Consort.
There are instances when the King of Country A marries the Queen Regnant of Country B (e.g. King Philip of Spain and Queen Mary of England). Then the husband is commonly referred to as "king" because he is what he is himself country (A). But he is really a "Prince Consort" in Country B.
There is also something called a crown marriage, in which a queen regnant gives her husband "equal" (royal) powers through her marriage (marriage). The Swedish Queen Ulrike Eleonora did this in the 18th century. But this is rare and de facto a form of "abdication".
