To be blunt: I personally feel she would look about as dippy as the
crowned lion on old(er)  English/Scottish shillings (1930s somewhen).
Dragon has a bit of a flat head, and the crown would fall off. And anyway,
_everyone_ knows dragons sleep on gold, not wear it on their heads! ;) If
you really must, I can coronify Dragon for you.

At least you didn't ask for a two headed dragon!
