Trivia

The crown of fire and the three swords are found in a cave inside a huge rock formation shaped as a human head. This natural rock formation in Romania, known as the Sphinx of Bucegi Mountains, stands eight meters high and 12 meters wide and is located at an altitude of 2216 meters (7270 feet) in Romania's Bucegi Mountains. Local legends have it that the human head-shaped rock resembles that of a Dacian warrior, Dacians being the tribe that inhabited the area many centuries ago. See more »

General view of the movie quality
7 August 2000 | by coman_andreiSee all my reviews

Ok, this is my first ever review. The movie in cause, the "Coroana de foc" have the best title that could be ever found because it is representing the great responsability that is on the shoulders of one nation's ruler. As all the other movies of Sergiu Nicolaescu, the costumes are excelent created, the action is very good directed and the fighting scenes are extremely realistic and dramatic. This movie must be seen.
