All hail the queen!
Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament is getting an update later this month and having a queen rule the Central Florida castle, breaking a 34-year-old tradition.
Beginning April 19, the new role will be unveiled as part of an all-new production at the tourist destination. This character change has already be unveiled at other Medieval Times castles, including Dallas, Chicago, Lyndhurst, N.J., and Buena Park, Calif.
Other locations will get the same update later this year.
According to Medieval Times leaders, the change is the result of guest feedback on the roles that women play in the production.
“Our new female queen is a sign of the times and we couldn’t be more excited to bring her to Florida,” said Doug Dorn, general manager of Medieval Times Orlando. “The queen is fully in-charge. Her authority is sometimes challenged, but she quickly asserts herself as a strong leader."
Other enhancements at the castle includes new costumes for actors and horses, new suits of armor, shields and helmets and updated music.
