I've found that to win any credit at the coronation ceremony takes huge sacrifices, and frequently we don't have that much wealth to throw away (if we did, we'd have made a run at becoming king!). So now I usually choose another just seems safer.  Maybe this hurts our reputation, I don't know, but it never seems to come up in comments.
