To bring Vashti the queen before the king
Not against her will, or by force; but they were sent to let her know it was the king's pleasure that she should come to him immediately:
with the crown royal;
that is, upon her head, to make her look the more grand and majestic:
to show the people and the princes her beauty;
for she was fair to look upon; which was not wisely done, neither was it comely nor safe.
