To dream of a king represents an aspect of your personality that is in control, all powerful, or always gets its way. A king in a dream represents a personality trait you have that is totally confident, unstoppable, or doesn’t feel the need to care about anything at all. A dominant figure or head of the family. Feeling authoritative. Making your own decisions. Expecting “royal treatment.” Fierce independence.
Negatively, a king may reflect an arrogant need for total control or difficulty giving up total power. Feelings about someone controlling in your life being tyrannical or impossible to deal with. Feeling that something is challenging your leadership. Imposing control on others. You or someone else that is too assertive. Thinking that you are too important or the most important in a situation. Feeling intimidated by a dominant person.
If a King dies in a dream it may represent a loss of confidence in some area of your life. You may also notice that a person in your life that always gets its way is no longer able to. Total power becoming or authority being impotent.
A symbol that can be both good or bad depending on who the king is and what he does.
Example: A man dreamed of feeling that he didn’t want to appear as a King when he was one. In waking life he didn’t want to appear too assertive and dominant in a social situation with someone more passive than he was.
Example 2: A young man dreamed of hearing a story about King and all the good and bad things he had done. In waking life he was reconsidering a friendship with a friend who kept borrowing money off him. He felt his friend was a little too dominant and controlling while also being too needy.
Example 3: A man dreamed of seeing a king about to die. In waking life he was very ill and grew dependent on others after spending much of his life being strong and healthy.
