The Northern Crown Cloth is one of Bronze Cloth.

MythologyEdit

The Corona Borealis constellation was sometimes considered to represent a crown that was given by the god Dionysus to Ariadne, the daughter of King Minos of Crete. When she was abandoned by the hero Theseus on the isle of Naxos, Dionysus found the princess and, falling in love with her, the two married, although Ariadne was never made a goddess. Upon her death, Dionysus placed the crown he'd given her on their wedding day among the stars.

At other points, the crown was considered to belong, in a sense, to Boötes, the herdsman.

In Welsh mythology, the Northern Crown was called Caer Arianrhod, "the Castle of the Silver Circle," and was the heavenly abode of the Lady Arianrhod, the antagonistic mother of the mythic king Lleu Llaw Gyffes. Subjected to a special test of virginity by King Math, Arianrhod fails it, instantly giving birth to two sons, one named Dylan, and the other unnamed. Humiliated, she took her anger out on her youngest child, placing three curses (tynghedau) on him. For the first curse, he could never have a name unless Arianrhod gave him one; he is aided by his uncle Gwydion, who tricks Arianrhod into giving him the name Llew Llaw Gyffes. For the second curse, he could not have armor and weaponry unless Arianrhod provides him with such; she is again tricked by her brother into giving Lleu these items. Furious, Arianrhod places a final curse on Lleu: that he shall never be able to marry a human woman. To counter this curse, Gywdion uses magic to craft a woman from wildflowers as a wife for Lleu, although this later ends in tragedy for the son of Arianrhod. 

The Cheyenne nation of Native Americans called it the "Camp Circle" as they arranged their camps in a semicircle. The Australian natives called this constellation as Womera "the boomerang", caused by the arrangement of the stars.
