THE LION IS THE UNIVERSAL SYMBOL OF ROYAL POWER.
Through history, Kings wanted to be associated with the strongest and the optimum warrior symbol.
"Not only is the lion a symbol of royalty, but it is sometimes associated with the words denoting a King. Thus, the Latin leo is derived from the same root as rex and lex; the Persian schir (lion) appears to be connected with the Zend and Sanskrit khshéko, khschakia (king) which gave its name to the warrior cast of the Hindus; while as is the Semitic term for "lion" and Ra was not only the name of the sun-god among both Egyptians and the Babylonians, but it was the title given by the Egyptians to the king (...) kings wear sometimes lion skins (...) the lion was a symbol of strength and victory". - The Evolution of Morality, Vol. 2, Charles Staniland Wake, 1878, p. 324.
This involves the association of the majority of early civilizations and beyond such Mesopotamian, Egyptians, Greco-Roman (other Latin-based languages) and antique India to the lion as a symbol of kingship power not only base on historical facts but also of the base of the meaning of the language root words; showing a deep foundation of the king of the beasts symbol of power in these different civilizations.
We should not be surprising the allegedly oldest animal artefact is a lion-man. It is believed before Mesopotamian first civilization the lion was the earliest human symbol of power (found in Germany a brown bear land).
