• Possibly because it was unknown to the West when the lion was, in antiquity, give that title in the West. *** Another possibility: because the male lion has a sort of "harem" and "extended family" (the "pride"), over which the lion "rules" until he is overthrown.

The adult tiger, on the other hand, is a solitary hunter.
