Often called "last court". And, at least in AEthelmearc, the outgoing king 
always crowns the incoming king with accompaning ceremony.

(and, much to my heraldic dismay, the 3rd piece of business in court 
[1=crown new king, 2=crown new queen] is making the outgoing couple 
counts/countesses/dukes/duchesses. In my mind, the crown hitting the head 
is only the first step, you aren't really king and queen until the peers 
and populace recognize you, and the baronage swears its fealty. Once that's 
over with THEN you do your first piece of awards business -- which should 
rightly be the royal patents for the outgoing couple. Note this is all "in 
AEthelmearc", your kingdom may vary).
