Why isn't this "who may the king crown"?

"Wie" is in the first position, so it's the subject. I'm not sure if it sounds weird, but I guess "who may the king crown?" would either be "Wie mag door de koning gekroond worden?" (who may be crowned by the king?") or "De koning mag wie kronen?"

I put "Wie mag er de koning kronen?" and find that the "er" is not accepted. How do I know when to use "er" in a "Wie" question?

Nobody may crown the Dutch king. He wasn't crowned, but sworn in. He took an oath on the constitution. The crown stayed on a red velvet cushion all the time!
