In most of the avatars Laksmi devi is the consort of Lord, why not Radharani?

Q. In almost all avatars it has been that Lakshmi is the consort of the Lord. For example, whether be it mother Sita or Visnupriya or Padmavati (Lord Venkateswara’s consort); but not Radharani. Why is it that way?

A. As Krishna is the original personality of Godhead, so Srimati Radharani is His hladini sakti manifestation or His eternal consort.

Since Narayana in Vaikuntha is an expansion of Krishna, we can say that Lakshmi is also an expansion of Srimati Radharani.

For that matter, all the godesses of fortune in the spiritual realm are manifestations of Srimati Radharani. We can identify the particular consort of the Supreme Lord by a particular nomenclature also.

For example Sita is the consort of Lord Rama.
Ramadevi (found in Sri Brahma Samhita) is the consort of Maha Visnu.

Each of the expansions of the Supreme Lord have their consorts or energetic expansions.

They go by various names but the original Personality of Godhead is Krishna and His eternal consort is Srimati Radharani.
