EM-Drabbles – Forty-Five

The king of Fronark had five brave sons, the most worthy of whom would inherit the kingdom.

The five spent their time seeking to impress, riding out to jousts and tourneys, annexing land into the kingdom, and rescuing princesses. As the king aged they became more competitive travelling far and wide to win renown.

In the hour when the enemy attacked the king was on his deathbed and there were no princes on hand. Only the overlooked princess who ran the country while her brothers were at play. She organised the defence, defeated the invaders – and became Queen of Fronark.
