XIX Nicol’s Marriage
 

My base in Cadonia was the mansion of a Cadonia nobleman who had escaped during the Stampede.
 
Since that nobleman was attacked by monsters on his escape and died, there was no worry about him coming back saying “Please return it.” It was said to be one of the largest buildings even in Cadonia, and the interior decoration was also magnificent. It was very different from the Faloon royal castle rebuilt from a fortress.
 
If I had to point out a weak point, it would probably be that artistic chairs get broken when I … Read the rest

XVIII The Princess of Cadonia
 

“The princess of Cadonia is in Mos?”
 
“Yes, we were protecting her.”
 
Georg brought me peculiar news after I’d inadvertently subjugated southern Cadonia.
 
The King of Cadonia naturally had some children, and they seemed to be fighting over the succession, but most of them escaped from Mos during the stampede. They each took refuge with their maternal noble families it seems, but the princess Rubis was the only one who remained in the castle.
 
“Princess Rubis said [When there are still citizens remaining, we alone can’t run away] and … Read the rest

XVII Suppression
 

I was born in Reem, a small village in southern Cadonia.
 
It wasn’t a village with any notable features, just one of the many settlements out there I believe.
 
This village was about halfway between Cadonia’s royal capital Mos and the Forest of Monsters. Since I was the village chief’s daughter, I got to go to Mos about once a year. Going to Mos was my greatest joy, something to boast about to the other village children.
 
Besides, we were threatened by adults that “If you do bad things, monsters will come and eat … Read the rest

XVI Stampede
 

The day came to go to Cadonia.
 
Though a neighboring country, I had barely traveled far so I was excited.
 
My escort was 50 elite members of the Hundred led by Ogma, along with 10 magicians from Frau’s direct forces.
 
Initially there was talk of knights escorting me, but when I declined saying “That many aren’t needed,” they went “I see, a small elite force!” and it became like this.
 
…Why do I feel like, from my perspective, I was hoping for a more elegant delegation with more diplomats and civil officials rather … Read the rest

XV Cadonia’s Demands
 

I received word an envoy had come from Cadonia.
 
It was my first time meeting someone from another country since my enthronement. After all, I hadn’t conducted any diplomacy at all since becoming king. Or rather, all the nobles previously in charge had died, leaving me no way to handle it.
 
Gamaras was absorbed with domestic affairs, and giving him more work would probably make him die from overwork.
 
My only job after becoming king had been fighting the Hundred at the Colosseum…. Not really a king’s job, huh.
 
So I … Read the rest

XIV A King’s Work
 

The plan to mass produce monsters began. But on second thought, what point was there to militarizing monsters as combat forces? Domestic monster damage had decreased, and no country would invade this remote little nation, so there was no use for them.
 
Maybe I should pit them against the Hundred instead?
 
Since the Colosseum opened, I had been fighting the Hundred almost daily.
 
That was because during my fight against the adventurers in the throne room where I removed my gravity bracelet and poison ring and got serious, it leaked to … Read the rest

XIII Ruida the Priest
 

 
Two men were fighting in front of a large audience.
 
One had short cropped blond hair and a chiseled face—Ogma, 1st rank of the Hundred. The other was his friend Bruno, ranked around 5th if I remember right. How to put it, Bruno was bigger and more muscular than Ogma, but with an innocent face more fitting for a farmer.
 
Since Bruno wavered between 5th and 8th rank, I didn’t recall exactly, while Ogma stayed firmly 1st. That made him easy to remember.
 
The two were locked in fierce combat. Watching … Read the rest

XII Arena
 

 
Gamaras had been rapidly reforming the Faloon Kingdom, but he had some concerns.
 
Although the national treasury was currently flush with assets seized from nobles, Faloon was originally a poor country. It was like a breakwater against the Forest of Monsters, with little industry of its own.
 
No matter how much Gamaras reformed politics or improved economic efficiency, the economy would not thrive if there was little circulation of goods. At this rate, the country would reach an impasse.
 
But while Gamaras was an excellent politician, he was no brilliant merchant. He hadn’t … Read the rest

XI. Succession to the Throne
 

I had thought, “I just need to easily slash and kill Gamaras, and it’ll all be over,” but then Ogma and the others called out when they entered the throne room.
 

 
“Zeross, we’ve disposed of all the nobles. Only Gamaras remains.”
 

 
Disposed of them all? Killed every noble?
 
I was dumbfounded by the HUNDRED’s deeds. While the nobles were certainly unsavory, they still had their uses. Managing bureaucrats and territories were the nobles’ roles.
 
How did these guys expect to govern the country without nobles present?
 

While … Read the rest

X. A man named Gamaras
 

 
How did it come to this?
 
As Prince Mars drew near, Gamaras recalled the events leading up to this moment.
 

 
15 years ago, when the former queen and her relatives had been tyrannical, Gamaras, who was the prime minister at the time, stood up against them.
 
The wasteful finances, the abuse of personnel for personal gain, the reign of terror where any dissenters were executed.
 
Gamaras felt this path would lead to the ruin of the Kingdom of Faloon. Despite being an excellent politician, he had no choice … Read the rest
