Once upon a time, there was a King… But he was no Lionheart, and the Knights at his court, all of them dressed in black, sure weren’t the Knights of the Round Table. His people rebelled. They chased the Black Knights away, and then, the only thing left to decide was what to do with the King. This time it’s not grandma telling the story, but a child. She had never heard anyone talking of Republics, presidents, let alone referendums in her world of kings, queens, princes, and princesses. Democracy, as far as many were concerned, was a dirty word. A simple, light-hearted tale about the end of the monarchy and the birth of the Republic.
