Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.



Here I go again:

You are the prince or princess of a vast, powerful and wealthy empire. Your father is the emperor and he is dying. You are second in line to inherit the throne while your older sibling is first. Your dying father wants you to rule the nation and not your older sibling. Your older sibling will make a terrible ruler in your father's eyes while you'll make a great one. What do you do in this situation?

Enjoy!!!

Take the throne and establish a dynasty and heirs.

Accept but tell him that I have no interest to wear the crown for long, and I will find someone who's more befitting of the role.

Who says a teenager can't be emporer?!

My Father, well my adoptive one anyway ( God rest his soul) would never ask this of me in the first place. I am many things, a fighter, a soldier, a loyal friend, a poor poet, and an even worse idealist. But what I am not is a leader of men, my words and wisdom do not move anyone nor do I appeal to the masses.

If he had been in a position to offer such a thing to me I would have declined. Rulership does not suit my talents nor desire .

I'd accept and try to rule in his place and hire counselors to help me rule effectively. Although I don't think I'd make a good leader.

The only beauty here is the truth. Anyone who knows me knows the only thing I am fit to command are other soldiers. The weight of a golden crown is something my head was never meant to bear.

There is no shame in admitting that nature did not equip you for the demands of power and leadership. Though I suppose I would not want to serve under an unworthy ruler. But then again every soldier wants their commander to be worthy of the title.

I'd try to rule it and satisfy his wishes and ideals, and even if I fail, then at the very least I tried.

If my people get mad and rebel, I 'll tell them "It's a prank, chill bros"

I'll do it. I'm a kind man. I would try very hard to empathize with and understand my people. I'm going to put my people before myself. I know personally what it's like to be poor (dirt poor). Although I guess I wouldn't know poverty in this hypothetical situation unless my father was in poverty before he was king. Either way I try to understand peoples views and opinions and I try to respect them. I'm certainly not gonna mess around when so many people are counting on me. I'd be sure to have quite an approval rating. I'll talk to the people personally. I'll invite them to speak with me. Some crazy person is very likely to try and assassinate me although I'd most likely form a secret service to prevent that.

I guess I'll be the queen then.

Actually you'll be empress which is higher than a queen.
