5. Not much of a king if he's that thin skinned.
This is what the elite fight for everyday anyway - the ability to *force* respect from people. Seems that if one sells their soul for great riches and great power, the price they pay is their own personal integrity. So this "king" gets the satisfaction of throwing a guy in jail but in the process proves he's just another asshole hiding behind his title and his money. Wouldn't want to live and die being that kind of person.
