King Lorious liked cutting heads. It was his favourite hobby in his free time in his younger years.
Really, he had a lot of free time, because people around him worked for him, so the unique thing that he had to do was to establish laws for avoiding criminal actions or against people who didn’t pay their corresponding taxes.
He got the reputation of being a wild king. His tolerance against disobedience and defiance was punished by cutting the heads of malefactors and unsavoury people.
King Lorious regretted his past as an evil king. You know, when one is young one wants to eat the world. But all that he did was for trying to get a best kingdom and to be the pride of the nation.
