A long time ago, there was an empire. The ruler of this empire was a cruel, power-hungry man. This emperor did not care about the well-being of his people.
I'm sorry, what?!
We have found our new king!
Since the emperor was also very greedy, he taxed his people immensely. The taxes were so high most of the people were either dying from illness or slowly being killed by starvation. The others who survived all this but refused to pay the taxes were tortured by the emperor's soldiers. The emperor didn't do anything to help and one wise priest believed that this was not correct.
The priest gathered many people discuss how they could overthrow the emperor. Though there were many people who did not want to be ruled by him, they were scared he would hurt them or their families. The ones who did come weren't very strong as they didn't have much food to live on.
In the end of the meeting, they decided that they had to find a suitable candidate to be the king. They had no reassurance that he wouldn't become greedy too so the priest brought out a magical candle that would lead them to a person the gods approved of. They walked until the sun was finally starting to set. They greeted a man who was standing there and the candle finally blew itself out. They then told the man about what they needed.
He as confused at first, then scared. He didn't want to face the emperor. However, he was a man who wanted to help as many people as he could, which was why the gods chose him in the first place. After months of planning, they overthrew the cruel emperor.
The man became the new emperor. He was a kind ruler and made sure to help everyone he possibly could. No one in his empire ever starved again. To this day, people talk about how the rulers today were descendants of wise man who was chosen to rule by the gods themselves.
