There is a meeting in the town square for the election of the new king due to King Aydisos' death.
You FOOLS!! There is not a man in this kingdom greater than the prince himself, ME!!
I WON?! OH YEAH!
The Winner Is Prince Arderedipus
NO! I didn't win?!!!
Arderedipus is the son of King Aydisos and and Queen Eyfidos of Kingdom Keskiropus. Arderedipus is an abandoned child who's been adopted by this royal family. He has always been an egotistic person, which causes him to fail in many cases. His fate is to fail because of his pride and ego.
Where is everyone? Why won't anyone talk to me? Is it cause of my arrogance?
Arderedipus has extreme pride. He chooses to believe that no man can approach him in terms of wisdom, not even his passed away father, King Aydisos. This characteristic of the prince cause people to hate him.
The knight announces the new king and it turns out to be him. His cousin loses the election and he becomes a laughing stock. Everyone talks about his arrogance behind his back and he has not a single clue. Arderedipus' fate had reversed and the bad fortune he was made for had not occured.
At the prince's palace, no one is there to greet him. His presence is unnoticed, making Arderedipus feel unwanted. He then realizes no one must not be talking to him because he is no longer relevant. He concludes that it must be cause of his arrogance and pride.
Queen Eyfidos left Keskiropus because of the death of her husband and her son's arrogance. It is like he has forgotten her, so she has no more to live for in the kingdom.
MOTHER!!! Why are you leaving me?!!!
Arderedipus honorably accepts his mistake with wisdom. He understands that he has brought this pain upon himself and that he must accept, which he does. He knows that his ego and arrogance has brought about this, and he lets go of these attributes forever.
I have brought this upon myself! It is no one's fault, only mine.
