The King ruled wisely and fairly, but his time on this land ran out: Death came after him. But the will of The King was so strong that he could deny Death. He grew so proud that he humiliated Death itself. The idea of overwhelming power and immortality didn’t leave his mind. The King realized that power over the living was not enough for him.
