The Father: The royal line must continue, even if the current heir is incapable of siring a child. A solution must be found.
Content Warning: Adultery, Impregnation
Royal Sins: With the one surviving heir a man-child married to a foreign princess, the royal line is in jeopardy. For the seventeen years it will take for a new heir to be born and take the throne, the old king and the princess regent walk a tightrope. One slip will bring war. In public, they must be unimpeachable. In private, duty will require sacrifices of honour, and of body.
