The Grand Prince Has Run Away - Chapter 86
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
As we entered the Imperial Palace under the guidance of the Duke of Brendel, the military bands lined up blew their trumpets all at once. Soon after, the sky of the imperial palace was decorated with colorful fireworks from the magic cannon that was fired, and some of the young nobles who came out to receive them cheered to the point of deafening their ears.
As I was walking along the red carpet with Shura, I saw a young knight standing guard and frowned slightly.
It was an unknown person who appeared casually in a short story of my life, but I suddenly remembered it. The author died in a miserable state in front of me on the day that the golden castle fell on the hordes of monsters.
‘I can’t even remember this.’
The dark memories that once came to mind continued to encroach on my mind. An old noble who is cheering now was the one I left behind on the day I escaped from the capital, and the Duke of Brendel, who went ahead, bravely went out to fight and was surrounded by monsters and never saw it again.
It seemed like he was good at going to Kara. Kara had no connection with my previous life, so she was free from these bad memories.
After a while, the marching procession stopped. Suddenly waking up from my thoughts, I looked towards the door leading into the Imperial Palace building. There, his father, Archduke Charles, was there to meet him.
“Great Lady of Yin and Yang. Welcome to. My name is Archduke Karl, Grand Chancellor of the Yosrahim Empire.”
“My name is Shura. I hope to go along well.”
Shura was more polite than ever. On the other hand, he is the father-in-law.
After greeting Shura, my father looked at me with a very bright expression. It was his father’s bright face he had never seen before. I was awkward and scratched the bridge of his nose.
“Are you the white-faced Kaoyan?”
“I have heard of your reputation. It’s great to break that Duke of Bastein.”
I interrupted the conversation with a calm and short tone. is the father There was nothing good about letting your voice be heard for a long time.
Father shook his head and led us to Daejeon.
“Then come over here, Great Saint Lady.”
I followed behind with a face as calm as possible. Passing through a familiar hallway, another familiar red door appeared. When the door decorated with gold with the sun and moon opened, Daejeon, like a wide-open space, was revealed.
Big and small gods with familiar faces lined up left and right. They respectfully paid our respects as we entered.
“I see you, Great Saint Lady.”
I looked at the throne in front of me. The seat was empty. But soon, with the cry of a knight announcing the emperor’s coming, his maternal uncle appeared.
It’s quicker than usual.
No matter how far they tried to distance themselves from the yin and yang denominations, they didn’t seem to have the strength to keep the Great Saint Lady waiting for a long time.
“Glory be to His Majesty the Emperor! Long live the Yosrahim Empire!”
Behind the familiar slogan, his maternal uncle sat on the throne. As we knelt down on one knee, his maternal uncle waved his hand.
“No. Even though I am the emperor, I cannot bring down the great saint.”
This is the first Haoche I have ever heard from my maternal uncle. No matter how much his maternal uncle was the emperor, it seemed that he had no choice but to treat the great saint who was the same level as the pope with respect.
Moreover, the owner of the Dalahan must treat him as a great guest of the empire, in the will of the founding emperor. If he is neglected, his maternal uncle will become an impertinent emperor who violated the traditions of his ancestors.
“Thank you for your consideration.”
“By the way, didn’t you have any discomfort all night?”
“I’m happy. I told my servants to take good care of them, but they were very worried.”
My maternal uncle did not have any religious discourse, only very trivial and ordinary conversations. They were skillfully walking a tightrope between the political purpose of keeping distance from the cult of Yin-Yang and respect for the great saint.
But this was not the only Duke of Brendel to see.
“His Majesty the Emperor. Since Great Saint Lady has been honorably visited by our empire, how would it be like to receive a blessing for His Majesty’s longevity and the prosperity of the Empire?”
Then Cardinal Griffin stepped forward.
“Your Majesty. There is an order to everything. It is considered to be the proper treatment to receive blessings from the Great Saint of Light first and then from the Great Saint of Yin and Yang.”
“But isn’t that what you are saying because the Great Saint of Light is not coming?”
Cardinal Griffin expressed his embarrassment at the Duke of Brendel’s misfortune. He had invited him from the beginning, but Princess Ignes had not yet visited the Empire.
“Not everything is God’s will.”
“Huh. Is it the will of God to give priority to children over fathers?”
Duke Brendel’s words just emphasized that Lumenox, the god of yin and yang, was the father of Lu, the god of light. Cardinal Griffin narrowed his eyes and glared at him.
“No. Of course, Lumenox-sama, the creator god, comes first. However, isn’t the Dalahan a divine god whose origins are unknown? How can it be said to be the same as the 7 gods created by God himself?”
“What! How can you, Cardinal, deny the history of our Yosrahim Empire!”
The Duke of Brendel did as he did. The Dalahan is the beloved sword of Emperor Siegfried and a symbol of the founding of the Yosrahim Empire. To deny the Dalahan was to deny the Empire.
“Besides speaking of religious principles.”
“Cardinal. It is a religious principle to deny the Creator God!”
“There is no evidence anywhere other than that there is no evidence that the Dalahan was related to the Creator God.”
Suddenly, the atmosphere in Daejeon turned ugly. His maternal uncle sighed in embarrassment, and the conservatives and the mainstream, the forces of light, pointed at each other and shouted.
“His Majesty the Emperor! Please expel Cardinal Griffin, who insulted the Empire immediately, and restore the Empire’s dynasty.”
“Emperor. There are things that must not be against the principle of the Word. Please dispel their coercion.”
The fight went on for a long time. His maternal uncle repeatedly scolded him and asked for restraint, but for a moment, the priests grabbed each other’s tails again and continued to engage in religious discourse.
Armida was annoyed and twisted his body, and Shura had numbness in her leg and bent his knee and repeated his straightening.
I shouted at everyone in a nervous voice.
“Hey, let’s eat some rice!”
Everyone’s bewildered eyes turned to me. I just shut the mouths of all the big and small gods in the empire with just eating.
But no one came forward to ask. Although I borrowed Yojo’s power, I had a history of destroying Urbos. It is the colossus of ruin in the myth that destroyed the Ysera kingdom.
My maternal uncle, who got the cause, wanted to be at this time, so he said to everyone.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
“The words on the back are right. It is very rude to leave a precious guest hungry due to the circumstances of the empire. Hurry up and hold the banquet.”
Soon the meeting broke out, and everyone headed to the banquet hall.
The banquet was being held in a grand way. We ate together at the same table while high-quality music was playing.
The Duke of Brendel, who was seated with me, complained to me about what he was complaining about.
“Back. Isn’t that too much? How come you hear nothing but eat food even after hearing their condescending words and deeds?”
“What do you do when you hang out with people who are going to hell? It’s just a waste of stamina.”
“What does that mean?”
“The Dalahan is a sword that Saint Prosia presented to Emperor Yosrahim. I insulted such a sword, if there is a hell, I must go. It is blasphemy.”
I even brought up Saint Prosia and spread the praises of Dalahan. As the symbolism of Dalahan grows, my breath within the empire grows. It wasn’t a lie and there was no reason not to.
The Duke of Brendel made a startled face.
“But in the myth of the founding of the nation, it is said that it was given to me by a mysterious woman…”
“That is that one.”
“Are you sure? Do you have any grounds?”
I glanced at Armida. My sister pissed me off.
“Yes. The Valkyrie I met before was like that.”
“But if you say you only heard it, it doesn’t prove anything at all.”
“Hey, when did you believe in God with evidence?”
“That’s right, but….”
“If you are sad, you become stronger. When the strong cries, that is the truth.”
“I do know.”
Then there was a young man in colorful bicolor approaching our table. The blonde man smiled brightly and made a spot for him to sit with us.
He was none other than a cousin.
“Greetings, Madame of Yin and Yang. This is Prince Simon.”
“It’s an honor to meet you.”
Shura greeted him politely and unaware, but the Duke of Brendel clearly showed his discomfort. Simon ascended to the throne with the absolute support of Duke Manfred, one of the main pillars of the power of light within the empire.
Simon looked at the peacock with a bright expression. The Duke of Brendel is the Minister of Military Affairs who oversees and oversees the Imperial Army. The forces of Yin and Yang were controlling the military bureaucracy of the Empire from generation to generation under the influence of Grandfather Cloud.
Simon’s older brother, who was uneasy about the throne, was desperate for his power.
“Duke of Brendel. Have you been in peace all this time?”
“How have you been? Hmmm.”
As the Duke of Brendel kept his distance, Simon gave me a strange glance. It looked like they would make me a Beevil Hill.
“There was also a back like this. nice to meet you. I am Simon, Crown Prince of the Empire.”
“I am Kaoyan. nice to meet you.”
Simon’s face became complicated and subtle at my banter. To get angry, it was a tough greeting, and to accept it, the Crown Prince’s face was not the point.
In the end, Simon burst into laughter.
“Hahaha. as rumored It’s like the big one.”
“It doesn’t look like much.”
“Like it. Let’s not do that, shall we be between brothers and sisters?”
Simon said and held out his hand.
He had not changed since then or now. He gets through difficult situations like a loach. So he ascended to the throne, though.
I took his brother’s hand. After all, he was between his brother and sister in his previous life.
“I’m fine. Brother, then, let’s do well in the future.”
“Okay. Let’s do well.”
Afterward, Simon played with me for a while. The Duke of Brendel, who had been looking at this with an uncomfortable expression the whole time, made another shout as soon as his older brother left.
“Back. Prince Simon’s forces are all hardline mainstream. What’s more, they are followers of the light of the bone marrow, and they are interfering with our work in every way.”
“Know. But not Simon. When he becomes emperor, he’ll treat the forces of yin and yang better than anyone else. We need to keep Duke Manfred in check.”
“What are you talking about? Duke Manfred is a strong foundation for Prince Simon.”
Simon inherited the royal blood of Yosrahim very deeply. No matter how strong a supporter such an older brother is, he can’t keep Duke Manfred for the rest of his life.
For reference, his maternal uncle’s strong support base was Archduke Rupert, who now plays the old man who is doing today and tomorrow in order to survive. If it was unfair, would Grandpa Cloud immediately rejuvenate and raise the flag of rebellion?
I also know my brother very well because I am of the Yosrahim bloodline. As soon as the older brother becomes emperor, he is definitely someone to face confiscation. Because the Yosrahim imperial family did not tolerate this person from generation to generation.
His father was also able to keep his position as the second player for a long time as he was the only team able to contain the Grand Duke Cloud, but if it hadn’t been for him, he would have fallen apart soon.
After the first day at the Imperial Palace, Shura visited the imperial nobles who believed in the doctrine of yin and yang one after another. It was a very tight schedule, but I was out of it.
Because I had to have a different schedule. It was a meeting with diplomatic officials.
Currently, the Yosrahim Empire was trying to contain the Bastein Kingdom just like the Lobros Kingdom. Although the name of the kingdom has changed, its essence has not changed. The vast amounts of food produced on fertile lands and the overflowing wealth from intermediary trade.
Obviously, as soon as the Bastein Kingdom stabilizes the country, it is certain that it will go down the road of imperialization again.
However, there was a means to check the new Bastein Kingdom. It was the Kara Kingdom.
Kara was currently building a powerful magical weapon corps with chaos pieces produced in the vast desert and was amassing great wealth by controlling sea trade routes. If you join hands with the Kara Kingdom, the Yosrahim Empire will have an attractive hand to check the Bastein Kingdom.
But I skipped over. For Kara, it is because there is no profit at all to work with the Yosrahim Empire.
It was too far to expect military cooperation, and if the Bastein Kingdom was violently outraged by the decisive alliance with the Yosrahim Empire, the sea trade route being pioneered could be the last to block Jores Island.
Moreover, the Yosrahim Empire did not create hostile relations only with the Kingdom of Bastein. He didn’t get along very well with the Orcs either.
On the other hand, Kara is good in many ways to form an alliance with the orc race. The orcs didn’t care much about money, so they only considered the territory of the Kara kingdom as a barren desert, and since they bordered on each other, if they formed an alliance, they would have strong allies.
As Kara, there was no reason to join hands with the Yosrahim Empire.
‘Then let’s start slowly.’
Nearly ten days passed like this. As the quest execution date drew near, I slowly headed to my hometown, Karl Estate. The purpose of the visit was that I would go and visit first before the visit of the great saint Shura.
But he didn’t go alone. Unexpectedly, an uninvited guest was standing next to me.
“Hey. grandpa. Why is your grandfather here?”
“I’m on my way to inspect.”
“It’s Karl’s estate. I told you to prepare the military, but you have to make sure you are preparing properly.”
I took a deep breath.
“Anyway, is it so, a nobleman equal to each of the archdukes go to the inspection alone?”
“It’s a secret. When the news that I’m leaving comes, I’m sure I’ll close my eyes and say hello.”
“What would you do if someone recognized you?”
“Be safe. I have been confined to my house for 60 years, and no one recognizes me except the people of the Imperial Palace.”
I put on an annoyed look.
“Then you can go another day. Why today?”
“Ugh. It looks like there’s going to be a change in Karl’s estate soon. If you deal with the situation well, the military is in good shape, otherwise it is not. Isn’t it a very neat and simple inspection? There is no need to waste time.”
I clenched my teeth. it’s an excuse This grandpa definitely has something he wants from me. Otherwise, you can’t pursue me tenaciously like a stalker.
Perhaps the purpose is to take care of the crisis of the empire that will occur after the death of the grandfather. The grandfather must have sensed death by now, and since he did not have a grandfather, there was no way he was unaware of the sufferings of the Empire.
I clenched my teeth.
“Never interfere with my work.”
“Don’t worry. If I help, I will help, I will not hinder you.”
“Don’t even help! Helping grandpa gets in the way!”
“Aren’t you going to stop doing what you want?”
Grandpa Cloud made a very surprised expression.
“How do you know me so well? Did you even do an investigation into my identity?”
I wiped my face.
A large and unexpected variable has arisen. I don’t know how this will turn out if Grandpa Cloud intervenes. If the plan goes wrong, you don’t know that there will be a lot of bloodshed, and the possibility that Grandpa Cloud himself will commit the bloodshed is quite high.
He was stronger than me, so he couldn’t grab it right away, and he was going crazy and jumping.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
