On Being A Ruler

Castle of Vianden, Luxembourg via MontgomeryFest

If IIIIIII were a ruler in 1090, I would go and find the prettiest landscape around, surrounded by mountains. Then, I’d find a hill (or have one built) and put my castle right on top of it. When the people wanted to come party in my neighborhood, I’d let them build a city at the foot of my hill filled with colorful homes and cobblestoned streets. That probably sounds a wee bit self absorbed, but c’mon, I’m a 1090 ruler. Vanity comes with the territory…literally.
