“Long live the king!”
The voices of the courtiers trembled.
The three princes’ eyes were shocked and their expressions were filled with disbelief.
My father is actually still alive?!
Not only that, looking at this state, he’s even close to his heyday!
Could it be that the strange illness from before was just an act?
The eldest prince was the first to react and said in a loud voice, “Father’s body is not sick, it is indeed a blessing for the Saxin Kingdom!”
The other two princes cursed that this person had defeated them.
They hurriedly knelt down and said.
“God bless Saxin!”
“Father, Heaven bless you with good fortune and long life!”
Babuh’s face was expressionless as he said indifferently, “You should be disappointed to see that I’m still alive, right?”
The three men grimaced.
“On what the basis is it, father?”
“I’ve been having trouble sleeping and eating lately, of course I’m very worried!”
“Is that so?”
Babuh laughed coldly, “That’s because you’re worried that I won’t die, right?”
The ministers drew in a cold breath!
That was a bit too blunt!
Looking at the cold eyes behind the beaded curtain, a bad premonition appeared in the hearts of the three princes.
The intelligent people seemed to realize something and distanced themselves from them.
Babuh said: “In the past three months, I have understood many things, and have seen many things.”
“There is no Crown Prince in Saxin.”
“Now, while everyone is here, let’s settle this matter.”
The princes bowed their heads low, but their fists were secretly clenched.
If His Majesty died, the three of them would naturally ascend the throne on their own merit.
But now that the king’s body is intact, this crown prince title will be very important, and they can’t really turn against the king.
Because if they turn against the king, it’s not a seizure of the throne, but a rebellion!
The first Prince’s face showed excitement.
He was the king’s eldest son, so he should be the crown prince for all practical purposes!
Babuh waved his hand, “Declare the edict.”
The royal eunuch on the side took out a decree and read aloud, “By the will of heaven, the following is the royal edict.”
“Since my coronation, I have never been so tired and determined to dare to sacrifice myself.”
“In response to the people’s hopes, I have worked diligently at all times.”
“First Princess Alia, to whom the will of Heaven belongs, and in accordance with public opinion, I hereby bestows on behalf Heaven and Earth, on behalf the ancestral temples and on behalf the people, the title of Crown Princess, to be installed in the Eastern Palace!”
“To revive the union of ten thousand years and to prosper the hearts of the four seas!”
The first Prince’s smile froze on his face.
Everyone fell silent.
His Majesty has really made the Eldest Princess the Crown Princess of the Kingdom?
There has never been such a thing in the history of the Saxin Kingdom!
Alia, wearing a beautiful palace gown, knelt down and bowed, “I accept the edict.”
Although she had no desire for power, but for the sake of her mother and the people of Saxin Kingdom, she could not give up the throne to the other three princes!
At this moment, the eldest prince couldn’t help himself and said, “Father, there has never been a precedent for making a princess the crown princess in our country!”
Babuh said indifferently, “Then I will set this precedent.”
“But what has Alia done for the Saxin Kingdom? I have no confidence in her capabilities!”
“Neither am I!”
“Father, please think again!”
Several princes spoke one after another.
They had planned it for so long, but in the end, the crown was given to an obscure princess?
Who could accept this?
Babuh thought about it and said, “Alia’s biggest contribution should be to find a good son-in-law for me, right?”
The crowd looked confused.
The eunuch said in a loud voice, “Invite Shengzi Su into the palace.”
The crowd looked back in confusion, only to see a man in a python robe slowly enter the hall.
His figure was handsome, and his appearance was handsome, only his expression was a little helpless.
“This seems to be ……”
“It’s Su Shi! Duke Linlang!”
“Why is he here? Could it be that the son-in-law His Majesty is talking about is him?!”
Su Shi’s big name sounded like thunder.
Only a few people in the entire Human Realm did not know it.
But when did the Saxin Kingdom get involved with Linlang?
Before they could regain their senses, the royal eunuch took out another scroll of the royal edict and read out, “By the will of heaven, the following is the royal edict.”
“The way of husband and wife is the greatest of human ethics, and this is the common meaning of ancient and modern times.”
“Su Shi and Alia love each other and have the same heart. I hereby ask Su Shi to be the king’s son-in-law, and Alia to be a strong wife and keep her family clean forever, to honor her parents’ intentions.”
Su Shi really had become His Majesty’s son-in-law!
The courtiers’ mouths couldn’t be shut. They had noticed the words used by His Majesty, it was “king’s son-in-law” and not “Prince Consort”, so her position was not lower than him!
Alia bit her lip, her cheeks flushed.
“Who is in love with him?”
Babuh smiled and said, “Sir Duke, still haven’t accepted the edict?”
Su Shi said helplessly, “I accept.”
He has sacrificed too much for a small bronze bell ……
The first prince trembled and gritted his teeth, “Alia, it seems that I really underestimated you!”
“I thought you were pure-minded and didn’t care about the royal government, but I never thought that you secretly colluded with other countries and even cheated Father!”
“But with that said, you only have your body to sell.”
Facing the First Prince’s sneer, Alia’s brow furrowed.
She was just about to say something when she saw the eldest prince fall to his knees with a thud, seemingly held down by large invisible hands, unable to stand up no matter how hard he struggled.
Su Shi looked at him coldly, “Although there is no real marriage, but you’d better watch your tone.”
“Also, I’m the one who sold my body.”
Alia couldn’t help but feel a little warmth in her heart.
That Prince Pertema shouted, “How dare you! I am the prince of the Kingdom of Saxin! Even if you are the king’s son-in-law, you are not as honorable as the royal family, how dare you offend me in front of everyone?!”
Su Shi shook his head, “But a prince from a small country, how can you speak in front of me?”
How dare he offend his superior?
This person didn’t seem to have an accurate position of himself.
Babuh looked embarrassed.
Although it is true that Saxin is a small country compared to Linlang, there is no need to be so blunt, right?
It really doesn’t give any face at all.
Babuh spoke, “Hurry up and read out the next royal edict.”
The group of courtiers froze at those words.
Only to see imperial eunuch Shuang Mei pull out another royal edict and read, “By the will of heaven, the following is a royal edict.”
“The first prince, Harbouri, the second prince, Gurun, and the third prince, Zamu, have disrupted the royal system, formed factions, and are disloyal, ungrateful, and treacherous!”
“I have decided that it is wise to strip them of their titles to become commoners, and that they will not be appointed posthumously for all time!”
The court was silent!
