They did not have courage to express any resistance in fear of the Queen killing them.
However, they would never abide by the Queen’s orders.
The Queen had the right to make Alice the next queen and they would not have the courage to do anything to the new crown princess outwardly, but in private, they would never be so obedient!
Those noblemen of the royal family had made up their minds to entrap Alice when they could.
As the former prince, William had the right to the throne in a perfectly justifiable manner. They did not have the courage to scheme against him back then, but the young man had been dethroned.
On the other hand, Alice was just an outsider without any royal blood. They would never sit idly and allow their own destruction!
The engagement ceremony ended with Alice being the final victor, having been made the crown princess by the Queen in such a baffling manner. It could be said that Alice had hit the jackpot.
Those intelligent influential officials figured out the Queen’s motive in doing so was not just because of her admiration for Alice, but even more so because of the Rheasian named Alder!
Hence, their interest in Alder had piqued even more.
They immediately looked into Alder upon their return and found out that he was a major player from Rheasia.
Moreover, he was the champion of the recent Martial Arts Cup. He had exceptional abilities and was one step away from invincibilis state!
Moreover, the most terrifying part was how young he was…
After learning about this, they began to understand why the Queen would make Alice the crown princess…
However, even if that was the case, it did not mean that they had already given up.
On the other hand, it was a huge and pleasant surprise to the Alexanders. If Alice were to become the queen in the future, their family would have a chance to take over the royal family and become royals themselves!
It was an absolutely marvelous turn of events that would bring glory to their ancestors!
The engagement ceremony ended, and the Queen cast Alder a glance. Naturally, understood her intentions, so he followed her in silence.
The Queen exuded a holy, overbearing, and inviolable presence.
No one would have expected that she was already over eighty years old.
She looked like she was about forty and in very good health.
However, Alder could feel that something was off when he followed behind her.
The Queen’s energy seemed to fluctuate, alternating between strong and weak Even though the change was very minute, Alder could still feel it clearly.
In fact, he even speculated if the Queen had been injured.
At last, the Queen reached the farthest end of the palace.
It was a very average room that looked just like the residence of a normal person.
Was that the Queen’s room?
Alder felt rather astonished.
On the other hand, the Queen read his mind and said with a smile, “You’re right. This is my room. I’ve been living here since I was very, very young. I would come back here to recover after whatever battles I got into out there.”
Alder nodded and said, “With its unique magnetic field, it’s a rather good location. It calms one’s mind upon entrance.”
“Take a seat.”
The Queen was speaking the Rheasian language. Moreover, she spoke it fluently with just a tiny bit of an accent, not sounding stiff at all.
Taking a seat, Alder turned to the Queen and said, “Your Majesty, you’re hurt. Who did it?”
