The Prince Wants To Retire - Chapter 132
The Prince Wants To Retire chapter 132
50. Establishment of the Human Federation! (2)
In order to block the access of the demons in advance, he scraped the hidden information and informed the kings of the eastern continent.
He took this seriously to the extent that he even risked revealing how much information Kariel had to the demons.
‘It only takes one place.’
Thinking so, Kariel bit her lip.
The original goal has already been achieved, but there is no end to human greed.
In order to destroy the Roman alliance system, he aimed for the countries in the central region.
Didn’t need a lot of space.
At least, we intensively dug only three places where there was a possibility.
I thought that there might be at least one place that was shaken, but it seems that the contract with the demons was big.
‘All of the kings in the central region are old.’
Fear of not knowing when to die.
Ordinary people could not help but be more interested in surviving than dying as a human being.
Even if that would result in becoming a servant of the demons.
“Were my expectations too high?”
At Kariel’s muttering, the chief chamberlain quietly opened his mouth.
“Your Majesty, the original goal has already been achieved, so don’t worry too much.”
Kariel smiled wryly when the chamberlain said with a worried expression.
Even if only one place was shaken, it would have been able to shake the Roman alliance system. If that happens, it will be quicker to bring the North into the League of Humans, and then you will be able to surround and knock out Roman.
“Are we satisfied with the further strengthening of the League of Humanity?”
It was when Kariel was muttering like that.
“your majesty! Tharion’s intelligence chief listened.”
“Let’s hear it.”
At Kariel’s command, Tarion hurried in, bowed his head, and delivered the black letter.
“I got caught.”
“It seems so.”
Tarion answered with a smile.
Seeing him like that, Kariel asked with a serious expression.
“But the demons keep approaching?”
Unless the demons were fools, they would have noticed that the empire was using its hands on the eastern continent.
Don’t accept their offer?
If so, the demons will also use numbers.
“It seems that they are making various proposals, but they seem to promise to treat them at the level of high-ranking demons.”
“It seems like they are recruiting nobles in case they refuse to the end.”
At Tarion’s report, Kariel frowned.
“If I do, I think I will start a rebellion.”
“That’s how I judge it.”
“Then we should help.”
“Shall we dispatch more shadows?”
Kariel nodded slightly at Tarion’s words.
“Take a closer look at the remaining two countries. If you haven’t made a contract with the demons yet, it might be worth a try.”
At Kariel’s command, Tarion lowered his head and went outside.
Among the three countries, the country that I thought was the most important came over. A country in contact with nomadic peoples.
It was a perfect place to implement future plans, probably because it was a country far from Roman and sandwiched between southern countries and nomadic tribes.
All that remains is to bring the original plan forward.
“You haven’t found the gates of hell yet, have you?”
“That’s right. I apologize.”
Cariel shook his head as the valet bowed his head as he spoke.
“Are you asking me to find a place to be?”
“The librarian is looking for it, but it doesn’t seem easy.”
It is believed that the gates of hell were opened.
Although the period of the first emperor was intensively investigated, there seemed to be few documents related to hell.
Even that, there were so few materials that only the immediate family of the imperial family could find it only by opening the library.
“Tell me to find more. There’s nothing better than being able to stop something before it happens.”
“Yes, Your Majesty.”
As the chamberlain left, Kariel sighed quietly.
At first, I thought it would end when I found the demon gate. However, looking at the historical materials, that was not the case.
“It’s the gates of hell… … .”
There was a high possibility that Gareum was asleep where the Hell Gate was.
According to the chief chamberlain’s report, the demons are also looking for the place where Gareum sleeps.
It meant that even they, who were no different from the servants of hell, did not know where the gates of hell were.
– First of all, beat the demons.
Kariel sighed at the words of Surt who appeared before she knew it.
“Should I eventually go over to the East Continent?”
Surtur nodded slightly at Kariel’s question.
If the contract with Garum has been passed down through the blood system ability, Kariel’s body will respond only if he goes near the gates of hell.
This meant that in the end, Kariel had to go to find the gates of hell.
“First of all, there are two strong candidates… … .”
Kariel looked at the map and was in trouble.
1. The desolate plateau of Roman.
2. Sandria’s desert of death.
These two were the most suspicious.
Considering the characteristics of hell that Surt was talking about, there was no choice but to do so.
It is said that once the gates of hell are opened, the places where the gates are opened are transformed into terrain that is difficult for life to live.
Then, two places came to mind.
The barren land for living beings was a place where nomadic tribes in the north were located, but it was not a place where a single blade of grass did not grow.
That’s why I excluded it and decided on only two places.
“You’re saying that Roman’s plateau is suspicious, right?
-okay. The demons also know something, so they must be plotting things around there.
Kariel nodded at Surt’s reasonable suspicion.
He thought so too.
But Sandria was also troubled.
For tribes that have served hell for a long time, the possibility that one of them knows information related to the gates of hell could not be ruled out.
“after… … I’m going crazy. I’m getting the best results and I’m nervous.”
– Still, isn’t it better than the previous life?
Seeing Kariel worried, Surt folded his arms and looked at the map.
Because he had explained to Surt what had happened after his death, he knew as much as he did when the gates of hell opened and what would happen.
In particular, I was able to know more clearly because it was Surt who experienced hell firsthand during the mythology era.
In his view, Ignit was strong enough.
If he continues to grow at this rate, even if the gates of hell are opened, he is convinced that he will be able to maintain the front line to some extent.
Of course, there is a high possibility that it will eventually be swallowed up in Hell, but at least I thought that it would not collapse as easily as in my previous life.
– Eat your heart out. First of all, the most important thing is that you don’t die.
“… … okay.”
Even if the gates of hell open, it is not the end.
As long as Kariel is alive, even if the gates of hell are open, they can be closed again.
As the Emperor of the Empire, it is true that he should be careful, but more than that, Kariel had to be considerate.
The Empire had a substitute for it even if it did not have it, but it was not a gate to Hell.
“It’s still frustrating.”
He couldn’t help but be frustrated because he didn’t know where the gates of hell were and when they might open.
It’s like holding a bomb in your arms that you don’t know when it will explode.
Even so, I couldn’t give up the search.
The anticipation of being able to seal the gates of hell before it opened was enough for me to put in the effort I have now.
That’s why information about the demons was gradually handed over to the shadows, and the Secret Guard was only focused on finding the gates of hell.
In the future, all work related to the East Continent, which the Secret Guard is in charge of, will be handed over to the shadows.
-Stop worrying and start practicing today.
“after… … okay.”
Kariel nodded and replied to Surt’s words.
Even if you find the gate of hell, if you don’t get recognized by Gareum, you’ll be dumb, so you made it a training ground to handle firearms.
While Kariel was immersed in training again, the empire quickly changed.
In order to control the rapidly developing empire, the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Ministry of Technology, and the Ministry of Finance worked with their backs bent, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Information worked to the point of sweating their feet in matters related to the East Continent.
Perhaps thanks to that, things related to the Human Federation went smoothly.
“Your Majesty, one more place has decided to join the Empire’s Federation.”
“If it’s here… … Wasn’t it the place you thought was almost passed over by the demons?”
Kariel tilted her head at Tarion’s report and asked.
“Yes, that’s why I suspect that the Ministry of Information is also trying to sign up for fraud.”
A report from the Ministry of Intelligence that it is highly likely that he will act as a janitor to extract information from the Humanity Federation in a state where demons are outcasts.
But Kariel immediately signed the autograph.
“I do not care. It’s enough for us to use it.”
It didn’t matter whether they used information from the Humanity Federation or not.
The moment you formally join the League, you will have to be at odds with the Romans outwardly, making it much easier for southern states to intervene in them.
“Go to the next operation. So that the alliance can explode the moment it is formed.”
At Kariel’s command, Tarion bowed his head and retreated.
The moment the human federation is decided, the countries that do not join the federation will be defined as enemies of mankind.
It will be announced in advance and gradually create public opinion in the central region of the eastern continent.
At the same time, he was thinking of making contact with the tribes of the Sandria Empire in earnest.
Of course, if you move so radically, there is a possibility that Roman will move the army. But even that has already been prepared.
‘The moment Roman moves, the war begins.’
Thinking so, Kariel clenched her fists.
An iron wall that was attacked countless times in a previous life. And the time has come to pay back the past that Roman suffered.
At Kariel’s command, Tarion went directly to the East Continent and started the operation, and as Kariel expected, the central region of the East Continent fell into chaos little by little.
“Enemy of Humanity”
The title of traitor to humanity had no choice but to feel very heavy as a human being.
No matter how much the king and high-ranking nobles looked at Tyler, the kingdoms in the central region were already shaking.
Then, Roman did not hold back any longer and began to move his troops.
It was an attempt to pressure the southern kingdoms to prevent the formal creation of the Human League.
“It’s time to move slowly.”
“I will prepare.”
At Kariel’s words, Duke David lowered his head and replied.
Then, Kariel nodded and looked at Marquis Sicario, who had secretly entered the imperial palace.
“The sun sword?”
“I brought you.”
At Marquis Sicario’s answer, Kariel gave a small nod and instructed the chamberlain to come with the masters of the old southern kingdoms.
When Kariel entered the office, the three masters lowered their heads.
All stood still, wearing handcuffs made by the Duke of Wilkshire.
Is it because they are all dangerous people? Archelio, Glenn, the Marquis of Sicario, and the Duke of Wilkshire were all gathered in the office.
“I’ll give you a chance to lead your army.”
“… … Is it war?”
Cariel quietly nodded at Duke Pires’ question.
“If you keep your promise, I will let the princes live.”
“… … .”
“… … .”
At Kariel’s words, the Dukes of Cleta and Pires fell silent.
In the end, the king’s life was not saved.
Even so, he has been fighting in court for a long time as the king of a country, but as long as Kariel’s will is firm, he will not be able to escape death.
Then, even the remaining princes had to be saved.
They knew very well that they had to pay the price to save not only them but also their families and not discriminate against the people of the old kingdom.
Knowing that the development of the cities of the former southern kingdoms was all due to the mercy of the emperor, he bowed his head without saying a word.
“You, too, keep your promise. Then again, I will allow you to build a temple in the capital of the empire.”
“… … I will.”
The sun sword also bowed its head in silence.
I endured humiliation thinking about what the Pope had said before coming here.
“Absolutely obey the emperor’s words. We must endure all humiliation and crawl so that we can once again be accepted as the core religion of the Empire.”
Show an attitude of complete surrender.
That was what the pope wanted, and the Sunsword intended to fulfill it faithfully.
“Let me go.”
“It is dangerous.”
When Glenn, who was standing beside Kariel’s command, put his hand on the doorknob and said, Kariel shook his head.
Then the Duke of Wilkshire released the handcuffs with a sigh.
“Trust you guys.”
At Kariel’s command, the three Masters silently knelt down and bowed their heads.
Kariel nodded slightly at that appearance, which was like an oath of obedience.
Kariel, who received obedience from the masters of the former southern kingdoms and the sun sword, which had fallen as a religious state, prepared to leave for the east with a satisfied smile.

After a while, the leaders of the East Continent and Kariel gathered in the Aisa archipelago.
And on that day, a single article spread throughout the eastern continent, including the empire.
「The Human League is created!」
