The Prince Wants To Retire - Chapter 180
The Prince Wants To Retire chapter 180
Gaiden 1. Who wins the battle for retirement? (3)
As Kariel smiled and had a quick drink with Seriel, the main characters of the day appeared afterwards.
“Meet Your Majesty.”
“You came with me.”
Middle-aged men who showed up in the middle of the night.
“Your Majesty, is what you promised really true?”
Kariel nodded slightly at the question of the man standing in the front.
“Unless a crisis comes to the empire, I have no intention of calling you back.”
Kariel’s words brightened the faces of the men in front of them.
What an emperor’s promise.
It was only a verbal promise, but if it was Kariel who made the promise, it was more reliable than a piece of paper.
It was because there was nothing that Kariel had promised and that had not been fulfilled.
“okay… … Are you sure you’ve decided on a route now?”
At Kariel’s question, the man in the front bowed his head.
“Shin and the Marquis of Sicario will support Your Majesty’s retirement.”
“Shin Achelio will also support Your Majesty’s retirement. You’ve worked hard, so rest well for the rest of your life.”
Kariel smiled and nodded at the words of the two middle-aged men, and looked at Duke David with a surprised expression.
“But will you be all right?”
“What do you mean?”
“If you retire, there will be trouble with the aristocratic faction.”
Duke David smiled bitterly at Kariel’s words.
“What’s wrong with the aristocratic faction now? Now is the time to rest.”
Because of Kariel, who was revered as a god, the aristocracy itself had no meaning.
In addition, as numerous talented people, including revolutionary forces, began to prey on central politics, the privileges of the aristocrats also became a thing of the past.
Some old nobles still can’t forget the past and go wild, but even so, they end up in prison.
“If you retire like this, the Duke of Wilkshire will be in trouble.”
“That friend has just risen to the rank of mage, so he has to work hard.”
Since Duke David, who reached the level of a master a long time ago, he has been struggling since the Dark Ages.
Every time he checked the south, he was recruited as a master, and whenever he went to a dangerous area with Cariel, he suffered a lot instead of the Duke of Wilkshire who remained in the center.
That’s why I was able to be confident.
‘I did enough to suffer. Please retire!’
Looking at Duke David, who insisted on this with strong eyes, Kariel smiled and nodded.
“By the way, if all three of them fall out like this, the military department will say something?”
“ah! Don’t worry about that part, brother.”
As if to say not to worry, Seriel took out the report from her bosom.
“The Archduke is knocking on the Master’s wall. Also, it has been reported that the Marquis of Altan and the Marquis of Delrond in the south have almost crossed the wall.”
New masters were always welcome.
Even if they retire, the masters who recommended talented people to fill the vacancy smiled.
Of course, one was the Grand Master, but there was no major threat right away, so there would be no problem.
“Then you’ll know that everyone supports me.”
After saying that, Kariel promised a peaceful future while having a fun drinking party with the masters who are about to retire.
And after a while, the election ceremony proceeded quickly as if it had been squeezed.
By omitting all the paperwork procedures, the already-quick selection process became faster.
As a result, beauties from all over the world rushed to Ignit.
“There are a lot of crowds.”
“That’s it. But what does it mean?”
“exactly… … Will Empress Mama choose one of those close to her?”
Most of the citizens of the Ignit Empire knew that this banquet ceremony had already been decided to some extent.
Looking at Kariel’s appearance during that time, I couldn’t help but think that way.
Kariel, who was the person he was closest to, or the women he had seen a lot of, didn’t even look at him.
It was a big deal when he was busy, but looking at what Kariel had shown in the meantime, it seemed extremely unlikely that he would turn his eyes to another woman because of this election ceremony.
“Ayla upper stock is strong, right?”
“It is not.”
The only daughter of the Ruminus Dominion, a former principality and now an Imperial Dominion, and one of the 10 Ignis guilds.
She is outstanding in her ability, pedigree, and beauty.
The biggest threat to her was the Marquis Chardonna, the master she had been friends with for a long time.
Although he is older than Kariel, that is not a big problem as he is a master.
Because the appearance won’t change for the next few decades.
These two were people who had been mentioned as empress candidates since Kariel was the crown prince.
However, after becoming emperor, many new candidates also began to emerge.
“Actually, Ayla top wine is fine, but I think Marnier Paul top wine is also okay.”
“It’s not like that. If Ayla’s Sangsanju is cute, then Marnier’s Sangsanju is more bewitching?”
When they gathered in the plaza, they would mention the numerous beauties of the West Continent, centering on Ayla and Marnier San Sangju, and insist on people who would fit in with Kariel.
However, when one person came out, their lips closed like a clam.
“No matter how pretty you have to be, do you want to be as good as the Marquis of Chardonnay?”
Marquis Chardonnay is said to be the most beautiful woman in the Western Continent.
In the past, everyone would have kept their mouths shut when her name came out, but now it has changed.
“If it’s a Saint Lundia, it’s worth rubbing it.”
After the death of the pope and the sun sword, the Kingdom of God, which had suffered a single infighting, took its place again with the appearance of a new saint.
He hasn’t reached the Masters level yet, but he was one of the strong candidates for the next Masters level.
At the same time, her beauty was also outstanding, so she is now popular across the western continent beyond China.
“Uh-huh, would it still be as good as the Marquis of Chardonnay?”
All of a sudden, the Marquis of Chardonnay and Saint Lundia are fighting over who is prettier.
While sneaking into Ayla and Marni too, they argued over who was the most beautiful woman in the Western Continent.
Those who never back down.
However, unlike this, there were those who bet on Kariel.
“Will your Majesty really only have one Empress?”
“I know. I wonder if the Empress will stay.”
Everyone nodded heavily.
In the meantime, the crisis of the empire and the crisis of the continent were not enough to afford to get married, so I understood.
The problem is now at peace.
After the war, even in peaceful circumstances, Kariel pushed the marriage away.
I understand it’s because of the fight for retirement, but after being alone for so long, some suspects questioned Kariel’s physical problems.
“Actually, may your Majesty have a problem there?”
“go… … .”
“Uh-huh! this person?”
“Honestly, it is. No, Empress Mama, even if it is because of political issues, does it make sense that such a young man does not have a lover?”
Due to the fact that Kariel, who is in full swing, doesn’t have a lover, in fact, many of the people of the Empire were not expressing their feelings on the outside, but inside they were suspicious.
Because Kariel is revered as a god, everyone is worried even if he can’t say it out loud.
Worry about not being able to carry on a great lineage.
There were also several reasons.
After the war, she rarely attended banquets and paid no attention to the beautiful ladies-in-waiting whom the aristocrats secretly pushed.
Above all, there was a suspicion that Luffiel was sitting in the crown prince’s seat because Kariel had a physical defect and was trying to succeed the throne instead of him.
As this suspicion spread throughout the empire, some newspapers even published articles valiantly criticizing Kariel.
“In fact, might His Majesty have made a deal with God?”
It was just an article with no end and bottomless title, but if you were an imperial citizen, you would know what it meant as soon as you saw it.
An article about whether he gained power by sacrificing something precious to protect the continent.
To the extent that such an article was published, Kariel had been hit with work.
As a result, when it was said that the ceremony for the selection of the empress was held, people could not easily believe it and checked it several times.
“Hmm… … Because of His Majesty’s character, there is a high probability that only one Empress Mama will be chosen.”
The people of the Empire who think this way.
But people on other continents were different.
As the emperor who reigns as the world’s most powerful country in name and reality, he thought that even if it was difficult for an empress, it would be great if he could occupy one position even if it was an empress.
Even if the position of the Empress was appointed, would the position of the Empress be the same?
“The Empress has hope.”
“There is a high possibility that a large number of empresses will be hired even for the sake of the marriage alliance.”
Thinking like this, countless women came from the East Continent, the New Continent to the West, and the huge island of Aonia to the South.

Just like the reputation of Ignit, who is called the strongest on the continent, there were several hundred people even if they were culled.
The question was whether Kariel would really marry the empress.
A subject of intense interest comparable to who would become the empress.
Although it was an election ceremony that drew attention from people around the world in many ways, the imperial palace was quiet.
“What about Rufiel?”
“For now, we are concentrating on the ceremony.”
“Hmm… … Did you give up?”
When Kariel said this with a sad expression, Tarion smiled bitterly.
Befitting a person who created power by defeating even the prime minister with political power from the days of the crown prince, he was shaking Rufiel as if playing with it.
Even if he was in Rufiel’s position, he didn’t seem to be able to endure it.
“More than that, Your Majesty.”
“I have a question for you.”
At Tarion’s question, Kariel tilted her head and said.
“Are you going to have an empress?”
“Yes. Everyone is wondering if His Majesty is even selecting empresses this time.”
At his words, Kariel frowned.
“Is it because of the marriage alliance?”
“There are, but there are so many beautiful women… … .”
Kariel was lost in thought at Tarion’s words.
“Hwangbi… … .”
Cariel muttered quietly and shook his head.
At this point, I wondered if I really needed the empress.
There are three main reasons for the successive emperors to adopt the empress.
1. Because you are beautiful.
2. To bond with a marriage alliance.
3. To match forces.
Looking at these three things, No. 2 and No. 3 were not relevant.
Kariel had no intention of getting involved in the eastern continent, nor was he interested in aligning forces.
This is because absolute power has already been formed just by the presence of Kariel.
All that’s left is because it’s pretty… … .
“Certainly not everyone is pretty.”
Seeing the women mentioned as Empress, Kariel shook her head.
Chardonnay and Saint-Gyun are so beautiful that a man’s heart will flutter.
Aila and Marnier are comparable to Sangju.
All four were talented, pretty, and had a good personality.
The problem is that Kariel has seen how stupid it is to have an empress in both past and present lives.
How many problems were there when the former emperor and his father brought in the empress to match the powers?
One day, he had to find a certain empress, and then he had to go find another empress to comfort him.
If only one person is favored, the power can fluctuate for no reason, so I have to balance it properly, but how tiring is that?
Today’s Kariel is somewhat free in this area, but is the jealousy of women like that?
If he favored only the empress, he would be jealous of the empresses, and if he favored the empresses, he would have to deal with the empress’ anger.
Thinking this far, Kariel sighed and shook her head.
“Wow, that is terrible.
Kariel, who shuddered, said to Tarion.
“I won’t pay the empress.”
Looking at Kariel who spoke firmly, he nodded that he knew that Tarion would.
“But it’s unfortunate.”
“If I had even hired the empress, I would have been able to spend more time traveling around my mother-in-law’s house.”
At Tarion’s words, Kariel’s head began to spin violently.
Luffiel will work hard during his honeymoon and visiting his mother-in-law. But one day, you will have to return to the Imperial Palace.
Of course, we have plans for the next one, but we will have to go back to the Imperial Palace and see the liver.
But what if the empresses are brought in and they go to their mother-in-law’s house?
‘Maybe we can proceed with the plan without returning to the Imperial Palace… … .’
Kariel is crazy about thinking up to this point.
But then he shook his head.
The risk was too great for that.
Kariel has already seen countless times in the Imperial Palace, ministers and officials living in captivity by their wives.
I heard countless times that officials who work overtime every day as if they were eating rice came to him and complained about his wife as an excuse.
It was difficult to handle even one person, but Kariel was too tired to handle even the empresses.
“Let’s just choose the empress.”
“… … Yes, Your Majesty.”
