Chapter 29: Eleni Still Doesn’t Know
Since the tragedy at the Kailus Palace, the situation had become unpredictable, and the flames of rebellion spread rapidly.
The Hyperion Empire’s emperor was assassinated. The surviving members of the imperial family, including the crown prince, were surrounded by the rebellious people of the Kailus Kingdom as they tried to flee to the neighboring Minava Kingdom. They were all killed, and their bodies were thrown into a river on the border with Minava Kingdom. The Minava Kingdom army, who witnessed this, immediately began to capture the nobles of the Minava Kingdom in response to the rebellion. However, since more than half of the nobles were missing in the Kailus Palace, all the nobles in the country were captured within two days and were waiting for execution.
Meanwhile, in Eleni’s hometown, the Uranos Principality, the news of the death of his beloved daughter, Princess Paulina, drove the Duke of Uranos to madness. After that, all the important officials fled, and the Uranos Principality, which had no knights left, collapsed overnight. The castle was burned down, and the people became free, and everyone fled from the Uranos Principality.
The rebellion started by the people of the Kailus Kingdom seemed to spread endlessly, as if it would destroy everything from the old era, hating the kingdom’s nobility. Fearing that the wave would reach the Styx Kingdom at the center of the continent, Athanasios and other leaders of the Styx Kingdom worked to calm the people’s hearts.
However, the people of the Kailus Kingdom joined forces with the Styx Kingdom. They raised the banner of creating a new ideal country without royal nobles and received the first promise of recognition and support as a nation from the Styx Kingdom.
This became the turning point. The people of the Hyperion Empire and the Minava Kingdom, influenced by the Kailus Kingdom, also wanted the same thing. Unwanted extremists were suppressed by the army sent from the Styx Kingdom. The four countries, including the already destroyed old Uranos Principality, formed a community and became a huge emerging country called the Cosmo Federation, bringing a new wind to the continent.
As planned by Prince Athanasios and Nikita, all of these events led to the establishment of a new international system under the leadership of the Styx Kingdom. After all, there were no detestable nobles in the Styx Kingdom. The royal family were all clergy, and the Oceanids believers from all over the continent trusted them. Moreover, the Styx Kingdom rarely imposed taxes on the people, and the country’s administration was sustained by voluntary contributions, various industrial profits, and land rents, making it a rare system. There was no reason for either the nobles or the common people to hate them.
Now, Hemerapolis and Amphitrite, under the mediation of the Styx Kingdom, ended the war. Both countries gradually transitioned from being ruled by royal nobles to the new system, which also required the backing of the Styx Kingdom. They imposed restrictions, swearing to the sacred main god Styx that they would not engage in foolish politics like the old system of royal nobles, in order to gain the support of the people. However, since there were still surviving royal nobles in both countries, there were also voices calling for mercy towards them, and gradually, changes were accepted. Other countries were also forced to change in a similar trend.
Eleni still doesn’t know any of this. Her husband, Prince Athanasios, had restricted the information.
