“Not all the water in the rough rude sea can wash the balm from an anointed King.” -William Shakespeare

Royals are comfortable with power. Whether they have earned it as Executives and Politicians, inherited it as Kings and Queens or are waiting to inherit it as Heirs, Heiresses, Princes, and Princesses, these are the people who are at their best exuding their regalness over the rest of us.

But not all Royals are alike. Some, showing the dark side of power, can be haughty and imperious as well as avaricious and paranoid, with the misplaced confidence that comes from never being questioned. Others can be noble and magnanimous with a naturally attentive demeanor and a tendency to struggle to make decisions that are for the good of others more than themselves. No matter how they rule, Royals always do so with great conviction.
