The King of Piedmont is dying. You are the Palace Minister at the Palazzo del Piemonte, and aside from the Queen the only other person who knows of the King's actual status. Leveraging this knowledge, you must position yourself such that when the King finally dies, you are in position to act as regent for his five-year-old son.
