    Were it not that she’s not the type (at least so far), Mideer might have considered the quaint custom in some dynasties of killing off all her rivals once she ascended the throne.

      But as you say, she’s not the type. Though maybe they’ll wipe each other out, all trying to take control, and thus leave the throne vacant for her. I’m sure this has happened, I just don’t remember (top of head) when, or where.

      • Brian Bixby says:

        Both the families of Augustus and Constantine the Great got thinned out remarkably quickly.

        See, I knew I knew it really. And all I could think of was Yorkists & Lancastrians. But of course there were still some Yorkists left when the Tudors climbed onto the throne.

        Which Henry VII did his best to get rid of. I think Henry VIII even took steps against a few of them.

      • crimsonprose says:

        Henry VIII had Edmund de la Pole executed for treason within about 5 years of him coming to the throne. the De La Poles, had previously been earls, and then dukes of Suffolk. Not exactly my period of history but I’m remembering rightly, the Brandons took over their titles and estates, and helped to heave poor little Jane onto the throne for her all of 9 days in 1553. (or was it 1555?)
