He was the best fucking ruler ever, no one dared do anything against him. Once he chucked a pure gold goblet into a fountain and walked off, then returned 2 weeks later and it was still there because everyone was too afraid to steal it and risk getting impaled.
Another time he invited a heap of lepers and poor homeless people and prostitutes into a huge hall and gave them a big feast. He then asked "Is there anything more in the world you want?" they replied that this was all they wanted and he said something like "If all you want in life is to eat then you shall be glad to leave this world." he left, they locked the doors AND BURNT THE HALL DOWN WITH ALL THE OCCUPANTS.
