...

The possibility of rebellion is not the determining factor of absolutism. If that were the case, no monarch could be termed absolute. The determining factor of absolutism is the lack of a legal restraint on the King's power. There is no legal restraint on the King's power. He can do anything he pleases legally.

The New Monarchies are termed absolute, despite rebellions and the existence of forces that could have rebelled if the King failed to maintain a proper stance. Pendor is a New Monarchy. (Quite literally too! tongue )

And we can be as nitpicky as we want, but that wouldn't be any fun would it?

The king is still in a feudal relation with his vassals which by "service for protection" implies that he cannot completely do as he pleases. Failing to protect (without precedent offenses of the vassals) would make him loose the legitimacy to rule them.

I think it was to do with my comment on codifying treason, which as usual has bee utterly blown out of proportion.

The problem is, debate is good if people learn things, but most of our arguments seem to be people with conflicting opinions of history repeating theirs until we all give up.

I'll say what I said in a PM; I will not formalise what the definition of Treason is because there is no formal definition of it as yet. It is very possible that there will be a future Throne Room event to create a formal (10 commandments style) code of laws, but that does not as yet exist.

I think the discussion about the king's position is easily solved by just waiting for Mordred's IC reaction. Just get the reply up so we can go on.

Eh, make the reading fun! Every time one opens a book, (s)he should enjoy it. It is not reading if it makes you suffer.
