    What is a king if his power is not absolute and his word the law itself?

    True power is completely arbitrary, otherwise it is not.

    But most 'kings' today only pretend they are and play play at it.

    Depends, the king as a ruler or the king as a ceremony fig. head of state?

    Look at the king of Thailand. He's not the ruler but he knows that his standing in Thailand is ever higher than the prime minster or even the highest court in the land, yet he's a very humble man. The royal families in some other countries have a lot to learn from him.

    Humble does not mean anything insofar as power is concern, by definition, ie if the king is not play play one, and have really really real power, he can be humble or arrogant or sadistic or benevolent or whatever, or humble today and cruel tomorrow, no one can do or even say anything - he can push an old woman down and break her legs or give her flowers, after pushing her down, its utterly the king's prerogative. That's the meaning of real power.

    But then fortunately - or unfortunately(?) - there may be no one with really really real power in this world. Or maybe I am wrong. There is still Pay And Pay. But then again ...

    But maybe due to cultural differences, they probably don't subscribe to the proverb.

    heh.... the proverb is "When prince commits murder, not Emperor!!!!"
