There is something behind the throne greater than the King himself.
There is no king who has not had a slave among his ancestors, and no slave who has not had a king among his.
The foremost art of kings is the ability to endure hatred.
A throne is only a bench covered with velvet.
Kings have many ears and eyes.
Kings are not born: they are made by artificial hallucination.
They say that kings are made in the image of God. If that is what he looks like, I feel sorry for God.
Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown.
Kings fight for empires, madmen for applause.
If you shoot at a king you must kill him.
