What Would You Be?

If you could take any role in a medieval royal household, what would it be? King, queen, éminence grise? Jester, porter, man at arms or the maid who mops the floor? Tell us why!

  1. Definitely the eminence grise – then I could have all the opinions I liked, with no responsibility for the outcome!

  2. If there is evidence that the EG won’t have his head lopped off for bad advice I might go with that. I didn’t see that evidence on Wiki. Otherwise I’d probably go for the maid. She gets fed and sleeps in fairly decent chambers and there is little expected of her other than mopping the floor. In an almost inevitable uprising no one is bothered about the maid, she is invisible.
