King Winston was away from the capital on an incursion when his brother Louis attempted to arrogate the throne. He couldn't have dared to orchestrate all this if not for the support of the nobles who were distraught with the draconian drive initiated by the king aimed at seizing the illegally accrued properties and wealth. These nobles felt betrayed as they were the ones who once helped Winston seize the throne by dethroning his uncle King Walter who was an excessively devout person and allowed so much power to the faith in an act of reconciling the clergy with the throne. The nobility regarded this much latitude to the clerics as inimical to their personal interests and ramped up their efforts in later years to depose this overbearingly pious king. The nephew and heir to the throne Winston was started to be seen as an amiable alternative to the king. He was always willing to listen to them whenever they approached him and also never approved of his uncle's mollycoddling of the priests. As the king didn't have any offspring yet , the nobles saw an opportune moment in this and instigated Winston to seize the throne. Although without the significant support across the kingdom any uprising would've amounted to treason and the significant powers ceded to the faith had also bound the whole clergy to the king's cause. Moreover the clergy had promulgated the king to be the voice of god on earth and his decisions being indicative of god's will. As there were so many god fearing people in the kingdom an open rebellion against the king was bound to fail. The nobles had to resort to some other way in order to bring about the regime change........
