......It would've proved to be a folly if the nobles had tried to bring down king walter on some flimsy pretext because apart from the king's loyalists he had the backing of his biggest beneficiary I.e. the clergy. The clerics had influenced this pious king to such a degree that he didn't dare to turn down their any proposal . He gave many important positions to these priests in his court as well.
All these developments flustered the nobles so much that in one of their covert meetings with prince Wintson one of the youngest among the nobles apparently  suggested the genocide of these lice ridden priests and all of their devotees.  This utterance had enraged the prince because his own mother was one of the biggest devotees and was in charge of persuading other women across the realm to adopt this newly found faith.
The oldest and most sagacious among the nobles was lord Beniffer. He knew it really well that the subtle approach was more efficacious and fruitful than the blatant one. So he was totally against open instigation and violence. He strongly forbade inflammatory speeches against the king and the clerics within his own council as well because a few of his noblemen had come out to be the disciples of the faith and any sort of open defiance would've scuttled all his ploy.
Prince Winston endorsed his views as well. 
Beniffer was not oblivious of the consequences his ploy would bring about if it were to fail. He knew the king could condone his nephew but the nobles would never be spared and might as well be sentenced to death........
