kings and conflict

The oldest brother has been hailed as king. 

The next oldest, who thinks his mother's superior birth should trump the oldest brother's  older status, is about to revolt.  Taking advantage of a superstition that a king without brothers to support him is bound to loss.

I know what happens after -- including the oldest brother's revealing yet another brother in the mess -- but first I have to put in the point where the next oldest has him almost at his mercy, until he manages to escape -- alone and without any ally.  

Still got to work out how he corners him.

Hmm -- maybe I could put that foreign wizard to work. Was thinking I was using too little of her.
