The 25-year-old English heir from the Lancaster family was one of the most famous commanders of the Centenary standoff. After the death of his brother, he officially became the successor to the throne, being crowned in Westminster Abbey. On that day, a terrible snowstorm began, and contemporaries have long interpreted this omen as something terrible. The Prince of Wales energetically set to work and eventually built a broad domestic policy. Where the ruler saw benefits for the empire, he acted softly and favorably, restoring the former non-favorites of power, but at the slightest threat his actions were tough and ruthless. He nipped off any riot and resistance, defending his position.
