Being third in line for the throne, and the only woman among her two siblings, meant that Everilda would never be able to see the view of the kingdom from the seat of the pyrite throne in her lifetime.

She was constantly told growing up by her parents and brothers, that women could never be effective leaders. A Queen was nothing without a King. Everilda would be nothing.

Bitterness wasn't born. Hatred wasn't born. Ruthlessness wasn't born. It was planted, like a seed. A poisoned seed, that twisted and coiled within her until her family had created a toxic being that could melt stone.  Being told she would get nothing all her life, created a person who now wanted everything.

A King was nothing without a Queen, and in this story Kings would become nothing due to the actions of one Queen.  For a Queen would always be a Kings undoing.  She would seize it all.
