The way a good king behaves

“And if enemies came against the land (for enemies will arise) and there was war, would you be the first in the charge and the last in the retreat?”- Aslan from The Magician’s Nephew by C. S. Lewis.

Perhaps that may be one of the only cases that separate a good land from a bad one. If a king is close to the commoners, and not too high and mighty to be the first one to fight, and not too high and mighty to take only the same space as the commoners do; then that speaks volumes about the goodness of a land.
