I, The Dragon Overlord Chapter 469 - The Battle for the Throne

Subila Kingdom Palace.

Inside the once luxurious and exquisite palace hung a sad solemn atmosphere. The security of the palace was two times stricter. With every three steps, there was a post and with every five there was a sentry. The maids who were rushing by also lowered their heads, afraid of making a sound that would lead them to tragic ends.

The emperor’s chamber could no longer be called that as the ruler of the Subila Kingdom could only be called a king. He had long lost the throne of the empire when the empire was divided under the influence of the gods. Although there was a war, there was no longer any possibility of unity no matter who won.

Without tax revenue and support from other territories, the kingdom was gradually becoming financially strapped. In the past, the Subila Empire occupied nearly the entire continent of the west. It was a territory that was rich in mineral resources that could supply the consumption of the capital city.

“I’m sorry, Princess Andrea! No one is allowed to enter the king’s chambers without permission from His Highness Crown Prince Aldrich and the Second Prince Amos.”

In front of the former emperor’s chambers, a well-equipped knight stationed there stopped Princess Andrea.

Wearing a gorgeous palace dress, the angelic young girl gazed at the knight in front of her with innocent and somewhat sad eyes, “Am I, as the daughter of my father, also not allowed to enter?”

Princess Andrea’s reputation in the Subila Empire was extremely prominent. With her beautiful face, she had been dubbed as the Subilan Pearl and was even popular among her subjects. In the past, she was a true imperial pearl who lived a carefree life and helped the poor. She even asked for help from the emperor on behalf of the pe
