    Summary

    There was no Queen in the Queen's bower. She'd long ago died.

    There was no King on the throne. He'd given it up to be Mothered by his daughters.

    That left only a Kingdom with holes in the middle. Even the Fool could see war was coming.

    Goneril was no fool. She could regret the coming war. But with the memory of her Mother's chides in her ear, she'd ever press on. After all the stars have no feet to guide us to the deeds we do.
