Scheming King

My three sons are all brave and clever, but I’m worried that they’re going to make a grab for my crown before I go to my grave.

I would prefer to spend my old age in peace, so I’m working on a scheme. I’ll get them to compete for rewards. (Between you and me, I don’t intend to bestow them, not now, not ever.)
