Indentured (Union of Crowns)

By xXxJazzy B. RealxXx

Romance / Drama

Chapter 1

♕ 

Synopsis:

 "I don't know what you're on about; you'll soon be King of Arendelle and Corona."

Upon recovering from Rapunzel's hereditary childbirth ailments, King Eugene must enter a personal union with Arendelle on behalf of Corona's crumbling economy and endangered provinces before the Southern Isles can besiege him. 

The Parliament of Arendelle consents in exchange for hegemony and a heir, while Queen Elsa consents to take protective custody of her cousin's family and country.

 Despite discomfort, both monarchs must learn to make their foreign marriage of convenience endurable.

"I'm counting the minutes just like you are, Eugene..."



"The marriage was concluded for no fleshy consideration, but in order to remedy the disorders of this kingdom (...)"


                                     B E T R O T H A L 


In his first speech to the Coronian King, the chairman of Arendelle delivered an unenthusiastic recital of the Parliament's manifesto:

"The semi-feudal Kingdom of Corona, brother to the semi-industrialized Kingdom of Arendelle through consanguinity, was calamitously ravaged by the Great Famine on the eve of the Summer Solstice. As such, a personal union has been negotiated between both houses to reinstate Corona and forestall enemy invasion from the Southern Isles on the account that Arendelle represent its foreign affairs, pay its debts, fortify its militarization, and obtain unrestricted access to all of its natural resources.

In acknowledgement of our nation's just and reasonable cause, Pope Pius IX has granted a dispensation of incestuous affinity laws to enable holy matrimony between Queen Elsa of Arendelle, cousin of the late Rapunzel, and King Eugene of Corona, former husband of the late Rapunzel. Like Queen Adeltrudis before her, Queen Rapunzel of Corona suffered two miscarriages and one stillborn within the first years of co-regency. The childless monarch was later forced to consider the annulment of succession before hematological pregnancy disorders and obstetrical hemorrhage compromised her last expectancy to a degree in correspondence with her bed-ridden mother's.

 Collaterally, the marriage between Princess Anna and the Prince Consort of Arendelle is, at best, a morganatic impediment, in which neither the spouse of lower rank nor any of their children will seize legality to the throne by constitutional law, thus Queen Elsa is obligated to fulfill her responsibilities in favor of the legislative body's legal order. This unity between power ducts shall reward both nations with preservation and conserve the role of providing able-bodied children to the realms."

―Breathing was becoming harder with each passing second for the Coronian King. His chest felt hard, as if it were filling up with grout and tar calcified together. He didn't expect, nor want, to respond and keep the topic flowing into this smutty direction. He wanted to escape the responsibility of consciousness.

According to the damp, fluttering eyelashes of Queen Elsa, who all but kept her head forward like a celestial priestess in a picture frame, the supporting actress in this stage-managed porno was fighting the exact same desire, if not the very knot in her throat.

"Nevertheless, King Eugene..."―the chairman paused, looking up from the paper with a face as somber as a magistrate appealing for a murder report―"...although you have acceded to King Bjørnard's throne, it would be...incompatible with the ideologies of this kingdom to entitle supreme rulership to a foreigner of formerly questionable birth if and when the Acts of Union have been appraised. I am also told you were an impoverished illegitimate as a result of Duke Herbert's adultery, the latter of whom being the delegitimized heir presumptive to King William IV's throne. Whilst the Pope may have pardoned your other "irregularities" before your marriage to Queen Rapunzel the same way he dismissed Queen Elsa's crimes and―...unfortunate birth, you will not tower the queen in rank."

The cheeks of the Eugene's jaw clenched inwards as he swallowed, but the chairman continued forth with the policy statement:

"In keeping with the conditions of Arendelle's prenuptial Foreign Marriage Act, King Eugene shall only co-reign with Her Majesty should Arendelle and Corona become the United Kingdoms of Arendelle and Corona. As with Queen Mary I's connubiality, the face of both monarchs will appear on coins with a single crown middled between them to signify joint reign, legal contracts will require shared signatories, and the Arendelle snowflake will be dimidiated with the Corona sun on the new coat of arms, but the majority of power will reside with Her Grace, specifically in the summoning and dissolving of Parliament.

Until the Acts of Union have been approved by both legislatures, neither King Eugene nor Queen Elsa will abdicate from separate sovereign states. Their personal union will be divined as the United Crowns of Arendelle and Corona, whilst the nations themselves will not be formally administered as a single region. In correlation with the Union of the Crowns of Castile and Aragon, both shall remain constitutionally distinct entities by retaining independent borders, cabinets, and folkways under Arendelle's hegemony."

Why didn't anyone ever tell him that this would be the ultimate horror?
