She wasn't one of those Disney princesses that came with tragedies and prince charmings. No. She was all about running her kingdom, making sure her subjects were happy and her economy was stable. All with the help of her loyal band of highest officers.
The Prime Minister was second in command. Besides helping preside over the financial matters of the Kingdom and planning new projects, she was also the Princess' personal counselor. She was always the first person the Princess consulted and ran to in tears of sadness or joy. She was a good listener and was always straightforward with her remarks.
The Wizard was once a King in his own right. His kingdom however, was bought by younger, more greedy Princes and he was then exiled to an island where he learned the art of magic from a hermit. He was then sent to be a mentor and guide to the Princess, steering her out of trouble and teaching her skills to become a good leader.
The Bard ventured into the Kingdom one day without much to his name except for a lute in his hand and a few shillings in his pocket. As he was knocking on doors searching for work, the Prime Minister happened to bump into him and offered him a job at the Princess' court. From then on, he entertained her with his jokes and songs.
The Knight lead the Princess' army. Since their Kingdom was not keen on invading other lands, they did not need many warriors but those few that were drafted were the best ones out of many of the surrounding lands and had great defense. He always knew which of the Princess' buttons to push to annoy her and did so frequently.
The Executioner doubled up as the Kingdom's sheriff. He brought justice to the Kingdom and ensured that everyone acted by the books. Petty crimes were sometimes overlooked, when it caused more fun then harm. His trademark punishment was Death By Tickles, reserved only to those who incurred the wrath of the Princess.
The Secretary kept all the books and reports in check. She always jotted down the minutes of the meetings and kept everything in written form in place. She was extremely organized and was sometimes seen cleaning after the Princess even though it wasn't in her job description. She was also the Princess' Secret Keeper.
The Head Chef was in charge of making the Princess happy because in this Kingdom, the way to the Princess' heart is through her stomach. She was also in charge of the frequent banquets and cocktail parties and those who ate them always praised her dishes. She had a habit of serving warm meals in the middle of late night meetings to please the Court.
