I created the monarchy of my two planets similiar to this however they have and wield the power, though the one King does maintain a council while both make sure the populace is happy
The Kings and royalty are pro-country first before personal, the throne is also where the allegiance is directed, not to a person but to the throne.
As for the religion, the Kings, one more along agnostic while the other King is devoted. there is a religious hierarchy that runs the religion and not the royalty.
However in the book, either King or royalty can be prosecuted and dealt with for committing murder, treason, or belonging to an forbidden brotherhood.
Book of the Dead of Ramose… today there was a live showing of the book that will be on display for one day only… the 22nd at the Fitzwilliam Museum ….
“Dating from 1290 – 1275 BC, The Book of the Dead of Ramose is one of the finest examples of this type of funerary papyrus to have survived from ancient Egypt. It was discovered by Flinders Petrie in a tomb at a site called Sedment, south of Cairo, and brought to the Fitzwilliam Museum in 1922.
Since then it has had very little exposure to light and thus the vibrant colours of its illustrative vignettes are very well preserved. In 2007, after a period of conservation, it was displayed, in sections, in a short exhibition at the museum, and a small section was also included in last year’s Death on the Nile exhibition.”

The Allegory of the Long Spoons is from an ancient source though the original inspiration and accounting is not known. However it appears this kind of story is common place, telling of how corporation and respect for people result in a healthy society.
The story is not exclusive Judeo-Christian as many may think, but can be found in many of the world’s religion in one form or another. And is that not truly what the the base for all religions, to cooperate and make society pleasant for all, to care of the unfortunate that we may become one day.
I have seen in so many unkind comments, that in today’s world sadly it seems people prefer the version of hell than that of heaven.. to let their fellow man be denounced, mocked, injured, and let starve rather than to see beyond the veil of ignorance and hate
