The Queen would like to “tidy”up the less pleasant history stories but knows the outcry from Eileen, L’Evallier, most of the Council and even FNN means that it is not worth even attempting to do this. Even she can only cope with so much criticism at a time. She does sometimes feel disillusioned given the records show her ancestors rarely took well to criticism. She has to put up with it. The Kingdom has moved on. Eileen sees this as the point of history - learn from it, move on and don’t make the same mistakes.
Eileen had to read the life histories of all heirs to the Fairy Kingdom throne. All heirs had to do this so she is merely continuing a tradition. Most of the stories were very lively. Some of the heirs survived and went on to inherit. A lot did not. Eileen sees having to read these as an official warning from the authorities as a whole and resents it. Still the stories are gripping and she’s always liked that. It’s just a pity from her viewpoint that these stories are factual. It’s also annoying given The Great Rebel as she’s been called has a lot to do to overcome the antics of her predecessors. And that annoys a lady who likes to think she’s the best!
Eileen is one of the few to make Kingdom history being the only fairy godmother ever to defect to marry a mere human man. Not that she had making history on her mind when she did this. Nor does her daughter appreciate the making history bit either. Jenny was even less impressed on discovering her royal connections. The Kingdom may hate the idea of possibly having a half-human monarch. They don’t hate the idea as much as she does though. Gwendolyn’s history is kept as quiet as possible though everyone knows how the dragon destroyed the erring ruler. And dragons don’t go anywhere by accident...
Gwendolyn didn’t set out to cause trouble but found the restrictions surrounding being monarch suffocating. She sought love - on other dimensions and with other species, including humans. She left partners - with devastating consequences when one, and their child, went over to the dark side. The Chief Witch, who was that child, do have a genuine complaint against the late ruler. Gwendolyn set up the Council system to help her govern the realm, which made it easier for her to go travelling, but eventually they turned against her and arranged her death by conveniently placed dragon. She is the example of what not to do.
The Kingdom came into existence the moment evil entered the universe. Evil encourages evil creatures. Where evil exists good needs to counteract it. And the Kingdom is as split between good and evil as any other universe including our own. The use of power and influence is split equally too. The magical realm, led by the fairies, is generally proud that it can and does rein evil in though it usually has to do so by physical fighting. The fairies’ argument is if they didn’t do this, well an evil magical world is not exactly something you want able to wreak havoc everywhere. Eileen is not entirely happy with this attitude, believing in itself this covers up a lot of evil. Eileen feels that where reconciliation is a possibility, it should be pursued. Despite her own marvellous fighting pedigree, Eileen and to a lesser extent Fresdian are the nearest the realm gets to pacifists.
