The Reason for Marriage - Chapter 66.2 (Epilogue)
When she first came to the palace, Iveca, who was only looking at everyone with difficulty, gradually began to overcome her fear of people after learning the whole truth.
Having found stability with the love of Daniel and the staff of the Bureau of Investigation, she also began to interact with the maids who had initially stayed away for inconvenience. Contrary to the assumption that everyone would despair themselves in the process, she was surprised that there were noble girls who wanted to get to know her more than she expected, contrary to her guess that everyone would look down on her.
“Just as not everyone is in favor of the Great Constitution, not all nobles are against it, My Queen.”
Meanwhile, the close-knit Viscount Ellebon spoke softly.
“Amethan is better than being a battlefield. The revolutionary forces are divided into two and fighting… it’s terrible to see blood shed like that.”
The existence of the Great Constitution alone has changed the atmosphere of Amethan considerably. The elite, who were dissatisfied with the system, began to study the rule of law, not republicanism, and Iveca promised sufficient communication and drew a clear line on the right to blindly insist.
Doubts about rationality, fairness, authority, and at the same time doubts about one’s own beliefs…. The things like Iveca emphasized were fairly universal values and were supported by quite a lot of intellectuals.
She believed that if she made a good start like this, it would encourage everyone to be more reasonable in the future generations and times.
And there were definitely people cheering on the road.
“And there are so many young people who want to make friends with you.”
“You’re the Queen. You are also favored by His Majesty.”
Iveca realized that there were now people who valued the status of “Queen of Amethan”, rather than her as the “Lady of the Esselburn Family”. There were as many people who thought, “What does it matter?”, as those who shook their heads, saying, “There is nothing we can do about our birth.”
“But if I don’t get involved in politics, what’s the benefit of being close to me?”
She asked habitually, then just shut up and shook her head. It wasn’t necessary to get along with all the people.
So she went to the banquet, and when she was invited to a tea time, she attended without refusing as long as the schedule was right, and had conversations with the maids.
Not everyone was in favor of her, but she knew very well that it was impossible to be loved by everyone anyway. Esselburn didn’t get along with her until the end. Maybe it’s impossible for the rest of her life. Even when she met her sisters or mother at a banquet, she greeted them awkwardly, did not have a heart-to-heart conversation, and Ewill no longer stepped into the Royal Palace.
She didn’t feel that bad. It was because she thought it would be more difficult to live like a cow all her life and changed her attitude like turning her hand over when she became a Queen.
Some of the nobles, even if they were not family members, had similar personalities with her, and they came to visit the Queen’s Palace for Iveca or became a horse riding partner.
“Congratulations on your pregnancy, my Queen.”
“This is a baby hat that I made myself. I made my kid’s hat myself also.”
On sunny days, Iveca used to have tea time with her new friends in the garden where the flowers bloomed beautifully and the autumn leaves were beautifully colored. Thanks to the baby who came before the cold winter. She was able to receive all kinds of congratulations and blessings under the blue autumn sky.
The whole palace was excited by the news of the King and Queen’s first baby. Daniel was thinking about what to name the child. Iveca was busy preparing to greet the baby with a good heart because there was a scandal about her birth, but there was no bad reputation for her personality.
“Baby bed, rattle, pure cotton blanket and pillow…”
“You’d better plant a lot of ethereal grass. I don’t want the baby to get bitten by insects.”
“The Queen’s diet will be inspected by the medical department from now on, and you’ll have to record everything you eat.”
Iveca was often embarrassed by the excessive protection and goodwill, but inside she felt good. Congratulations poured out wherever she went. The Bureau of Investigation began to pay more attention to her safety, and baby gifts piled up in front of the royal palace.
“I don’t know how many congratulatory messages are pouring out among the common people.”
Reina laughed with pride.
“When did you become so popular among the commoners… It’s probably because of the Great Constitution. She’s already been nicknamed “The Second Eve.”
As the time passed, the interest of the newborn baby increased rather than subsided. After a long winter, as spring came and Iveca’s stomach swelled, her every move was a concern in the royal palace.
