102 – Top 5 Kings

January 13, 2021

A Top 5 fit for a King!

The title of King is one the highest positions of powers that people across the world have yearned and fought for (maybe because you get a fancy crown and comfy velvet robe?). For everyone else, the King meant the ruler of a kingdom who called all the shots, where you just really hoped they were a kind King and not the type that believes in you know…an ol’fashion beheading. But what makes a good King or rather interesting King? This week we’ll find out! Join Tuong La and Royal Court Jesters/ Pull the Plug’s Justin Godelie, Shannon Godelie, and Dan Foerster as they obey the royal decree of the PodCavern and all hail the Top 5 Kings list!

Ground Rules

  • Just for fun we are also pitting real kings vs fictional kings because it’s Ranked and we do that here
  • If the indvidual has “King” in the title it would technically count.
  • Someone whose regarded as a king but doesn’t necessarily come from “royal blood’ still counts.
  • That said, we don’t want to veer too far away from the spirit of the topic today so the list should still comprise of mostly what you would consider a traditional king and not all gag nominations where “king” happens to be in their name.
  • We are ranking on interesting kings not necessarily just “good kings”. For example the king could be a total jackass as long as they are interesting enough to back it up.
