Ep. 2.9 – Idle Ambitions of the Fractured Throne

"The ascent to greatness, however steep and dangerous, may entertain an active spirit with the consciousness and exercise of its own power: but the possession of a throne could never yet afford a lasting satisfaction to an ambitious mind.”
– Edward Gibbon, The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire
