Little Lord Fauntleroy

The people were terrified that the horrible dictator king would continue to harass and tyrannize all of his subjects.  King George had lost one of his eyes and the people would always repeat that old idiom, “In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king”, which completly infuriated him.  He lacked charisma, he was unattractive and he had zero personal magnetism, which led his kingdom into deciding to over throw him.  He struck a deal to take back his throne by playing a winner-take-all game of Texas Hold Em Poker with little Lord Fauntleroy.  King George had three queens, but the young and handsome Fauntleroy had a pair of kings in his pocket and two kings were showing on the table.  Since 4 kings always beats 3 queens, King George was now banished from the kingdom forever.
