Judging by the age of the onyx knight guy + the age of Charioce when he was sworn in as king I highly doubt that's the case. The whole thing was that they'd been working on Dromos for like, ten years, which seems about right for their ages.> suggests they even went through several kings during the project
Is there? I kind of doubt that.> Cheerios says something about his path to the throne being bloody at one time> at the other he says he was "invited". Which mught mean by the "blood" he understand all the other heirs the nobles have disposed off
I think the bloody ascension Cheerios talks about is in reference to making it so that the other nobles accepted him as king, not killing within the family, that was the whole reason that Cheerios was 'invited', because all other ((or maybe just 'most' other)) heirs got killed during Bahamut's attack, they literally didn't have anyone else to turn to in the royal line except for the kid of some ex-concubine.
As it is, Charioce definitely doesn't seem the 'stand back and watch' type when it comes to anything, we see him on the front lines of battles enough, as well as see him overseeing Dromos's construction that I imagine he's got to be the one pushing the project forward with everything he has, I mean, he didn't even want to go to balls and parades and shit, but the noble guy basically says he has to in order to get money for Dromos and his war against the angels/demons.
