Winterfell territory that was located in the North wasn't even originally a part of the kingdom territory.
This land was subjugated to the royal family 100 years ago, but some of the Northern people didn't even consider themselves a citizen of the Kingdom.
Their culture was also quite different from the South, and for that reason, the capital nobles often ignored the Northern people and considered them barbaric.
They were seen as savages, so they kept trying to interfere in the Northerns affairs.
Wasn't the fact that the South could be prosperous and safe thanks to the Northerners guarding the North border? In a way, it was natural that the loyalty of the Northern lords toward the King died down.
The consequences of clashing with the Northern lords and trained military forces embracing a different mind were obvious.
And from the perspective of the Duke of Balazit, such a situation would be an uneasy one.
“I think there are two reasons why he is trying to promote this marriage.
First, to prevent Northern lords from forming a marriage alliance.
And to plant a spy in the middle of the enemy camp.”
“If the spy sees any signs of rebellion, it will reach the Duke's ear immediately.”
“I thought so.
I never imagined the Duke would use his child like this.”
As long as he could endure a tiny bit of shame, that plan would be very effective.
If it was a marriage that had been schemed behind their back, there should be some way to put it off.
However, Glenn couldn't do that as the rumors regarding this marriage had already spread across the country.
How could they use a triumphal celebration to attract people's attention like that?
“I don't know who is behind this.
It gives me a headache.”
“But it sure is effective.”
“Except for the fact that the Duke put his daughter's future at stake.”
What was he going to do if the plan went wrong and the marriage with Glenn didn't take place? As long as Glenn accepted her heart, he didn't have to take further responsibility, did he?
All Glenn could say was that the Balazits were out of their mind.
When he remembered the face of the young woman hanging on to him just because she loved him, his head began to ache again.
It made Glenn bury his forehead in his hand.
Then, his aide opened his mouth again with a careful voice.
“By the way, it's about Sir Lee Jiho.””
“According to our man who was on the altar at the celebration, he looked very flustered when Lady Nadia offered her laurel wreath to you.”
“Yes, it seemed like he thought Lady Nadia would offer him the wreath.”
At that time, Glenn didn't notice any of that because he didn't have time to look at Lee Jiho's reaction.
In fact, Glenn also thought it was Lee Jiho's until she gave him a wreath.
Lee Jiho was the hand-foot-and-mouth of Duke Balazit.
Hence, it was strange in many ways that he didn't know the Duke's plan in advance.
