REBELLIONS

Throughout history there have been rebellions against regimes. Some of them were successful while others were crushed by the ruling government. In medieval times, rebellions were put down ruthlessly and violently. Thousands of men, women, and children were put to the sword whether if they were peasants or noble houses. Homes and towns were put to the torch whether if they were humble villages or grand castles. In my fantasy book, the main character will have to put down a rebellion early in their campaign and the manner in which they do it will make you question if they are a benevolent ruler or a ruthless tyrant. How much blood will they shed to maintain order? This will add some moral ambiguity to the main character’s story and character development.
