A Lórien Laurë!

Ok, so I tried googling this and I couldn't find anything. So, let's say I have a king who no longer wants to rule. This king has no children or known successors. Could they pass off their power to pretty much anyone they wanted? If this isn't something that has been done before, do you think it would be a believable course of action in a made up kingdom with magical creatures and such? Thanks!

It depends on what kind of monarchy you’re writing. Until the mid 1300s, the kings were basically the nobles’ bitch for a lot of reasons I covered here. After the Black Death and increased revenue b/c trade, the kings became more authoritarian and the era of absolute monarchs/enlightened despots began.

What does this mean? If your monarchy resembles one prior to the 1400s, it could happen if his nobles agree on the successor. If your monarchy resembles one after the 1400s, then he could probably do it. If he does it anyway, he’d better choose a popular, strong, and smart successor, or someone will dethrone them. Also the nobles would probably lose their hose if the successor was not noble/royal because deeply rooted classism.
