King Frank is my fave - cos he did a great job (I bet) without any experience, training or simply because he was son of previous ruler. Also, he wouldn't have had reason to pompous - just a down-to-earth, likeable cabbie.

I think I like Tirian the most, too. He was in a terrible situation seeing his kingdom unravel but he remained faithful to the end. In my opinion, his experience was the most trying.

My favorite king is...King Peter! He was able to get rid of the greatest risk in Narnia of his time, and was also able to lead Narnia through a Golden Age. That's what I think is important

I think my favourite king is Peter... that might change though. I'm still in the process of rereading the books.

The ones we know of all have good points, but I think, depsite that I too would probably be mooning around after Tirian if I knew him, will have to go with WHB - Frank was the original and best..for all the reasons stated. I think not really knowing all the pomp and ceremony that affected the latter kings would have made him a far more considerate ruler.
*wonders why no one's mentioned Caspian yet?*

I know I didn't say Caspian because he wasn't a very strong king because he he needed help from our world 3 times. If he was a strong king, then he wouldn't need help from the kids so many times and found a way to solve the problems himself.

King Frank! He's so humble and gentle, and ready to do Aslan's will with pleasure. I like Caspian as well, and Tirian (not becasue of the description, mind you) he's brave and perseveres in trouble. Me likee King Peter too.

I was so sad the way Caspian turned out in the Silver Chair. I guess I like kings that aren't so comical and frail, you know? And in VTD, he almost left his kingdom and let his men down. I felt so bad for him. Still like him though, but not as much as the others.
