About This Quiz

You might not think that you want a job in the Royal Court, but when it comes right down to it, what are your alternatives? Of course being the king would be great, but let's face it - if everyone could be the king, then everyone would be the king. The best thing you can hope for is a steady gig in the royal court. It is better than being a peasant after all.

Now that we have that settled, what would you do? There are so many different options, some more intriguing than others. One thing that is pretty much certain is that you don't want to be a royal taster. You could probably handle being a jester if you are funny at least, but that seems a bit humiliating. You could be a regular old servant or a bodyguard, but does that kind of thing pay enough?  Maybe you might like to be a chaplain, or an advisor, or even the hand of the king? Much better pay and prestige there, but a lot of pressure as well. 

What kind of job might you be best at in the Royal Court? Don't be the Royal Fool - take this quiz and find out.
