I've been trying to type this guy; I have some ideas but perhaps someone has a better insight.
Here are the bare facts:
- hereditary monarch, so he did not have to do anything to climb to power
- wielded near absolute power, so his actions can be seen as result of his functional preferences
- spent as little time as possible actually governing, leaving that to appointed subordinates
- spent as much time as possible in sports, taking long baths, and sex
- usually did not care about what was going on, except when he felt threatened - then he would spring to ruthless action (which usually meant executing the guys who happened to be doing the actual governing)
- enjoyed sycophancy and extravagant honours - people had to kiss his ass constantly
- a superb athlete and skilled in many sports - that was really his interest, even obsession
- had no qualms about putting his sister to death because of conspiracy
I know that he sounds like an asshole, but he also had a type.
Does the above suggest any obvious types?
