Chapter 25: A Competitive Examination
King Arthur makes judgment against a newlywed couple and in favor of the local bishop. He also favors the noble borne in competitive examination for officership in a new standing army, as opposed to selecting graduates of Hank's West Point Academy. Hank finds a solution by suggesting a regiment to include, automatically, all noble borne, and a second regiment consisting of common folk officered by graduates of the academy. This solves another problem that had been bothering Hank, the Royal Grant, the gifting of all borne into the Pendragon clan.
