After months of opposing claims, discrediting acts and revelations, a plot by the secret society of the Immaculate Circle to usurp the crown by proxy of Eutropia's long-dead and forcibly resurrected brother Carrius II, and an assassination attempt resulting in Eutropia's brief death and subsequent resurrection, Eutropia is ultimately crowned the legitimate Grand Princess of Taldor and names Carrius II as her heir.67
