Thorian Rhys’s plan is very simple, that is, be courteous first and then attack with force, and mainly focus on persuading surrender and recruiting peace.
If the four rebel princes are willing to surrender to the palace, then the palace can forget about it and ensure that their power remains unchanged.
Otherwise, it can only be suppressed by force.
At that time, in the name of quelling the rebellion, the palace will unite with the other four princes and many forces in West Lucozia to kill the rebels!
When war is unavoidable, quick resolution is the best option.
After listening to Thorian Rhys’s words, Cornelius Ao nodded and said solemnly: “The power I have today is all given by your father, let alone sending troops to quell the chaos, even if it means offering my head on my neck. , no matter what!”
“Uncle Cornelius is serious! With your support, we will definitely be able to get through this difficulty!” Thorian Rhys said domineeringly.
“This is my princely order. With it, the troops and horses of Shanguan City are at your disposal!” Cornelius Ao suddenly took out his military talisman and handed it over.
Practical actions are not as convincing as words.
“This…” Thorian Rhys hesitated.
He didn’t expect Cornelius Ao to be so straightforward and send the military talisman without saying a word.
This move shows his loyalty.
“Don’t refuse. We do extraordinary things in extraordinary times. With this prince’s order, you can do it more conveniently.” Cornelius Ao directly put the military talisman into Thorian Rhys’s hand.
“Uncle Cornelius is so righteous! This junior admires him!”
Thorian Rhys clasped his fists and said with a serious face: “When we get through this difficult time, I will definitely come to thank you!”
“Okay, okay, don’t be polite. Time is running out. I won’t keep you here as a guest. Go back.” Cornelius Ao waved his hand.
“Junior, take your leave!”
Thorian Rhys bowed deeply and left with a few people.
The first stop tonight was unexpectedly smooth. After only half an hour of talking, we got the support of Cornelius Ao, Marquis of Pingyang, and got the order from the princes to dispatch troops and generals.
It would be great if we could continue at this pace.
“Uncle Cornelius has gained a lot of weight after not seeing each other for many years, but his loyalty remains unchanged.”
After walking out of the Hou Mansion, Thorian Rhys couldn’t help but sigh.
“Rufus Rhys has been in charge of West Lucozia for many years and has been welcomed by the public. Although there are some ambitious people under his command, most of them are loyal and brave people.” Dustin said.
“Yes, with my father’s majesty, if I stay in West Lucozia forever, there will be peace forever. It’s a pity…” Thorian Rhys shook his head.
Whether it is Dustin Kate or the four rebellious princes, the reason why they have been peaceful in these years is because they respect their father.
Now that their father has passed away, these people no longer have any scruples, and their ambitions naturally emerge.
“Where to go next?” Dustin asked again.
“Following the optimal route, we will go to Wuyue City to meet Xuanping Hou Zhou Bo.” Thorian Rhys said domineeringly.
“Let’s go.” Dustin nodded.
No nonsense, just get in the car and leave.
The four major princes each guarded a city and had many soldiers and horses under their command. In the past, they only listened to the orders of the army and no one would obey.
Now that Rufus Rhys has passed away, given their status, it is obviously not an easy task to persuade the four major princes to send troops to quell the chaos.
Tonight is destined to be a sleepless night.
In the early morning, the vehicle drove into Wuyue City and finally stopped at the Xuanping Marquis Mansion.
Zhou Bo, the Marquis of Xuanping, was also a tycoon. When he was young, he fought with Rufus Rhys to conquer the world. He only gained today’s glory with scars all over his body.
“Thorian, I know Zhou Bo. Different from Cornelius Ao’s loyalty and bravery, this person is more philistine and has the shrewdness of a businessman. I’m afraid it won’t be easy for him to give his full support.” Dustin reminded.
“Brother, I know it in my heart. No matter what the cost, I have to convince him.” Thorian Rhys’s eyes were firm.
“Okay, I’ll wait and see what happens.” Dustin nodded.
Thorian Rhys took out his badge, walked to the door of the Hou Mansion, and showed his identity.
After a commotion, Thorian Rhys and others were quickly invited in.
After entering the main hall and taking a seat, the maid served cakes and fragrant tea, and the hospitality was very thoughtful.
After waiting for about a few minutes, Xuanping Hou Zhou Bo, wearing pajamas, finally walked in.
“Hey! Young prince, what kind of wind brings you here?”
After seeing Thorian Rhys, Zhou Bo looked surprised.
“Uncle Zhou, please forgive me for disturbing you late at night, but I do have something urgent.” Thorian Rhys clasped his fists.
“Young prince, have you encountered some difficulties?” Zhou Bo asked doubtfully.
“There are indeed difficulties…”
Thorian Rhys did not hide anything and told the story in detail.
After listening, Zhou Bo couldn’t help but look shocked: “What? The prince was assassinated? All the four princes in the north rebelled? The gaffe is so serious?”
“I wouldn’t dare to trouble Uncle Zhou unless it was absolutely necessary.” Thorian Rhys said domineeringly.
“So, it is indeed a big trouble!”
Zhou Bo frowned, thought for a moment, and then asked: “Little prince, what do you need me to do?”
“Uncle Zhou, the four princes in the north are ungrateful and openly rebelling. I have sent people to persuade them to surrender. If they are willing to surrender, then everything will be fine. But if they are stubborn, we must prepare for the worst. When the time comes, we will also ask Zhou Uncle sent troops to quell the chaos with the palace!” Thorian Rhys clasped his fists.
Hearing this, Zhou Bo showed a troubled look: “Little prince, I am getting old. I just want to spend my old age in peace and lead troops to fight. I am really powerless!”
“Uncle Zhou, you have many soldiers and generals, and your prestige is extremely high. There are some things that you don’t have to personally come forward for. As long as you are willing to support the palace to put down the chaos, it will be fine.” Thorian Rhys retreated and asked for second place.
“Young prince, it’s not that I don’t want to take action. It’s just that leading troops to fight will lead to death. I only have so much wealth, and I plan to leave it to future generations for happiness. If it’s all gone, what should I do?” Zhou Bo shook his head.
“Uncle Zhou, if West Lucozia is torn into pieces, then your Wuyue City may not be spared either.”
Thorian Rhys said with a serious face: “With the whole family, how can there be any eggs? Once the chaos comes, no one can survive alone. Uncle Zhou, you are not only doing it for the palace, but also for yourself, and for the peace of future generations!”
