Synopsis of the King

The King usually will refer to a man who has acquired both skill and wisdom, though not necessarily someone who is chronologically mature.

Let the personality of an individual, rather than their age, suggest the power of the King.  The King has taken the development of the Page, the courage and adventure of the Knight and continues to grow and prosper.

With the King, there is a strong sense of mastery, control and respect, especially to themselves. The King knows who he is, both good and bad, and understands that there is always room for improvement.  

The King can also refer to women with a more masculine personality; the King is a leader and guide and will often serve in that role in both business and home life.

His conservatism limits his business opportunities - unwilling to take any risks, big or small, good opportunities pass him by.<p>
