If the “band of brothers” speech alone isn’t enough to do it for you, he is one of those royals who actually does something. The young king goes into battle with his men, constantly rousing them with crowning speeches of awesome, and even goes undercover as a common soldier to get an idea of the general morale and what his subjects really think of him. It is this genuine concern for the people and for his reputation among them that sets him apart, along with his ability as a leader and his heel-face-turn maturity, which blossomed out of almost nowhere.
