It did not take long for the soldiers and townsfolk to rise up their tyrannical leader. But when they armed themselves and marched against him, Hewes moved them down without a second thought. How dare they expect so much from him, making unreasonable demands and criticizing his choices. How could they hold him, their almighty sovereign, in such low regard? And so Hewes made a decision: he saved this kingdom, and he could destroy it too.
Hewes is an English surname; patronymic from Welsh and Scottish masculine name Hew, a variant of English Hugh, derived from the Germanic element hug, meaning "heart, mind, spirit".
