Kenneth the Huge is the current king of Serenia.

BackgroundEdit

Kenneth married Princess Priscilla of Serenia following her having been turned down by the wanderer. He inherited the throne from King George IV through marriage to the King's daughter. He and his Queen have legislated peace, love, and harmony between all. The penalties for breaching those laws are severe.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The name Kenneth maybe an in-joke in reference to Ken Williams as it is often used as such in many of the Sierra games and related products.
  • According to the King's Quest Companion, Princess Priscilla never married the Wanderer, instead marrying Kenneth after the wanderer had turned down the king's invitation. Not much is actually known about Kenneth. The 'marriage' offer idea only appears in a couple of versions of the game (and mostly in the manuals), but most versions of Wizard and the Princess end with the obtaining a adventurer certificate instead, see WATP/AIS transcript.
  • The knight Sir Kenneth is mentioned in The Floating Castle. He and Kenneth the Huge are likely separate individuals, as Kenneth is known to have married Priscilla several years before the KQ5 era. The main events of Floating Castle take place around the time KQ5 begins (perhaps shortly before). It's also less likely that he would have maintained his 'knighthood' to return to help Daventry after becoming a 'king', if they were the same person.
