Quandary Resolution 3710
paragon, heir apparent, piquant, aperçu

There was no apparent heir when good King Egbert died childless, until the castle cook revealed that the orphan boy raised to help in the scullery was actually his bastard son – the true heir apparent-- and that he was well suited for his new station in life having had an aperçu of royal activities from the sidelines; plus, he was a paragon of honest hard work, well versed in the travails of the under classes (whose betterment was a pet project of the late ruler), and had a taste for the piquant dishes preferred by his father.
