Quandary Resolution 5247
primogeniture, subduct, antic, chattel
As his father Lucian's first born child, through primogeniture Thespian inherited a huge estate which comprised extensive holdings in real estate, along with valuable chattels including an art collection valued at over $100,000,000.00; however, the executor of his father's estate quickly requested the probate court appoint a conservator to manage Thespian's affairs when his obsession with Hamlet led him to don Renaissance attire, "put an antic disposition on," wander about gazing at a skull named "Yorick," and generally behave in a way to subduct the family reputation.
