Working Title: Unretiring Regent: From YKTTW

Grev: Would non-ruler examples work? Such as in the Richie Rich movie, where Richie's parents go missing. Cadbury is the benevolent "regent"-cum-Battle Butler of the Rich estate, but is framed by Big Bad John Larroquette, who then assumes Richie's guardianship and becomes this trope.

Nybbler: Yes, as with the Iron Man example (where it's a corporation instead of a kingdom).
