* Okay so throughout the games, the heroes eem to only be killable by other heroes right? Except for Rose, your sister from the second game who is killed by lucien. However this happens after she winds the music box, whixh is later used to drain the 3 heroes powers. The reason she was able to dies was because the box stole her powers including her only by hero weakness. And judging from how Theresa seems to want the spire it's possible she had the merchant lie about it's properties soley to give you a reason to want revenge on Lucien!

** Or maybe she wasn't a hero in the first place. For example, Logan, the Prince(ss)' bigger brother and king in Fable 3, does not demonstrate any heroic ability. He does not have "magic" marks like Will users, and he is never shown using weaponry. However, it might be possible that he is adopted, but that wouldn't be able to explain why the King/Queen in Fable 2 chose an adopted child over his own biological child. And even then, the Hero in Fable 3 requires the aid of special gauntlets to be able to cast magic

* This is a game where you can decapitate someone with ''lightning''. Anything's a cutting edge if you try hard enough...

** [[FridgeBrilliance Fridge Brilliance]]: Lucien had your family killed near the end of Fable II. Maybe the canonical Hero of Bowerstone chose either Sacrifice (which might explain how he became popular enough to be crowned King) or Money (which would certainly explain how he could afford to buy up most of Albion). Either way, not picking the Love ending means whatever family you had are gone, which would explain why they aren't around in III.

* I'm not sure it was the katana he was using. After all, he had those spiky villain-gauntlets on. I always thought that was what he cut her throat with.

* The much-exploited real estate system and the implications of said exploitation can make a lot of things make sense. Especially the aftermath of Fable II's ending and how Sparrow's line become the royal dynasty. Wasn't it because s/he toppled Lucian and saved the world, leading to the grateful Albionese to crown 'em? Well, to some degree. But in the real world- and especially the Medieval and Renaissance world- you didn't tend to win the hand of the King's Daughter or a Crown just from saving the day; it tended to rely on a mixture of [[IOwnThisTown Property]], [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney Money]] and [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority military/combat power to expand your grasp or at least protect your investments]]. A lot of the first post-Roman Kings and nobles tended to be either warlords, landowners who were able to buy up their neighborhood and make it their own, or a combo of both. So if you win the game and buy up a sizable amount- if not all- of the real estate, what have you done? By winning the quest you killed Lord Lucian, who in addition to being an OmnicidalManiac and threat to everybody and everything was the big powerbroker before, and you did it because you are a OneManArmy capable of killing anybody who looks at you funny. And by buying up the property, you've made yourself landlord of more or less all of Albion, making the people living there your tenants and giving you both control over the territory and more money than you'd know what to do with. You saying IOwnThisTown isn't a boast, it's an accurate summary of the property laws and even an understatement. So with the control over combat power, property, and money you established between those two, you basically made yourself the top FeudalOverlord of Albion by the end of the game, giving you more than enough power to protect yourself and enforce your will and enough money and property to build a functioning government and country out of. So, if you're already King/Queen in all but name, why not make it official and give your children something to pass on?

*The main hero and his old brother from Fable III are the children of the the main hero from Fable II. However considering your actions in Fable II, you could have any number of children. This means that either all of your children died somewhere along the line or you disowned them as none of them are ever mentioned or seen living in the castle.

* Remember what happened to Rose in the beginning of ''Fable II''? How she died in the castle? Well, her wish was likely, "I wish we could spend the rest of our lives in Lord Lucien's castle!" Well, her wish did, in fact come true in a horrible, LiteralGenie/JerkassGenie way. She spent the rest of her life walking around inside Lord Lucien's castle before he shot her. Your character eventually [[spoiler: becomes king/queen]] and possibly spends the rest of his/her life inside the castle as well!

** On the other hand, it could be considered Selfcest, which is not quite as Squick if you don't really think about it too much.
