Most rulers have [[HotConsort spouses]] and many have [[TheMistress mistresses]] (or [[SpearCounterpart "misters"]], historically ''cicisbeos'') as well. However, often only one of the couple exercises rule and the other is merely to decorate the palace, provide heirs, seal alliances and entertain the king.

* Princess Kristin and Prince Mark rule Tasavalta together in Fred Saberhagen's ''[[BooksOfSwords Books Of Lost Swords]]''. Strictly speaking, Kristin is the ruler, and Mark is her consort, but in practice, the two of them share power. When Kristin was dominated by Murat using the Mindsword, the Tasavaltan army, and the royal court wizard, Karel (who is also Kristin's uncle), obeyed Mark's orders without question.

When he was a child, a [[{{Depowered}} magical binding was put in place]] [[PowerNullifier so he won't be able to use his fire powers]], but a magical scissor removes this biding.
