About This Quiz

Obviously, some people can run a palace primarily just by singing to their animal friends, who then come to their aid by doing all the cooking, cleaning, and necessary repairs. It seems pretty clear that the animals just know what needs doing and that they do it all to high professional standards - and they don't seem very bothered by the fact that they're not being paid. They all work together in perfect unity, and they need no management whatsoever.

Of course, any real princess can tell you that running a real palace is a whole lot more complicated than this. You need all sorts of tiers of management, with multiple departments: from the people whose job is to maintain the physical palace and the workers within it, to those who protect it, to those who keep it fiscally healthy, to those who simply work there in a governing, entertaining, clerical, or religious capacity. That means everyone from the blacksmith to the maids to the sentries to the chamberlain's office to the scribes to the chaplain. It's a huge enterprise, essentially similar to running a midsize company.

Where would you fit into the mix? It's time to find out!
