For the purpose of verifying the truth, Licht and the others attempt infiltration of the royal capital. Instead of facing thousands of troops directly, they try a more sneaky approach by dressing everyone up as women. Licht dressed up as a woman, while a mortified jail got all the attention from the soldiers.
Since Grigorovich was the only one who treated the king as a child as she grew up, it may appear that the King and Grigorovich are at odds. As the king reaches marriageable age, she intends to make Grigorovich the new ruler of Althea by selecting him as her groom.
As a result of all this planning, the Wind Emperor Robert assassinates the young King and the other generals, and then accuses Grigorovich of being guilty!
