In Visigoth Hispania, the most common method of succession was assassination. King Basis reigned Hispania, and he lived in his castle with his son, Tales. Basis was a good king who cared for the citizens of Hispania and had a form of government that everyone accepted. However, his son Tales was a cruel person who only cared about himself and wanted to become the king of Hispania. To accomplish that, he would have to kill his father, so he devised a plan.
One day, King Basis received a letter that read, “Your reign will end soon.” When the king read the letter, he got scared thinking they wanted to kill him. After a while, a strange-looking man came to the castle. That night, the king received another letter saying, “It will be your last day.” The king got more scared and decided to lock himself in his suite and sleep.
The next morning, his son Tales appeared dead in his room. Nobody knew what was happening and who killed Tales. That morning, the king received news from a guard: “My work here is done and you’re safe.” The confused king asked the guard who gave him the news. The guard did not know.
