>>86530970>Game of Flags states that the Johansens are Royalty. Still, there has to be quite a story about how things ended up like that.
Well my assumption was that they were barbarian royalty, aka. leaders of a clan that would technically count as being royalty if you looked at it from the Mewnie kingdom's perspective of leadership's impact on ones place in society.> it's pretty heavily implied that there wasn't any (at least non monster) civilazation there before the current society, and I don't really see where they could fit in after the founding.
What we know is that there were Mewmans present on Mewnie that were actively fighting monsters who seemed to be the more in control of the two. Given the themes expressed with the Johansens and the peasantry in the Diaz's Family Vacation, it is reasonable to assume that the way Mewmans existed and lived before the Butterfly setup a proper kingdom was somewhat more dispersed.
In addition, given the ongoing conflict with the monsters who also populate the land it makes sense for the Mewmans to group together for protection, one of the primary reasons for the development and progression of societies in this world too. It's a big assumption to be sure, but one I would consider reasonable. That would also help understand why the kingdom was successfully created, given the promise of protection to those who joined it.>I'm not really sure I'd call the existence of royalty a "caste system". Having a caste system implies quite a bit more than that.
The point is there's multiple levels of importance in the Mewman society that dictates their supposed value. I suppose you could just call it a class system, the point remains.
