Hey, I noticed that King Leoric has the title "The mad king of Tristram" beneath his healthbar. No offense or anything, but in my opinion "of Tristram" should be removed, a king is the head of a monarchy. The village Tristram could be a monarchy, but that is rather unlikely.. its a town.
Suggestion: wouldn't it be better to simply remove the "of Tristram" under his name?

Short Version: Leoric is king of the land. He has two sons (retconned) - one ends up kidnapped (by Lazarus - his advisor) and the king leads an army into the Tristram cathedral (as that is where his son was taken) to retrieve him. Deep into the bowels they go, 1 man makes it out (it is not Leoric). So his namesake, "The Mad King of Tristram" is a result of the "madness" that drives him into the cathedral where he and all his men perish, and "of Tristram" relates to the location of his demise.
I agree. The title is awkward, however I don't think the intention of the title is to suggest that he was the King if Tristram, but The Mad King that happens to reside in Tristram at the moment. You know, to differentiate from all the other Mad Kings in Sanctuary.
Someone can be called a "king" of a location without having to be either an actual king or the king of that location.
The "king" is referring to his actually title of being a king, the "Of Tristram" is referring to the location where he went mad.
