You make it sound like he's a pretty crappy ruler. Luckily he has a Demigod inside him now to keep him focused on being the best king he can be (and not being a bloodthirsty psycho).
No, he makes it sound like Varian already had a lot on his plate at the moment. The King was fighting dangerous threats to his kingdom, and left his nobles and advisors, whom he trusted, to lead in his place. In the meantime, a black dragon was covertly stirring up trouble until it was too late and things got out of hand.
