Smooth translation:
"All the way upriver, all the way north, a king eats herbs and it causes him to
want power. He wanted to rule the kingdom very much."
-- The Bloody King
The herb that he ate gave him knowledge, so that he could be able to wage war.
So that he found and ate that which he wanted, and then he punished himself.
