But most English Catholics did support the English Monarchy (with some help from Governmental big stick). What I'm trying to get across is that to be an Exile, one have to have a bigger grudge against the King of Tarsh other than he's a Lunar (Prod). Most Tarshites are not Lunars yet support the King quite happily.

Mere Tarsh Nationalism alone IMO is not a sufficient reason to despise the King as Tarsh Uber Alles happens to be a apt summary of Tarshite actions ever since it became Lunar (cf Phargentes abuse of his position as Provincial Overseer in favour of Tarsh Glorantha: Intro p131). Furthermore the Good Empire mentioned in KoS is IMO the Kingdom of Tarsh under another name.

Like no non-Lunar may become King of Tarsh...
