How were people ok with being ruled be a literal retard?

It blows my mind that people were ok with being ruled by a complete retard. What did other noble men/ General population think of being ruled by a guy who likely couldn't tie his own shoelaces ? How could such a situation occur ? General thread about incompetent/ mentally handicapped rulers and the situations that allowed this to be.

In modern times, elections.

Most people are retards so they're okay with being ruled by another retard. It's a ruler they can identify with.

I would argue the average pleb will choose the likable idiot of the competent curmudgeon 9 times out of 10. Of course, Chucky Deuce over here was retarded *and* unlikeable so I dunno what was going on with that.

Because the man was a unbelievable Chad. A bloodline like no other. He saved time on family trees and genealogy by combining ancestors. With one hand he could start a civil war finally collapsing the Habsburg dynasty and killing the Spanish empire, with the other he would be masturbating in his garden. The man was a mountain.

It's a very sad history user. Full of love, heartbreaks, the simplicity of a man than is also the king of one of the most powerful empires of his time, the knowing of his limitations and the anguish to know he isn't the man to do the job. I'm not good enough in English to do the man justice.

Un Jueves Santo, cuando el rey ya tenía 16 años, visitando los Monumentos acompañado de su séquito, al salir de una de las iglesias y sin que nadie se percatase, dio a un pobre que mendigaba en la puerta la cruz de brillantes que llevaba al cuello. Cuando los caballeros que le acompañaban se dieron cuenta de que no llevaba la cruz, comenzaron a gritar que habían robado a Su Majestad. El mendigo, que seguía al real cortejo, entregó la joya inmediatamente asegurando que el rey se la había dado, lo cual fue confirmado por el monarca y, aunque la cruz fue devuelta al rey por pertenecer a las joyas de la Corona, para que se cumpliese el deseo de Carlos II fue tasada la joya y el valor de la misma, que se elevó a 12.000 escudos, le fue entregado al mendigo.

His condition was probably kept secret from the public.

Either way he wasn't completely retarded. Sure incest fucked him up good but he was self-aware of his condition and for some time actually tried his best at doing his job,. At some point he basically gave up and played games for the rest of his life.

Took of his jewel cross when coming out from church, and gave it to a beggar. Guards realized that he had no cross, and accused the beggar of theft, but the king told the truth. The cross had to be returned because it was part of the crown jewels, but the king commanded that the beggar receive its value I'm coin

I think it's weird that Veeky Forums has this weird spiteful confidence surrounding Charles, as if you're all getting off on denying that he was retarded. He definitely was, he was absolutely useless. Any good decision came from an advisor, there's not a single record of him making his own competent decisions. He didn't "try his best" like this schmuck says before giving up and playing games, he was severely retarded and just kind of wandered from one activity to the next. By the way, he smelled like shit because he didn't have the sense or capability to even bathe himself, so I hardly see how he somehow had this secret administrative ability that you know about but nobody else.

Kings didn't bathe themselves, that was the job of servants. Plus, Europe at the time had this weird phobia of baths because of the Black Death.
