King Cole is the long serving mayor of Fabletown. He has no special abilities, but is very well-liked. His view is that a king (or mayor, as it happens) should be a servant of the people more than a ruler.

HistoryEdit

HomelandsEdit

King Cole was the king of a very small kingdom. He was married and had three daughters, two of whom were married. When the Adversary advanced to his kingdom, it took them only a day to conquer it.[1]

King Cole hid from the enemy in an abandoned tin mine, where a group of his subjects had hidden as well. He decided that they should hide out there as long as possible and often skipped meals to make their supplies last. Eventually, they ran out of food, so they began raiding a nearby farm for supplies.[1]

When the Adversary left only a small occupying force behind and after hearing that his family had been killed, King Cole decided it was time to leave. They moved along, eventually hearing about the Sanctuary World. [1]

FabletownEdit

King Cole was able to successfully lead his citizens to Fabletown. He was elected almost unanimously as mayor of the town during its first election and has been re-elected every time since. Though uncomfortable with the idea, he is the one that banished all fables that can't pass as human to The Farm.[1]

SourceEdit

King Cole is the titular character in the nursery rhyme Old King Cole. The poem is as follows:

"Old King Cole was a merry old soul 
And a merry old soul was he;
He called for his bowl and he called for his pipe;
And he called for his fiddlers three.
Every fiddler, he had a fiddle
And a very fine fiddle had he;
Oh, there's none so rare, as can compare
With King Cole and his fiddlers three."
