By Michael, Trade Minister of Arendelle
From the first day when she ascended to her lofty position as the new head of the Mundilfari clan to now has been a wild ride to say the least. Yet what is more amazing is the miracle resulting from what happened during the Battle of the Fjord, when Queen Anna’s love for Elsa compelled her to lay down her life again before Viola’s sword, to save Elsa from the Countess’ plans for conquering Northuldra and ending Elsa’s life.
From that, an ember of love started to smoulder, then burn bright in Vi’s heart. Queen Anna and myself, but mostly Queen Anna showed Viola what love is. Anna and myself sent letters and messages to and from Viola, yet the largest part of this effort came from Queen Anna herself.
Then, Viola brought Commander Hilde Von Altheim in, and then the Southern Isles were nearly decimated by Hilde’s raid. This put Queen Anna in a quandary about what to do with them and our allies wanting something done to both Vi and Hilde.
Queen Anna took a bold gamble and asked Countess Viola to be the new Prime Minister of Arendelle. Anna was willing to put her trust in Viola. Viola (with a little persuasion!) accepted Anna’s offer and appointment, yet was injured by the mysterious Mephisto, missing her first day on the job. Yet her indomitable spirit would never give in to this force.
The change in Viola was miraculous. Queen Anna, Snow Queen Elsa, Alan and myself visited her while she was healing up from her injuries. Vi tells me that Viola and Elsa had a wonderful conversation.
Anothing thing Vi said to me has made a lasting impression. Now that she had met her for the first time, she quipped, “It’s certainly harder to want to hurt someone when you put a face to them.”
Remember, dear reader. Viola wanted Elsa dead, the spirits hers and Northuldra conquered. When you throw a little love someone’s way, things can change.
Prime Minister Viola is here with the expertise to guide Arendelle’s and Northuldra’s political destiny through the rough fjord waters of world politics and to watch out for the sharks like Russia, France and other countries who think Arendelle is an easy target.
Viola will prove them wrong.
Officially, as Trade Minister, I welcome our new and first Prime Minister of Arendelle, the wonderful Countess Viola Mundilfari to the House of Ministers!
Personally, if the Queen sisters, my beloved nieces will allow me to say this:
Viola, Hilde, welcome to the family! We love you both.
From the desk of your Trade Minister,
