The Royal Update has finally arrived to BitLife and that means we will be role playing as rulers of nations! With great power comes great responsibility, so it is up to you to determine how you will wield those responsibilities when you obtain them. While this sounds great, the question still remains, how exactly do you become a royal ruler of a nation? Well, we'll teach you exactly what you need to start approving laws and handing out justice to your subjects.
How to become King or Queen
If you want to be come a king or queen in BitLife then you are going to need to be born in a country that features a monarchy. This can be places like Belgium, Denmark, Japan, Jordan, Kuwait, Malaysia, Monaco, Morocco, Netherlands, Norway, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom. You get a random chance by being born in these places to be part of the royal family. Otherwise, you can also marry into royalty by finding one of the family to date. This can be as random as someone from royalty becoming interested in you by just going to the gym! You can also try the date option under the Love tab and hope to run into someone.
While this is how you get to become a royal, it doesn't necessarily mean you will be a king or queen. You might need to wait for someone to die or abdicate the throne. You will also want to make sure that the country has a king or queen, it's possible they have some kind of lower designation.
Now that you've gained some kind of rule, you can go ahead and engage in the Royalty tab that can be found under Activities. This is similar to Fame, but has even more options to choose from! You can Abdicate your title, mingle with celebrities, execute someone, choose how you'd like to be addressed, review laws, engage in some dastardly disservice, or perform royal duties for the commoners.
The easiest way to gain Respect is to perform royal duties. These are pretty foolproof, because you are literally just doing good deeds for the people. If you want to be a strong ruler, then make sure to do this at least once a year. You can also check for a new law to support or denounce. You won't always have an option available, but deciding whether your kingdom will become all vegetarian or not is up for grabs.
How to Execute
You will need to reach the pinnacle of royalty to get the ability to execute anyone. You can't just be a prince or princess, you will need to be the king or queen of your country. You can get away with this most of the time, but you will suffer backlash from your countrymen. Make sure you have high respect before attempting it or you might end up a victim of execution yourself!
