|Occupation:||Monarch of Detina|
King Zachary the Rough and Ready was a former King of Detina. He reigned ten years before the Detinan Civil War began. During his reign, he narrowly managed to stave off a war over serfdom by accepting a compromise proposed by Daniel the Weaver, Henry Feet of Clay, and John the Typhoon.
Zachary had been dead for a number of years when the war began, but members of his family, who somehow had not inherited the throne from their ancestor, remained prominent in the Detinan aristocracy.
Literary Comment Edit
Zachary the Rough and Ready is modeled on Zachary Taylor, an antebellum President of the United States (in office March 1849 - July 1850), whose nickname during the Mexican War was "Old Rough and Ready."
