King Botolph Remanis is a former king of Varrock. He is known to have held the throne during the years 17 through 19 of the Fifth Age, although the exact length of his rule is unknown. It is likely that he is the current King Roald III's great-grandfather.
In the year 17, King Botolph ordered a sewage system to be built beneath Varrock Palace. The blueprints were soon made, but by the end of the project, these had been given a complete overhaul roughly five times. In fact, by the end of the project, the sewers had been built beneath the entire length of the city. These are the famous Varrock Sewers that still exist today.
In order to build the sewer system, King Botolph commissioned many miners, masons, and architects, most of which were human (although it is possible the dwarves may have played a role in their design). Although sources are few and many unreliable, is believed that amongst the miners was the famous hero Wally, who slew the demon Delrith in the year 19.
King Botolph was paranoid about the possibility of assassins, so he commissioned a tower built into the palace, with only one entrance and a winding stairs, so he could live with little chance of being assassinated.
King Botolph is possibly a reference to Saint Botolph, whose church is in Boston, England. It is properly called 'St. Botolph's Church' but is more commonly called 'The Stump'.
