|Examine text||Varrock's resident monarch. He looks strangely evil!|
King Roald Remanis III, more commonly known simply as King Roald, is the current ruler of the prosperous kingdom of Misthalin. His residence is within Varrock Palace, where the Varrock Palace Secret Guard work to keep him safe. He is located in the south-east side of the Palace on the ground floor.
King Roald's examine text in Runescape Classic calls him King Roald VIII, although he is the third.
During the What Lies Below quest, King Roald is controlled by a mind control spell cast by Surok Magis, and is forced to fight against the player. He has a combat level of 47, and can only be defeated if the player summons Zaff when he is at zero Life points. Additionally, poison cannot be used against him. He is weak against magic attacks and slash-based weapons such as longswords.
The same day the quest was released, King Roald's graphics were revamped.
King Roald constantly shouts at the player during the battle. For players who have completed Garden of Tranquillity before What Lies Below, King Roald will yell at the player for growing the garden. For players who have completed Shield of Arrav before What Lies Below, King Roald will yell about the player being a member of the Phoenix Gang or the Black Arm Gang depending on which gang the player joined during the quest. For players who have completed Darkness of Hallowvale before What Lies Below, King Roald will yell that the player is with the Vampyres.
