But it didn’t satisfy him - he wanted more so he decided to became a king...

He wanted to poision the king and the queen, and then become a king himself. He succeeded in poisoning his quests and now he could become the king.
Of course he was very cruel and evil. He treated his subjects very badly so they were fed up with his behavior ond they couldn’t stand it any more. They decided to kill him. He got so frightened that he ran away from them and hid in a big tower…
The tower was full of grains which he got from the farmers. He didn’t know that the tower was full of mice, because they were attracted by the grains.
There were so many of them that they attacked Popiel. They killed and ate him. That was the end of a cruel man.
