Narmes then proceed to explain that when the previous king died, he had two sons, the first one Armankan with a secondary woman, and the youngest one Sharrkan that he got with the queen Patra Amun-Ra, the first wife. Since Sharkkan was the child with Patra, he was the one supposed to succeed the king but Sharkkan was too young and Armankan became the king, but Patra and Gafra are not happy with the situation and want to put Sharkkan on the throne, thus they started making up a curse to push people believing that it was because the current King policy that the people started dying.
