When you start an account on travian kingdoms it’s important that you know if you want to be a king or a governor. The king is as it sounds a king of a kingdom and the kings jobb is to protect the governors.
So if you choise to be a governor you will be placed in a kingdom with another king.
They describe it as if you are a more experienced travian player or an active player you can pick to be a king or if you are new to the travian system you may choice to be governor.
In this case I took governor and it gave me 7 days of beginner protection and that makes me protected from attacks in a 7 days period or if I reach 200 population.
Great thing to notice is that if you pick to be a king you only have 2 days of protection and can therefore be attacked by other kings since they also only have 2 days of protection.
So pick the one you belive is the best for you.
