Rules of  the Evil  Overlord #143.  "If  one of my  daughters actually
manages to win the hero and  openly defies me, I will congratulate her
on her  choice, declare a  national holiday to celebrate  the wedding,
and proclaim the  hero my heir. This will probably  be enough to break
up the relationship.  If not, at  least I am assured that no hero will
attack my  Legions of  Terror when  they are holding  a parade  in his
honor." <>
