To do and say as they will is what Antigone says is the power of kings in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.).

Specifically, Theban Princess Antigone finds her uncle King Creon delusional. Creon gives her the death sentence for breaking his edict of non-burial of the disloyal Theban dead. He insists that all Thebes is on his side in terms of issuing and enforcing his edict. Antigone knows that Thebans believe as she does and that fear keeps them from following her defiant lead.

How does Antigone use her power in 'Antigone'?

It is to bury her brother that Antigone uses her power in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.).Specifically, Theban Princess Antigone has royal powers as the daughter, the direct descendant, and the niece of Theban kings.

Kings govern as the representatives of the gods on earth. But their rule has to harmonize with and validate divine will.
