Nicholas & George : They were the closest of siblings. George was a notorious prankster and loved to tell jokes. When they were children, whenever George said something funny, Nicholas would write it down on a slip of paper and save it in a little box. When he was Emperor, after his brother's death, he would sometimes take out the little box and could be heard roaring with laughter at his brother’s old jokes. Losing a brother is incredibly difficult, especially if he is your best friend.
