Why was the king hanged???
What evidence is there in the poem to suggest that the ministers were unaware about the fact that the king had been hanged????

Dear Student,
Please find below the solution to the asked query:

There was no one who could be hanged as one after the other they were pardoned. The crowd had gathered to witness the hanging and they were becoming restless. The king noticed their mood and was worried. As the loop was a little high, all the people were measured one by one to see who would reach the noose. The king was found to be of the exact size and so he was hanged in the end.  

The ministers were so engrossed in the search of person whose height matched with that of the noose, that they did not realise that the person was the king himself. After hanging him they shouted "Long live the King!"
