    What exactly is a "Wanderlust King"?

    It's a reference to a song by the band, "Gogol Bordello," a quite obscure reference that I didn't really intend for anyone to understand.

    The band itself, however, claims to be comprised entirely of Roma Gypsies. So, the reference wasn't completely unwarranted.

    Wanderlust is an 'urge to travel'.

    Jake I saw the movie "Everything is Illuminated", and the guy from Gogol Bordello played the lead, yes?

    Martie thanks for your answer!

    Why he is a King who cannot keep his mind from the thoughts of travel although his courage may not support his desires to go the distance.  A wanderlust King might be prone to finance the voyages of those like Magellan or Chrisopher Columbus in the hope that their discovery would quench his desire to travel without dealing with the risks associated.  While the true definition of "wanderlust" relates to a desire to travel, I think it is fair to say that it is descriptive of someone who is distracted by their own thoughts and imaginations such that they cannot maintain focus.  In that sense, a wanderlust king might be one who just cannot get his arms around ruling his kingdom for all that he sees which pulls him in other directions.
