The only hope against power struggles would be strong institutions and development of rule of law.On a political level, Herakleios is one of those weak absolute rulers, which can be problematic, because then the issue is who, if anyone, rules through them. The royal favorite could be a Richelieu or it could be a Buckingham. At the moment Athena is the effective ruler, but since Herakleios is of age, legally she has no basis for power. It’s based on inertia and Herakleios not being personally able/willing to push her out. But that’s not a stable situation.
