Nothing is known about the Kingdom before the apocalypse, except that it was some form of school, with part of it (the garden) being built for common recreation and study, according to Ezekiel.
At some point Ezekiel and his men took over the school.
Its survivors are often seen wearing armor and riding horses. They have an affinity for melee weapons such as spears, but guards also use firearms. They also have gardens and other agricultural areas and have grown enough to maintain the community. They have at least some electricity. Festive events such as movie nights take place. They have many fields, houses and a theater.
Deal with the Saviors
At some point Morgan and Carol got found by a few guards and taken to the Kingdom, where they first meet King Ezekiel. Upon meeting them, Carol acts weak. After that Morgan leaves with Ezekiel, Richard and others to feed pigs with zombies, offering them to the saviors.
When they return, Morgan agrees to teach Benjamin Aikido.
During an attempt to leave the Kingdom, Carol got caught by Ezekiel and Jerry. Carol and Ezekiel then have a discussion about him seeing through Carol's facade and how he met Shiva. He then agrees on Carol leaving.
Government and Society
The Kingdom has a bizarre monarchical government. It is headed by its first self declared 'King', King Ezekiel personally. Under him are his knights who work as soldiers, scouts and scavengers. Notably among them is Jerry who also works as his personal bodyguard and steward. Richard also seems to stand as one of the high ranking members of the guard and may be Ezekiel's second in command with military matters. Ezekiel is a benevolent, yet flamboyant and charismatic ruler who is well loved by his "subjects". He used his experiences of playing kings in theatre to portray himself in such a manner.
Citizens of the Kingdom live in an almost angelic environment. There is a school system, a choir and a market place. Society seems to be the most like former world governments compared to other communities with the exception of its governing body.
