Visual Description:  A highly rated ruler rising up the ranks.

MUSIN  =  MINUS,  REVVE  =  VERVE,  URIADS  =  RADIUS,  TALPEA  =  PALATE —   Giving us:  MUERDUSPAE

Clue/Question:  The prince became the ruler because he . . .

Answer:  MEASURED UP

(I’d say this one has a fairly high difficulty rating.  It took me a couple of minutes to get “radius”.  The other clue words were OK too.  Good scrambling of the answer letters.  The answer makes for a nice (non-risqué) double entendré.  They do give us a few visual clues in the cartoon.  The balcony railing and the upper background do resemble the marks on a ruler.  I’ll bet a good number of you had at least some difficulty getting today’s answer.  Although, that is always hard for me to gauge.  Great start to the week!  Do good, people.)   — YUR
