Does anyone know what Redival mean when she said to the Fox: "Everyone knows that you are the real King of Glome"?

What Redival means is that Trom, the King of Glome, is so dependent on the Fox's advice and counsel that the Fox, in effect, is the actual ruler.  It is the Fox's bargaining skill that gains Glome money in foreign trade.  It is the Fox's advice that informs Trom's success in alliances and treaties.
