What relationship did he have with his people?

During research it wasn't specific, but when he flaunted his power and always had people with him, I assume he had a good relationship with the people. Also because nobody ever tried to overthrow him, or ever try to declare war on him. Frederick IV more declared war on others. He also used his power better than his father.

He died from Edema/ Dropsy.

Edema/Dropsy is when fluid builds under the skin and causes severe pain. Its a mutation of homeostasis.

Frederick IV used his power correctly, and was strict to himself, so nobody ever questioned him. He used his power better than his father.
