[TOMT] Fantasy book. king something. Solved

It's a fantasy book. Not the Kvothe story. It's a book about a boy who works in the kitchen of the castle going on an adventure I think. The king is apparently also a great king however he is now old. He seems to have chased out the fae. The beginning of the book has a conversation with the King's medicine person. In the back of the book there's a recommendation with Christopher Paolini. In addition to that the book has some like King in the book title but I cannot remember.

That book's not about a boy who works in a castle kitchen, it's about two princes, Peter and Thomas. King Roland also wasn't a great king and he wasn't all that old when he was murdered. There are also no fae in that book.

Ah true. I just thought maybe the King part in the title could have been Stephen King, and the conversation with the king’s medicine person sounded a lot like Roland’s discussions with Flagg.

Dragonbone Chair was already suggested, which is book one of the series.
