EXCLUSIVE

Hear ye, hear ye ... a King who once resided over Medieval Times in California claimeth he's been screwed out of his royal sum -- and now he wants what's coming to him.

King Scott Ehredt -- ruler from 2008 A.D. -  2013 A.D. (at the chain's popular Buena Park location) -- allegeth he was paid a less than royal amount to film a "Medieval Times" ad campaign in '11 ... even though his court was paid much more.

Your majesty sayeth non-employee actors on the shoot told him they were paid "thousands" for the campaign -- however he merely received $18 an hour ... peasants pay!

A rep for Medieval Times telleth TMZ they deny the allegations.

King Scott of Buena Park bids the judge for restitution to be determined at a later date ... as well as compensation for damages incurred.

... or they could just battle to the death in the Medieval Times arena.

Nobody gets rich being an employee at a restaurant, even at the ones that pull in millions every year. I know someone who cooked for everyone from Hollywood stars to heads of state. His salary? 12$/hour.

WTF? It's a focking restaurant. I'm not real sure I'd care to be eating dinner and watching watching horses piss or shlt.

He knew the wage and agreed to do the job, and now he is suing? Moron. Hope he goes under from court fees.

Sometimes TMZ forgets that most of their audience doesn't live anywhere near LA so these local stories mean absolutely nothing.

It's "presided" over, not resided over. Unless he lived upstairs. LOL
