English term or phrase:to be in a high state of grease
...they found the king in a fairly high state of grease and good humour
Explanation: I tried to find the term "to be in a state of grease" but couldn't find any references. So my guess is that maybe "grace" is meant which would fit into the rest of the sentence just wonderfully ;)
