The Short Shall Inherit...?

My nieces were playing during one of their breaks this morning and I noticed that the younger sister ('Stina Beana) was playing the role of the older sister's servant.
"Why did you make 'Stina Beana the servant?"

Older Sister: "Because she's shorter than me."

"Mm hm. And short people are servants?"

Older Sister: "No... okay, we'll play something else."
A few minutes later I returned and 'Stina Beana was the king while Older Sister was the queen.
"Why is 'Stina Beana the king and you get to be the queen?"

Older Sister: "Because her hair is shorter."
