Yeah, the reader is dumb. The Corrino were, presumably, just rulers of the Imperium as no known issues other than Arrakis were known, but they would backstab and use treacherous tactics in order to maintain their seat in power but without cortino openly involved, such as when they supplied Sardaukar to the Harkonnen to deal with the Atreides.
