You're underestimating the Kings power in endgame. Once most of the pieces are off the board the king becomes very powerful.

King is generally sitting around getting fat, drinking ale and impregnating servant girls, while the Queen is busy plotting in the background on how to off the King and all of his associates

If you watch high level chess, the king is one of the most powerful end game pieces. It can be used to trap the enemy king into a corner.

Making the enemy king useless. If it was some other piece it would have no problem getting out. Accept it, kings are weak af.
