Did you read Nasu's postface in the first novel? It's about the three Kings' conflict and how affects Saber. And is about Kiritsugu. It's not just Kiritsugu's story.

It's also about Saber's and how she relates to her reign. She's not just promoted in all the covers because of her popularity (and the lack of his). The opening makes reference to Kiritsugu because he's the one that shows up in the first prologue.

I don't think this is a spoiler considering the whole thing with the kings began as soon as episode 5 of the first season.
