Hide-and-Seek King

I put up a sign proclaiming that if any man can find my daughter within eight days, he will have her for his wife. If he fails, I will have his head.

Needless to say, I have quite a collection of heads. No one will ever find my daughter. I’ve hidden her in my palace, underneath the floorboards, behind seven locked doors, with eleven of her friends who look exactly alike.
