Would you believe it? He promised his dying father that he would marry somebody else, and he’s gone and done just that! His father controlled him right to the very end.
I will not have our bond severed. My father is going to help me find eleven girls in the kingdom who look exactly like me. We’ll dress in huntsmen’s clothes, and ride to the castle of the prince. We’ll hunt with him and see what happens. See if we can turn his head!
The Princess Who Dresses as a Man in The Twelve Huntsmen, Grimms. Painting by Alfred Agache French.
