The young boy feel in love with the king's daughter and the king did not like this. He put the young boy in the arena. He had to make an unthinkable choice. Either get killed by a lion or marry someone that he does not love. " The youth was immediately cast into prison, and a day was appointed for his trial in the king's arena."
The princess knows what is behind each door but she did not like the lady that was behind it so she was thinking about letting the young man die.
Which one well the young man pick. If he picks the door with the lion he will be dead and if he picks the door with the lady he will be forever unhappy " Which came out of the open door- the lady, or the tiger?"
