Takes place where royalty and kingdoms still existed and strived
The king's daughter and a servant have been talking and been considering marriage
The king find's out about this love quarrel and demands that the servant must prove his innocence's.
The servant must make a decision on which door to open with one having a lion and one having a woman he must marry
I believe the princess decided it would be better for him to die as if she couldn't have him why should anyone else be allowed to have him.
I believe the theme was if I couldn't have it why should anyone else be allowed to have it, as the princess was constantly debating what she should tell her lover to choose and she seemed like she couldn't bring herself to make him choose the other woman.
