It was the moment of faith for the young lover. He had seen the princess signal to the right. He trusted her and went to open the right door.
He opened the door, certain that it would be the lady, only to find the tiger waiting for him! He couldn't believe his eyes.
He sobbed at the thought of the princess, the one he had loved, leaving him to die as the tiger mauled him to death.
The king was delighted at the sight of the lover being punished, but the princess couldn't even bear to watch what was happening. The crowd seemed quite disappointed because they had liked the young man.
The princess sobbed in front of his grave, mourning, yet without regrets as she could not have standed him marrying another woman.
However, many years later, she marries another man of royal blood with the king's approval. They live happily ever after.
