The semi-barbaric King comes up with the idea to open an arena involving manly and beastly valor, in which the minds of his subjects were refined and cultured.
The King learns and disapproves of his daughter's love affair with a young man in the kingdom.
The King schedules and attends the trial of the princess' trial in the arena, where although fate is decided by theyoung man himself, the King vows to get rid of the boy one way or another.
After doing some digging to find out which option was behind which door, the princess directs her lover to choose to open the door on the right, in which he complies.
Though the story never did say whether the princess chose to unleash the lady or the tiger on her lover, it is my own opinion that she would rather see her boyfriend die than marry another.
The central idea of this story is focused around decision making and its importance. This goes along with how, even though they may not know how it will impact them, the making of a choice can have great rewards or deadly consequences.
