This kingdom was ruled by a barbaric king. He thought chance could decide if someone who committed a crime was guilty or not. He would have the person in question open one of two doors, one of which contained a hungry tiger and the other a beautiful lady.
What is this!
One day the barbaric king found his daughter to be having an affair with a common man, though she should be with a man of status. The king immediatly had the man thrown into prison to await his trial.
The princess snuck to see what lay behind each door. After learning who the lady was she remembers seeing her and the man together before, she didn't want him with her. She had to decide if she was going to tell him to go for the lady or the tiger.
When the man stepped out to choose his unknown fate, all he could look at was the princess. She had decided which door she was going to tell him to chose. She made a motion with her right hand, which only the man saw.
The man trusted her, he approached the door to his right and opened it.
