  • One day the king found out about this love story and was not happy about it.  The youth was put in prison until his appointed day where justice would be served.  He finally was in the public arena, but the challenge was choosing the correct door, and trusting the princess who was pointing him towards the right door.

  • The young man opens the door to the right thinking that this door is going to have a fair maiden, but because the princess is so jealous of the maiden she points him towards the door with the tiger behind it.
