Eliana lived a happy life with her father after her mother and 6 brothers had died. He father was the King of Israel and one day her ordered to talk to her about preparing for becoming queen.
The king told his daughter that she had 20 days to find a husband before she was made queen. Eliana was not happy by this as she did not want to get married at the age of 19 and she believed a women could rule without a man
Eliana went to her room and told her maid what her father was making her do. The maid agreed with Eliana and wanted to help her so she went to the King's room later that evening to talk to him about Eliana's hand in marriage.
The maid tried convincing the king but he told her that he wasn't changing a thing and sent her off, she went back to the princess's room and told her she had to obey her father. Letters were sent to all the princes and they met there the next evening where Eliana would chose
Eliana cannot look after herself, she needs guidance and support, she is too weak people will mock her and not listen to her without a man, she will be married in twenty days and that is final!
Eliana let out her thoughts and was sent to her room by her father, she didn't come out for 2 days, in the evening the maid tried to cheer her up but it wasn't working, so she thought some fresh blueberries from the village would cheer her up
In the village the maid saw people crowed around a man selling newspapers which read "PRINCESS GONE WILD!" People were laughing and gossiping about the princess and she couldn't stand it, Two men were talking about how silly Eliana was thinking she could rule a country by herself, so the maid stood up in front of the people and asked them to sign a petition to get rid of the law
