AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A king's daughter is deceived by her helper into thinking her father has banished her. The daughter and her helper leave the kingdom, and swap clothing to better disguise themselves. Despite the 'disguise,' the daughter eventually reveals herself as the king's daughter by showing some unusual abilities, and the misunderstanding is cleared up.
