King Maximilian of Valdastien, handsome, clever but with a well-deserved reputation as a ladies' man, is under pressure from his prime minister to leave behind his bachelor ways, get married, and produce an heir as soon as possible. Despite the fact that he vowed never to marry, with political unrest in Europe and encroaching danger from the Prussians, the king reluctantly decides to visit the surrounding countries to seek a suitable queen. Meanwhile, beautiful but tempestuous Princess Zita flies across the alpine countryside of neighbouring Aldross on her dazzling horse Pegasus. Full of a fire that matches the stunning flame red of her hair and sparkling with intelligence, Zita could not be more different to her elder sister, the placid and homely Princess Sophie. So when a visit by King Maximilian is heralded, their shrewd mother wastes no time in ordering Princess Zita to stay out of sight so she will not catch the King’s eye and ruin any matrimonial chances for her sister.
