SYNOPSIS: The best swordsman in all of Glyndufn (Princess Aurora) happens to wear a dress and the second bravest knight in the land (Prince Durum) falls head over sword in love with her. As you might have guessed, this is not your normal, everyday, run-of-the-mill sort of kingdom. For the most part, the kingdom of Glyndufn is under female-rule and Princess Aurora’s refusal to act like a proper 15th century lady has King Stefan and Queen Victoria a tad worried. How will they ever find a prince for their tomboy princess? But as faith would have it, Prince Durum finds Princess Aurora’s feistiness absolutely adorable. Problems arise, however, namely the wicked Wizard from Brier Oak and his apprentice, Little Wiz, who were ordered by Prince Durum’s evil uncle to botch Prince Durum’s efforts to build an army and recapture the kingdom of Brier Oak. Thus, the Wizard casts a mighty spell that puts all of the knights of Glyndufn and Princess Aurora sound to sleep. For 100 days the Wisemen try to break the spell but fail. Disheartened, Prince Durum decides he must return to his kingdom alone and fight his uncle’s army even though he will surely lose. Before he leaves he gives his love one last departing kiss and by all its merry she awakens and so do the knights! Married at once, ‘midst applause and laughter, Prince Durum rides with his wife at his side! (There’s no better honeymoon than a good battle!)
