The main character, Rudolf Rassendyll was a risc man. He find a coronation in the Ruritania where is a aerial small kingdom. The prince in the country is Rudolf's father...

I think This is adventure story. I was excited by this story. But characters and place names was very complicated. So when I started to read this book, I was very confused. Houever, when I finished to read it, I did not worry about that. ( )

Rudolf Rassendyll visits Ruritania for the coronation of the new king. The new king looks like Rudolf! This makes him do adventured that he didn't dream.
This is very interesting and exciting story. In this book, the love of women is powerful and important. I think Madam Antoinette and Princess Flavia are both beautiful and have great hearts. I like them.
My favarite scene is that Antoinette helps Rudolf because if Duke Michel who is the enemy of Rudolf and a lover of Antoinette becomes the king, he will marry Flavia. Her reason is simple.
Flavia is ,needless to say, a charming princess. She is not only purity but also powerful.
I think Rudolf and Flavia are the best couple but... Their relation is sad but beautiful. I like this story from the first sentence to the last sentence. ( )
