Discovering that Princess Udele, although she is eighteen, is kept away from state matters and still treated like a child, Zoleka decides to teach Udele the skills necessary to be a Princess so she can gain the respect of the people and help Krnov become strong again. But has Princess Zoleka arrived too late to stir the Royal Place into action and stop the ever increasing danger from the Prussian Army?
