A ruling prince who stole his title and is nuttier than a fruitcake
A plethora of princesses
A giant helmet falling from the sky
Other pieces of giant armor popping up all over the place.
A mysterious peasanty appearing young man
A count whose estates were wiped out by pirates so he became a monk
A father sneaking around (I never did fully figure that part out) but willing to sell his daughter.
The maid, Bianca, is the only normal thing in this story.
This was a good read as long as you don't take it too seriously.
However, I don't think the author ever heard a conversation between two women.
Even back then I seriously doubt conversations were that vague and beat around the bushy.
Especially between two women.
