Prisoner of Zenda:Question and Answer

Which character in the story do you like the most? Why?

The character I like the most is Princess Flavia, the cousin to King Rudolf the Fifth. She is very beautiful and charming. She is loved greatly by the people who want Rudolf to set a date for the wedding quickly so that she can be Queen of Ruritania. The Princess is also an observant woman. She can recognise some differences between Rudolf Rassendyll and King Rudolf almost immediately even though she is not aware that Rudolf has impersonated the King. She says to Rudolf, ‘You seem different. You look different. You’re thinner. You’ve changed somehow’. She is also very concerned for the safety of Rudolf as she knows there is conflict between Duke Michael and him. She warns him to be more careful. I admire her courage to make the stand to remain as Queen and help the King to rule the country even though the person she truly loves is Rudolf Rassendyll. Her greatness lies in these words spoken with such conviction, ‘Love is not all. You have shown me that honour must come first. My honour compels me to stay here. I cannot run away from my duty. I must serve my country and my House.’ She has placed duty before love. Yet her sorrow is deep,’Oh Rudolf! Rudolf! Why did we ever meet?’ The only comfort she has is the promise given by Rudolf, ‘My beautiful Queen, your ring will always be on my finger, My heart will always be yours.’ The silent exchange of the single stalk of red rose once a year is a constant reminder of their true love for each other, a love that demands great sacrifice.
