Story Summary

A goodhearted but ignorant king listens to his counselors' advice and banishes from the kingdom anyone who is different. However, not wishing to be cruel, he offers reprieve if anyone can answer three riddles. It is Clever Leonora that both shows the King his folly and gains a husband in the bargain.
