Story Summary

When the emperor dies, no man in the kingdom is brave enough to be tested by the great dragon. It is only the emperor's daughter Si-Ling who has the courage to face the dragon and test her skill against his riddles. Solving the three riddles she ascends the throne with the dragon's best wishes and rules with courage, heart and wisdom the rest of her days.
