Story Summary

The princess' jilted suitors think they are playing a joke on the princess when they tell the king that the princess wants to marry the court clown. To their surprise, she does and their children are half kings and queens and half tumbled-down clowns who can lead everyone through the twisted ways of the world with laughter.
