About: In this story of romance and political machinations in a German principality, a young prince is puzzled by his wife's decision to leave him. Here, he queries his father-in-law, a grand duke, who laughs about his daughter's headstrong behavior. Elizabeth Shippen Green captured the opposite moods of the two men, as well the royal surroundings, complete with a massive door, fine wine, and cigars.
