The poor vindictive pauper decided to disguise himself as a prince to court the wealthy women of the royal council and swindle them for their money. As fate would have it, during one of his clandestine engagements, he fell in love with one of the women in particular, Princess Catherine.
Since he got himself into this predicament,
and despite his disillusions of grandeur,
he knew that one day he would have to tell her the truth.
