My father's kingdom

was a peaceful one.

It was a land

of prosperity, gentility,

and an appreciation of freedom

which my father valued

above all else.

Had it not been such,

I would not be who I am.

Instead of riding across open fields

and hunting with my father,

I would be sitting with my mother,

hands folded,

knitting stockings and such.

And entertaining boring young men

who would fulfill

my mother's dreams for me

to be the perfect princess

in dresses and jewels,

married of by the age of 18.

But my father didn't see

the world that way.

As his only heir,

I was able to enjoy

all the adventure life had to offer

as if I had been born a prince

instead of a princess.

So my mother

lovingly frowned on us both,

and hoped one day I would meet

my match and come to my senses.

Are you enjoying yourself, Augustin?

Ah, my lovely daughter.

Just in time for lunch.

How was your morning ride?

Wonderful. She's the best horse

I've ever ridden.

Mm, good. Just stay out

of the Isma Woods.

The tree people won't care

if you are a princess.

They'll rob and kill you either way.

I know, Father.

On, I'm starving.

Please, use your fork, Luisa.

What would I do without you, Mother?

Luisa, have you been in touch

with the Duke of Tagendor?

His mother said

he's quite interested in you.

We exchanged a few letters,

but he's such a bore.

Everyone bores you.

Father doesn't.

Flattery will get you everywhere.

Luisa, you have to start thinking

about marriage.

It's not right for a young woman

your age not to be married.

Look at the way you dress

and carry yourself

like one of your father's

stable hands.

That's no way

for a princess to behave.

I'm not concerned

with marriage, Mother.

There are far more important

and interesting things

to put my efforts into.

Like what?

- Riding.

- Fencing.


All right, enough.

Is marriage such a bad thing?

Not always.

What was that?

My King, Queen Remini,

are you all right?

Yes, we're fine, Paxian.

Send some men to the village

to tend to the injured.

I'd like to go, too.

I'm sure they can handle it.

I'm sure they can,

but I'd like to see for myself.

I think it's good for Luisa

to be with her people.

Oh, oh! Ohh.


Get inside. Inside now.

Here, come with me.

Hold on.

This way, this way!

Here, under here.

Luisa's down there.

Send some men to find her.

As you wish.

Cover your eyes.

Don't look.

We weren't prepared for this.

Let's go. Come on.

Your Highness,

you should go back inside.

Men, get ready!

Do not fire

until he's almost upon us!


Get ready.

Aim for the head.


Luisa, are you all right?

Find her parents.

Thank God you're safe.

Where did the dragon come from?

Paxian, we haven't had

a dragon attack in over 20 years.

I don't know.

Find out. I don't think it'll give up

so easily next time.

That day was only the beginning.

The fire dragon returned to Carpia

every few weeks.

Sometimes to feed,

sometimes it seemed

just to inflict destruction.

There was nothing

my father could do.

Within three months, our kingdom

was almost destroyed.

For the children.

Come back here! It's mine!

People are turning on each other.

They're starving to death.

May I suggest there may be

other things more appropriate

for a princess

to concern herself with?

Really? And what do you consider more

appropriate than my kingdom?

- Luisa, that's enough.

- But, Father, he's not...

Come, let them speak alone.

- But, Mother.

- Luisa, please.

You can't act that way

in front of your father.

I don't like Paxian.

He treats me with no respect.
