Princess Phoebe gasped when she first caught sight of the fortress city of Jerusalem, the enormous palace so different from her father's Nordic hall. "What do you think of your new home, Princess?" asked the king's envoy, a middle-aged man who rode alongside her litter.

"You pass the armory and further to the right is the Hall of Justice. Many people gather to hear the king's famous wisdom."
"It will be an honor to be queen to such an esteemed king. I intend to make him proud," she answered with the dignity her father had impressed upon her. She noticed the envoy give her a glance. Was that pity in his eyes?
