Los padres del príncipe Guillermo y de una bella doncella los habían comprometido en matrimonio desde niños. Pero cuando el príncipe pensaba en esta boda, comprendía que esto no podía ser.

Con esta convicción, el príncipe Guillermo, mirándole a los ojos, le informó que esta boda nunca se llevaría a cabo.
