The king's sisters then gang up on the Astrologer, pressuring him into predicting that the king will die, in the hope of worrying him into an early grave. Into all this confusion come a heavily disguised princess and her father, investigating the kingdom before her marriage to the king. All sorts of unfortunate and unforeseen consequences follow!
