Pages from the Cthonique Library: The Palace of the Silver Lion

One of the great plays of the Southern Kingdom, now tragically composed largely of fragments, with the missing parts now supplied from a pastiche ('The Lady of the Palace') written centuries later by an author who had access to the whole play.  The story tells of a Princess who has a great palace built for her, wherein her word is law, and of her tragic romance with a laborer therein. 

It ends with the Princess discovering that the law is a poor protection at times...
