Daniel Allen DuBourabout this book: This is a story of a Prince; a modern day fairytale about a prince abducted as an infant; a man of royal blood who lives his life into adulthood among ordinary people in an ordinary lifestyle. As an adult he is confronted by his adopted father who gives him the details of his adoption. An interesting story of mystery and hardship overcome in the life of a prince who would be king.
As most fairytales begin; Once upon a time there was a beautiful queen, Rosalba, who gave birth to a precious baby boy Charles Abdul III. He was her first born child. The king, Charles Abdul II proclaimed the day of his birth a holiday throughout the kingdom. Parties sprang up everywhere with singing and dancing in the streets. It was a joyful day throughout the kingdom.
The brother of the king, Richard Abdul, however was not so joyful. He was next in line to be king if something should happen to his king brother. In pretence of the joyous occasion, his mind was spinning in a diabolical way. He needed to rid the obstacle in his way of being king someday.
The king and queen cherished their beautiful prince child and were very protective of him. Although the news of his birth was spread across the kingdom, the baby was not shown to anyone except a very few. One person who was allowed to see the baby was the king's brother, Richard Abdul, along with the maid nurse, Sara, who cared for the baby. The baby was kept in the nursery and attended to by his queen mother and the nurse maid.
The kings brother, Richard visited the nursery and expressed to the queen how much he loved this little child and how proud to be an uncle. He was so convincing that the queen allowed him to hold the baby. With a false smile and joyful look, his mind was spinning as how to get rid of this obstacle to his future. He also gains the confidence of the nurse maid who cared for the baby.
When the queen joined her husband in the festivities, Richard, the king's brother would go to the nursery and hold the baby prince. The nurse maid Sara was a little suspicious that he would come alone to check on the baby. As he held the baby and talked sweetly with loving words, the suspicions slowly diminished.
One evening when the king and queen were attending a celebration of the child's birth, Prince Richard excused himself three times that evening to check on the baby prince. Each time he would hold the child and talk to him in a loving way. The nursemaid by this time had complete confidence in allowing him in the nursery. And so, Sara left him alone with the baby. Upon her return, she saw that the baby was not in its crib and Prince Richard was not there either. She was given strict orders from the queen that the baby was not to be taken out of the nursery. She didn't know what to do. If she told the queen she had left the baby alone with Prince Richard, she would certainly be flogged and possibly put in prison.
During this time, Prince Richard took the baby hidden under his cape outside the castle's grounds. He handed the baby over to a fellow conspirator. The conspirator then took the prince baby to a woman waiting to take the baby far away from the castle. A very diabolical plan was now completed and Prince Richard was now relieved.
