When an English gentleman takes a holiday in Ruritania, a country in central Europe,

Rudolph’s coronation is thwarted, our hero becomes involved in what turns out to be a
very dangerous adventure! Can he rescue the real king in time to prevent civil war?
This re-telling of Anthony Hope’s best-loved novel is aimed at readers aged 14+ and is
