Overview
Five times made into film versions since its original publication in 1894, The Prisoner of Zenda is a perennially popular adventure and romance story.

Rassendyll must impersonate the rightful king in order to rescue him from the castle Zenda, all the while facing tests of honor with the beautiful Princess Flavia, and enduring tests of strength in his encounters with the villainous Black Michael and his handsome, debonair bodyguard, Rupert of Hentzau.
