SummaryAdd a Summary
Prince Liam. Prince Frederic. Prince Duncan. Prince Gustav. You’ve never heard of them, have you? These are the princes who saved Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White, and Rapunzel, respectively, and yet, thanks to those lousy bards who wrote the tales, you likely know them only as Prince Charming. But all of this is about to change.
Rejected by their princesses and cast out of their castles, the princes stumble upon an evil plot that could endanger each of their kingdoms. Now it’s up to them to triumph over their various shortcomings, take on trolls, bandits, dragons, witches, and other assorted terrors, and become the heroes no one ever thought they could be.
Meet Princes Liam, Frederic, Duncan, and Gustav. If their names don’t ring a bell with you, don’t be too surprised. Known better by their pseudonym “Prince Charming” the princes are a bit peeved at the lousy P.R. their adventures have garnered them. The bards have found that their stories tell well when the girls get all the credit (and actual names) and it isn’t just the princes that are out of sorts. A local witch is more than a little upset, and that anger may have something to do with the slow disappearance of the bards themselves. Now it’s up to our four heroes, brought together through the strangest of circumstances, to band together to defeat an evil witch, defeat a giant or two, outwit bandits, and generally find a way to make their faults into strengths.

On still another road, a green -haired man wobbled by on peppermint-stick stilts; a fiery plumed bird of paradise perched on his shoulder. But he's not in this story, so don't pay any attention to him.
"The troll threw up its arms in frustration.'Why humans never remember trolls is herbivore!' it cried. The monster lowered its shaggy, one-horned head and howled angrily into the princes' faces. 'Troll is vegetarian! Last time Troll looked, Round-Head Man made of meat! Oh, Troll is so tired of close-minded humans!'"

Prince Liam. Prince Frederick. Prince Duncan. Prince Gustav. You've never heard of them, have you? And you know why? Revisionist history. These are the princes who saved Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White, and Rapunzel, respectively, and yet they were completely glossed over in the versions of their tales that became popular. Thus, you likely know them only as "Prince Charming."
