Swordfights, midnight rides, castles and dungeons. The Prisoner of Zenda is the classic romantic adventure! When Rudolf Rassendyll decides to take a journey to see his distant cousin crowned king of Ruritania, it soon becomes apparent that it is not going to be a normal trip. The first indicati on of this comes with the realisati on that he bears an uncanny resemblance to his cousin. Added to that there is the discovery that Black Michael, a relative of the rightful king, is determined to prevent the coronation taking place, so that he might receive the crown himself.What follows is an adventure involving abduction, imprisonment and deceit. As the story races to its conclusion, Rudolf Rassendyll faces choices that will determine not only his future, but the futures of King Rudolf, Princess Flavia and the whole of Ruritania. Published in 1894, The Prisoner of Zenda launched Hope's writing career, and was followed by the sequel, Rupert of Hentzau.

Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins was born February 9th 1863 in London, England. As the youngest child of Reverend Edwards Hawkins, Anthony would attend the school at which his father was headmaster -- St John's Foundation School for the Sons of Poor Clergy. Anthony then went on to study at Marlborough College, and showed his interest in literature by becoming the editor of its newspaper The Malburian. Whilst attending Balliol College, Anthony developed an interest in law and also began to write fiction. By 1890, Anthony began to publish a series of novels which began that same year with the satire A Man of Mark, followed in 1891 by Father Stafford. However, Anthony's greatest success would come in 1894 with the publication of The Prisoner of Zenda -- a romantic adventure set in the mythical kingdom of Ruritania. The novel was so admired that Anthony published a sequel titled Rupert of Hentzau four years later. Anthony's later work was not to be as lauded as his masterpiece The Prisoner of Zenda, but he would be financially successful due to film rights sales and reprints of his work. During World War I he decided to work for the Ministry of Information to counteract German propaganda, Anthony would spend a great deal of time writing pamphlets aimed at discouraging the German war effort.
