Foiled in his previous attempts to gain power in Ruritania, Rupert, prince of villains, seeks revenge. Every year, Queen Flavia sends a rose to Rassendyll, the man she loves and when she is indiscreet enough to send a letter, Rupert sees his chance. This is the sequel to "The Prisoner of Zenda".

Anthony Hope (in full Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins) was born in London and educated at Marlborough and at Balliol College, Oxford. He became a lawyer, and dabbled in Liberal politics, but the immediate success of The Prisoner of Zenda, his fourth work, turned him entirely to writing. This work and its sequel, Rupert of Hentzau, both describe the perilous adventures of the Englishman Rudolph Rassendyll in the mythical kingdom of Ruritania. Anthony Hope successfully published many other novels and plays. He was knighted in 1918 and died in 1933.
