ago in Beijing, a special law was passed. Any man who wanted to marry the

beautiful princess Turandot would first have to answer three riddles.1 If this person failed, he would be executed.u This is exactly the fate2 that awaited3 the prince of Persia.h He had failed to answer these riddles, and his head was to be cut off when the moon rose 05

that night. A crowd gathered in front of the palace to witness4 the execution. Suddenly, an elderly5 man named Timur was pushed to the ground. “Help!” cried Liu, the old man’s slave girl. The young prince of Tartaryh rushed over to help them. He was shocked to discover that Timur was actually his father, the deposedu king of Tartary. Just then, the prince of Persia appeared. As the crowd watched him walk to his death,

people called out for mercy. Their pleasu fell on deaf ears, however. With a wave of her hand, Turandot ordered the execution to continue. This didn’t seem to bother the prince of Tartary. He had already fallen in love with Turandot. “I will marry her,” he said to himself. * 中文翻譯請參閱第 68 頁
