The Real Princess

The Real Princess is an illustration for Edmund Dulac's Picture Book for the French Red Cross. It was published for the Daily Telegraph newspaper by Hodder and Stoughton to raise funds for the French Red Cross (Croix Rouge Française) by the Comité de Londres (Committee in London) under the patronage of H.M. Queen Alexandra, consort of Britain's King Edward VII.

Queen Alexandra was born Princess Alexandra Caroline Mary Charlotte Louisa Julia on December 1, 1844. She was the granddaughter of the king of Denmark. At 16, she won the hand of the Prince Albert Edward, heir to the throne of England. She became Queen Consort in 1901 upon the death of her mother-in-law, Queen Victoria. During her time as Great Britain's Queen, she established The Red Cross.

Bluebeard is a man shunned because of his ugly, blue beard. Although he's been married several times, no one knows what became of his wives. He must leave the country for business reasons, but before leaving he gives all the keys of the chateau to his new wife, telling her to use the keys freely and enjoy herself while he is away. He also gives her the key to one small room beneath the castle, stressing to her that she must not enter this room under any circumstances. He then goes away and leaves the house in her hands. Overcome with the desire to see what the forbidden room holds, the wife immediately discovers the room's horrible secret: the murdered bodies of her husband's former wives hang from hooks on the walls.
