about


The Prisoner of Zenda is an adventure book by Anthony Hope, published in 1894. The king of the fictional country of Ruritania is drugged on the eve of his coronation and thus unable to attend the ceremony. Political forces are such that in order for the king to retain his crown his coronation must go forward. An English gentleman on holiday, who fortuitously resembles the monarch, is persuaded to act as his political decoy in an attempt to save the situation. The villainous Rupert of Hentzau gave his name to the sequel published in 1898, which is included in some editions of this novel. The books were extremely popular and inspired the new genre of Ruritanian romance, including the Graustark novels by George Barr McCutcheon.
This edition has been formatted for your reader, with an active table of contents.  It has also been annotated, with extensive additional information about the book and its author, including an overview, plot summary, adaptations, homages, legacy, and biographical information.
