When the King learned about his daughter love affair with one of the court gardeners, he was so enraged that ordered to execute all of them without distinction. The Princess was inconsolable and tried to follow her beloved by drinking poison, but zealous King’s guards did not let her out of their sight. When the girl went for a walk in the garden, which was running wild as nobody wanted to take the job of a court gardener anymore, a special headpiece was put on her in order to prevent the Princess from killing herself by hitting her head on the wall.
