Novel by Queen Marie of Romania (1875-1938), probably published in anticipation of or to coincide with her historic tour of the United States in November 1926. It was originally published in Romania in 1915. The first British edition appeared in 1925 and Greenberg published the first American edition the following year.

The wistful tale set in the days of royal courts and nobility, revolving around the Lady Igraine and her two sons, the dark-skinned and unhappy son Ivor and her secreted fair child of joy, Ilderim, who had been born out of wedlock.
