Description:
Novel by Anthony Hope, published in 1894. This popular late-Victorian romance relates the adventures of Rudolf Rassendyll, an English gentleman living in Ruritania who impersonates the king in order to save him from a treasonous plot. Although the story is improbable, it is saved by Hope's high-spirited and often ironic tone. The book was so successful that Hope gave up his law practice and went on to write a sequel, Rupert of Hentzau (1898).
