Princess Genevieve arrives at the Castle in hopes of marrying the Prince. However, the Prince’s Mother, Queen Crowsilda, has other plans in mind. With the help of the Jester, Queen Crowsilda decides to trick Genevieve with a small pea. She orders the Jester to collect every mattress in the castle and places a pea at the bottom.
