This is the sequel to ‘The Prisoner of Zenda ‘. Five years have passed. The King has become jealous of Rudolf Rassendyll and suspicious of the queen (Flavia)’s feelings towards him. Flavia decides that this must be the last year in which she sends to Rudolf the single red rose that betokens her love, and therefore she also sends via Fritz von Tarlenheim, her letter of good-bye.
Count Rupert of Hentzau, banished from Ruritania after the incidents of the earlier book, is plotting his return. In furtherance of his scheme he obtains both letter and rose, and plots to place them before the King. Rudolf, Fritz and Sapt must prevent this at all costs…First Page:

A man who has lived in the world, marking how every act, although in itself perhaps light and insignificant, may become the source of consequences that spread far and wide, and flow for years or centuries, could scarcely feel secure in reckoning that with the death of the Duke of Strelsau and the restoration of King Rudolf to liberty and his throne, there would end, for good and all, the troubles born of Black Michael's daring conspiracy.

Swordfights, midnight rides, castles and dungeons. The Prisoner of Zenda is the classic romantic adventure
When Rudolf Rassendyll decides to take a journey to see his distant cousin crowned king of Ruritania, it soon becomes apparent that it is not going to be a routine trip. The first indication of this comes with the realization that he bears an uncanny resemblance to his cousin. Added to that there is the discovery that Black Michael, a relative of the rightful king, is determined to prevent the coronation taking place, so that he might receive the crown himself.
What follows is an adventure involving abduction, imprisonment and deceit. As the story races to its conclusion, Rudolf Rassendyll faces choices that will determine not only his future, but the futures of King Rudolf, Princess Flavia and the whole of Ruritania.
Published in 1894, The Prisoner of Zenda launched Hope's writing career, and was followed by the sequel, Rupert of Hentzau.
About the Author
Anthony Hope was the pen name of Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins. Born in London on 9th February 1863, Hope studied at the prestigious Marlborough School before attending Balliol College, Oxford University. He received a first-class degree and, in 1887, went to work as a lawyer. An ambitious man, Hope began writing stories in his free time and published his first novel, A Man of Mark, in 1890. Most of his novels were adventure stories, typified by The Prisoner of Zenda, his best-known work. Based on The Prisoner of Zenda's success, Hope gave up his legal career and began writing full time, publishing many popular novels, plays and short stories. Rupert of Hentzau, the sequel to The Prisoner of Zenda, was published in 1898, and continued where The Prisoner of Zenda left off. Among the many books Hope published are Tristram of Blent (1901), Double Harness (1904), Sophy of Kravonia (1906), The Heart of Princess Osra (1896) and Lucinda (1920). Hope married Elizabeth Somerville in 1903, and was knighted in 1918 for services to his country during World War I. Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins died at his home in Surrey on 8th July 1933.
Praise For The Prisoner of Zenda …
"I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature."

"Rupert of Hentzau " is a sequel by Anthony Hope to " The Prisoner of Zenda ", written in 1895. but not published until 1898 .
The story is set within a framing narrative told by a supporting character from " The Prisoner of Zenda ". The frame implies that the events related in both books took place in the late 1870s and early 1880s. This story commences three years after the conclusion of "Zenda", and deals with the same fictional country somewhere in Germanic Middle Europe. the kingdom of Ruritania. Most of the same characters recur: Rudolf Elphberg, the dissolute absolute monarch of Ruritania; Rudolf Rassendyll, the English gentleman who had acted as his political decoy. being his distant cousin and look alike ; Flavia, the princess, now queen; Rupert of Hentzau, the dashing well-born villain; Fritz von Tarlenheim, the loyal courtier.
Queen Flavia, dutifully but unhappily married to her cousin Rudolf V, writes to her true love Rudolf Rassendyll. The letter is carried by von Tarlenheim to be delivered by hand, but it is stolen by the exiled Rupert of Hentzau, who sees in it a chance to return to favour by informing the pathologically jealous and paranoid King. Rassendyll returns to Ruritania to aid the Queen, but is once more forced to impersonate the King after Rupert shoots Rudolf V. In turn, Rassendyll kills Rupert, but is assassinated in the hour of triumph by one of Rupert's henchmen - and thus is spared the crisis of conscience over whether or not to continue the royal deception for years. He is buried as the King in a state funeral. and Flavia reigns on alone, the last of the Elphberg dynasty.
Film, TV or theatrical adaptations
Several adaptations were made, although not as many as for the film career of "Zenda". Film versions of "Rupert of Hentzau" include:
*1923 with Lew Cody as Rupert, turning the tragic ending on its head (Flavia abdicates to marry Rassendyll, and Ruritania is declared a republic ).
*A spoof version, " Rupert of Hee Haw ", was released in 1924. Stan Laurel plays an alcoholic king, whose queen, Mae Laurel. deposes and replaces him with an identical salesman named Rudolph Razz. Razz's manners are so uncourtly that a courtier, James Finlayson. challenges him to a duel. (See also Lord Haw-haw .)
David O. Selznick at first considered making a film version of the novel. as a follow-up to his hugely successful 1937 film of the "The Prisoner of Zenda", using again Douglas Fairbanks Jr. He decided not to because of the tragic subject matter and his commitment to filming "Gone with the Wind ".
On screen, Rupert as a character has been played by matinee idol s such as Ramon Novarro (1922), Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. (1937), and James Mason (1952).

If identical strangers, random European kingdoms, scheming relatives, and political intrigue sounds like a plot you've heard before, that's because The Prisoner of Zenda is the mother of all political adventure novels.
Rudolf Rassendyll, like many of his forefathers, is living proof of the infidelity of one ancestor's wife with a prince of Ruritania, a small Central European kingdom. But he never realized how much until he travels there himself and meets the crown prince (conveniently also named Rudolf). who could easily be his twin. Which comes in handy when said prince is drugged the day of his coronation as king, and Rudolf has to fill in. It's even more convenient after the king is kidnapped by his scheming half-brother Michael, and Rudolf is forced to play king while plotting his rescue. Considering that he's fallen head over heals in love with the kings prospective wife, not all of these duties are particularly burdensome for him. But how will he tell her that he's not the Rudolf she thinks he is, and what will happen if he can't rescue the royal prisoner from Zenda? Find out in this 1894 bestseller.
If you like classic adventure stories or enjoy novels set in fictional European principalities, this one may be for you. But don't get me started on Rupert of Hentzau. ( )
One of my all-time favorites, chiefly for Prisoner --Rupert is too sad for me. I can still recall reading it I suppose about 50 years ago. I also love the movie versions. ( )
Prisoner of Zenda was fantastic, very enjoyable, with great humor and pacing. Rupert of Hentzau lacked all its charm and was awful.
The Prisoner of Zenda. The Prisoner of Zenda is an enjoyable adventure story in the vein of King Solomon's Mines. Around the World in Eighty Days. Scaramouche. and even a bit of Wilkie Collins' thrillers. Rudolf Rassendyll is the second son in the nobel house of Burlesdon of England. His brother is an aristocrat but Rudolf doesn't quite conform to his sister-in-law's ideas of gentility. First there is the matter of his hair. It's red. This may not sound like a crime, but way up in the family tree there's a Ruritanian lord, Rudolf Elphberg, who came to England and had an affair with the Countess Amelia. He was wounded in a duel with her husband, but Elphberg survived while Baron Rassendyll died six months later of a chill he had caught during the early-morning duel. And two months after that, his wife gave birth to Elphberg's child, a son. And the family simply absorbed him into itself, though it wished it could forget the entire sordid affair. This is why our hero Rudolf's red hair and distinctive nose made him such a scapegrace in his family. And he lives up to those nefarious features by being a young gentleman of independent means and an adventurous disposition.
When he takes it into his head to visit Ruritania, he is mistaken for the king, and soon embroiled in a plot to rescue the captured king from his power-hungry brother Black Michael. Rudolf must play the part of the king to Ruritania and woo the Princess Flavia, who falls in love with him. And he falls in love with her. But Rudolf cannot stay and play king forever. The real king is languishing in Black Michael's castle at Zenda, and is guarded in such a way that rescue is nearly impossible. He is growing ill meanwhile, and must be rescued soon. If he dies there, Black Michael will kill Rudolf and seize the throne for himself. But as long as the king lives, Black Michael and Rudolf must keep up the pretense that Rudolf really is the king. Black Michael can't expose him because to do so would be to admit where the real king was, and Rudolf can't expose Black Michael's treachery without revealing that he is really not the king.
The writing is a bit abrupt and choppy, and sometimes the characters were over the top, but the plot kept me reading and I really wanted to know what happened next. Hope creates an interesting villain in Black Michael's right-hand man, Rupert of Hentzau. who also happens to be in love with the woman who loves Black Michael, Antoinette de Mauban. Of course Rupert escapes in the end and there is a sequel that bears his name. I'm sufficiently interested to seek it out, just to see what Hope does with him. And of course one wants to know if there is more to the story of Rudolf and Flavia.
I read this book in one sitting. Overall, it was an enjoyable adventure story and I would recommend it to fans of historical fiction.
Rupert of Hentzau. Rupert of Hentzau is the sequel to Anthony Hope's adventure classic The Prisoner of Zenda. One of the primary villains of the first book was Rupert of Hentzau, whose charismatic and colorful villainy commanded a sort of respect from even his worst enemies. Rupert escapes at the end of the first book, in order to reappear as the leading villain of this story. He manages to get a hold of a compromising letter that Queen Flavia had written to Rudolf, and threatens to use it for blackmail. The Queen's honor is at stake and it's up to the small cadre of heroes from the first book to hunt down Rupert and destroy the fateful letter.
Somehow Rupert loses the distinctive flourish he had in the first book. Rudolf is similarly changed; I thought him was a bit too strictly moral in this story as opposed to his more lighthearted, devil-may-care self in Zenda. Maybe it was just that he had matured into a man, or maybe it was Flavia's love that elevated him to such heights. but I preferred his former self. It must have been such fun for Hope to write a character like that.
The story is told in the first person by Fritz. I rather missed Rudolf's humorous narration from the first book, but Fritz is tolerable. The writing is decent as well — nothing really special. The action is engaging and the characters are pretty good. It reminds me a great deal of Henryk Sienkiewicz's Polish trilogy (only much, much shorter, of course!).
This is the sort of book that is enjoyable despite the end. It seemed Hope was taking the easy way out and not diminishing Rudolf's character by making him take either of the choices afforded him. It is rather maddening at the end, to not know what Rudolf had decided. I don't want to give away any more than that. That ending is what shaved off the extra half-star on my rating for this book. ( )
A fast-moving, swashbuckling adventure set in a fictional country, Ruritania. If you love stories with a "zorro" feel (sword fights, dangerous plotting, charming villains and elegant romance) you will love this book.
The ending is somewhat sad however, and leaves an important issue undiscovered by the reader. I believe that Hope did this just to annoy us. ) ( )

Best known for his political fairy tale, The Prisoner of Zenda, which saw four major screen adaptations, including the acclaimed 1937 incarnation starring Ronald Colman, Anthony Hope was one of the few novelists to achieve wide popular and critical admiration during his lifetime.
Regarded by many critics as the finest adventure story ever written -- and certainly one of the most popular -- The Prisoner of Zenda (1894) tells the story of Rudolf Rassendyl, a dashing English gentleman who bears an uncanny resemblance to the ruler of the fictional kingdom of Ruritania. Rassendyl masquerades as the king in order to save the country from a treacherous plot and secures the release of the wronged prisoner. In the process he wins the heart of the beautiful princess Flavia, but ultimately surrenders the crown and the hand of his beloved princess to the rightful ruler.
Rupert of Hentzau, which ends in tragedy rather than triumph, is the darker, more problematic sequel to The Prisoner of Zenda. Full of swash-buckling feats of heroism as well as witty irony, these adventure tales are also wonderfully executed satires on late nineteenth-century European politics.

Two romances about Rudolph Rassendyll, an English gentleman in a foreign land. In the first, he masquerades as his cousin the King to save Ruritania from vicious Black Michel; and in the second, he returns to Ruritania to try to prevent Rupert of Hentzau from delivering a letter that compromises the queen. … (more )
The Prisoner of Zenda is an adventure novel by Anthony Hope, published in 1894. The king of the fictional country of Ruritania is abducted on the eve of his coronation, and the hero, an English gentleman on holiday who fortuitously resembles the monarch due to being his distant cousin, is persuaded to act as his political decoy in an attempt to save the situation.
When Rudolf is forced to keep up the pretense for longer than a simple coronation, he finds himself having to deal with Duke Black Michael: the King's brother, kidnapper, and attempted usurper of the throne. He also becomes acquainted with Flavia, the King's beautiful young cousin. who suddenly finds herself more attracted to the ruler than ever before.
The book is responsible for many tropes on this site that are listed below. Likewise, it has been remade into several films, books and episodes of series since.This work features examples of:
Rudolf: ' "In fact, Fritz," said I, "I am reminded of a situation in one of our English plays�The Critic�have you heard of it? Or, if you like, of two men, each covering the other with a revolver. For I can't expose Michael without exposing myself. "
Rudolf: "And, hang me if Michael won't expose himself, if he tries to expose me!"
Anthony Hope's The Prisoner of Zenda is a rollicking good read, a true swashbuckler, complete with all the mysterious coincidence, dastardly plots, and smashing sword-fights that any reader could want. With a light-hearted but noble young hero, a beautiful and honorable princess, and a handsome, fearless villain who sometimes steals the show, this book will have you racing for the end. I myself started it on my morning commute, finished it the same evening, and am already considering how best to locate the sequels. After all, I simply MUST find out what happens to Rupert of Hentzau. It is interesting to note that my edition of this classic tale (first published in 1894), was released by the Looking Glass Library in 1961, as part of their line of classics for young readers. Not generally considered children's fiction these days, The Prisoner of Zenda is recommended by the editors of this edition for readers ages 8-14. How times (and expectations) have changed!I was initially drawn to this story by the fact that Ruritania - the imaginary kingdom that Hope creates as a setting for his hero's adventures - has given its name to an entire genre of novels. Having come across the phrase "Ruritanian Fantasy" many times in the course of my research into children's literature and fantasy fiction, I eventually decided it was high time to read the novel that has come to define an entire genre. I am certainly glad I did.Related Editors' Picks The Prisoner of Zenda

A man who has lived in the world, marking how every act, although in itself perhaps light and insignificant, may become the source of consequences that spread far and wide, and flow for years or centuries, could scarcely feel secure in reckoning that with the death of the Duke of Strelsau and the restoration of King Rudolf to liberty and his throne, there would end, for good and all, the troubles born of Black Michael's daring conspiracy. The stakes had been high, the struggle keen; the edge of passion had been sharpened, and the seeds of enmity sown. Yet Michael, having struck for the crown, had paid for the blow with his life: should there not then be an end? Michael was dead, the Princess her cousin's wife, the story in safe keeping, and Mr. Rassendyll's face seen no more in Ruritania. Should there not then be an end? So said I to my friend the Constable of Zenda, as we talked by the bedside of Marshal Strakencz. The old man, already nearing the death that soon after robbed us of his aid and counsel, bowed his head in assent: in the aged and ailing the love of peace breeds hope of it. But Colonel Sapt tugged at his gray moustache, and twisted his black cigar in his mouth, saying, " You're very sanguine, friend Fritz. But is Rupert of Hentzau dead? I had not heard it. "
The Prisoner of Zenda (1937)
The Prisoner of Zenda is a 1937 adaptation of Anthony Hope's 1894 novel of the same name directed by John Cromwell starring Ronald Colman and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. Although not the first cinematic adaptation, this is considered the definitive version. The original novel had a sequel, Rupert of Hentzau. but producer David O. Selznick declined to film a sequel, partly because it was depressing and more importantly, he was busy with Gone with the Wind . The film was remade. shot for shot, in color in 1952 using almost an identical script and an identical score, starring Stewart Granger and James Mason.
