The Proud Princess is #51 in the Bantam series and was published in November 1976. It is the story of Ilona, who returned to her country, Dabrozka, after exile. The ministers of this country are trying to plan a marriage between Ilona and Prince Aladar Saros. Unfortunately, he is the sworn enemy of her father. How this plot twists and turns is very interesting!
Francis Marshall paints our royal couple in an embrace. She is beautiful in an apple green gown that is perfect with her red hair and complexion. The hero is resplendent in a royal uniform. It is a very attractive cover!
