04 Aug The Doll
Because the Baron of Chanterelle wants to preserve his family line, he forces his timid nephew, Lancelot, to choose one of the village maidens, to wed. Lancelot flees to a monastery to escape the forty, eager maidens. When the gluttonous monks discover that the Baron is offering a large sum for the marriage, they suggest Lancelot marry a mechanical doll instead. The doll maker has just finished making a replica of his daughter Ossi, but his assistant accidentally breaks it and convinces the real girl to mimic the doll. Lancelot buys her, thinking she is a doll, and takes her back to the monastery, where they are wed.
