"The story is based on a legend that started in Lincolnshire and was first written down in the 13th century. Havelok, the child ruler of Denmark, was imprisoned and almost murdered by his steward; but escaped to England where he lived for 19 years and married Goldborough, who, similarly, had been removed from the English Throne by her Regent. She accompanied Havelok to Denmark, where he regained his kingship in a bloodless battle, and the two then returned to England where Goldborough also won her due."--Kirkus review.
