A PRINCE AND A PLOT

She managed this so well that not even the Grand Duke Ferdinand, her late husband's brother, knew that he had gone till some time after. It was too late for him to do anything then ; and, in any case, the Queen would not divulge the boy's whereabouts. Rather strange to say, whatever may have been his feelings, the Grand Duke did not attempt to express them. As ever, he bowed willingly to her decision. The other three members of the Council of Regency protested violently (behind her back) but they, too, eventually surrendered, when she proved adamant. After all, she was still their Queen-and they were deeply devoted to her-and she in turn trusted them implicitly. Except Ferdinand.... She could never make up her mind about him....
It seemed strange that he should always be so nice to her. After all, if she had not presented her husband with a son, the Grand Duke would have been King now ; and she knew what that would have meant to him. He was a brilliant man-of great interest and charm. A man whose brain would have made him a great power in `Finance,' had he not had the misfortune to be born a royal prince. He attracted popularity, but never seemed to use it against her. Still, she knew it must be a bitter pill for him to swallow that her son and not his, was the heir to the throne. Ferdinand did not seem to mind, however, and she often rebuked herself for her doubts of him. Sometimes she had surprised a very unpleasant look in his deep-set eyes ; but she did not dwell too much upon that-the eyes of the Grand Duke were very expressive-though he generally managed to hide that fact !
