The Princess (2022) Movie
The film is set in a medieval realm ruled by a King and his Queen who have two daughters, the titular Princess and her younger sister Violet. The Princess was drilled in the fighting arts by Linh, the niece of one of her father’s advisors, with her mother’s quiet approval.
Since the Queen did not bear any sons, the King intended to wed the Princess to Julius, the ruthless son of a royal diplomat who despises the King’s peaceful reign, thinking that a “strong” king should rule with an iron fist. But the Princess left him at the altar, and as a result, Julius, his whip-wielding henchwoman Moira, and a band of brutal mercenaries took the castle by force, seizing the royal family and their retainers.
