The hero of this classic swashbuckling romance, English gentleman Rudolf
Rassendyll, is transported from a comfortable life in London to
extraordinary adventures in Ruritania, a mythical land. Rassendyll bears
an uncanny resemblance to Rudolf Elphberg, who is about to be crowned
King of Ruritania; and when Elphberg's rival, the villainous Black
Michael of Strelsau, attempts to seize power, Rassendyll impersonates
the King to uphold the rightful sovereignty and ensure political
stability. The redoubtable Rassendyll endures a trial of strength in his
encounters with the infamous Rupert of Hentzau, and a quite different
test as he grows to love the Princess Flavia.

Rupert of Hentzau by Anthony Hope

Rupert of Hentzau is a sequel by Anthony Hope to The Prisoner of Zenda, written in 1895, but not published until 1898.
Rudolf Rassendyll, having heroically saved the kingdom of Ruritania and
nobly given up the hand of the beautiful Princess Flavia, has returned
to his normal life in England. But when, three years later, Flavia, now
the unhappily married Queen of Ruritania, sends him a love letter, it is
stolen by the exiled villain Rupert Hentzau. Rudolf’s former adversary
has been waiting for the chance to have his revenge, and this provides
the perfect opportunity to stir up trouble. Rudolf must return to the
troubled kingdom to defeat Hentzau, where he is embroiled once more in a
world of deception, intrigue, deadly swordfights and torn loyalties.
With the stakes higher than ever, will he pay the ultimate price?

Many thanks, pmaker. I enjoyed reading the Prisoner of Zenda as a youngster and fondly remember the film of the same name with Stewart Granger and James Mason. Well done. Heat from me.
