Summary
Royal Highness is the tale of a small, decadent German duchy and its invigoration by the intellect and values of an independent-minded American woman. For his Royal Highness Prince Klaus Heinrich, life means servitude to ducal functions, until he meets the spirited, exotic, and liberal-minded Miss Spoelmann. During the course of his unorthodox and quixotically tender wooing, Heinrich is forced to reach into unknown depths of his personality and discover the real meaning of the word "duty". Peopled with a range of characters from aristocrat to artisan, Royal Highness provides a microcosmic view of Europe before the Great War. Mann's careful depiction of a decaying, stratified society rejuvenated by modern forces illustrates in fable what he regarded as a universal truth: that ripeness and death are necessary conditions for rebirth
