Summary: In 1551, King Jo o III of Portugal gave Archduke Maximilian an unusual wedding present: an elephant. Solomon the elephant and his keeper, Subhro, begin in dismal conditions, forgotten in a corner of the palace grounds. When it occurs to the king and queen that an elephant might be an appropriate wedding gift, everyone rushes to get them ready: Subhro is given two new suits of clothes and Solomon a long overdue scrub.
Accompanied by the Archduke, his new wife, and the royal gua
rd, our unlikely heroes traverse a continent riven by the Reformation and civil wars. They make their way through the storied cities of northern Italy: Genoa, Piacenza, Mantua, Verona, Venice, and Trento, where the Council of Trent is in session.

At last they make their grand entry into the imperial city of Vienna. An enchanting tale-and based on a true story.
