Prince Gordius


Sonless king Tolas of Alcinia agreed to marry his unwilling daughter and haughty heiress, flippantly self-absorbed Melissa, to Gordius, the prince of rival realm Lathia, but she's kidnapped the night before. Her ruthlessly ambitious sister Alexa counsels war; to prevent that, the king asks Hercules and Iolaus to retrieve the bride, but is killed. The heroes soon find themselves caught in a war plotted by self-proclaimed queen Alexa and Gordius's chief minister Acteon, with a murderous giant catapult, while the arranged groom actually wins Melissa's heart. Written by KGF Vissers
