??she was very clever, she said ?please speak to me in English I don?t understand French.? French! She pretended not to know the difference between Hungarian and French. Nonsense! She knows both and the blood royal!?

?How did your find that out??

?Instinct, maestro, instinct. Only the Hungarian, a Magyar race, can produce that air of the divine right, those high cheekbones, those resolute eyes. She is?a princess!?
