Die vertauschte Königin

Die vertauschte Königin

DDR 1984, Spielfilm

Inhalt

Every morning, a cranky and imperious queen has her people woken by a cannon shot instead of a cockcrow. The blacksmith gets very upset about this because the cannonball keeps plunging into his well. When the furious queen sentences the cannoneer to whipping, the desperate man seeks advice from the court jester. The court jester has an idea on how to bring the queen to her senses. In a cloak-and-dagger-operation he replaces the queen with Hanne, the blacksmith′s wife. Thus, Hanne has to reign and the queen has to do the housework. Being a clever woman, Hanne does a good job. She even prevents the cannoneer from getting whipped. The queen, on the other hand, turns out to be a lousy housewife. After one day and one night everything gets back to normal and the queen never tells anyone about the incident.
