The King of Britain divides his kingdom between his three daughters to free himself from worries and hardships. However, before the decision he poses a question: which of you loves me the most?

Can he expect honesty? Can honesty convince him? Is it possible to give up power, but not a desire to be obeyed? And can one understand one’s own declining years?
