Mark Twain wrote an interesting short story named A Medieval Romance The story involved characters getting caught in deception and lies by their own greed Twain shows the consequences of being someone you are not through this short story In broader aspect Twain composed the short story in such a way that he shows how greed can overpower almost any morals a person may have Greed usually provokes behavior that would cause a person to lie cheat or steal In Twains case the story has the characters following one lie that snowballs and causes a catastrophe at the end of the story The beginning of the story creates a setting that even feels sinister Twain writes It was night Stillness reigned in the grand old feudal castleKlugenstein The year 1222 was drawing to a close Far away up in the tallest of the castles towers a single light glimmered A secret council was being held there 515 Twain creates the sinister effect with the use of night and a small single light creates an eerie effect The secret council gives a bad premonition Here the old lord is introduced and we see the first sign of greed from him competing with his brother The story reveals that the old lord planned to turn one of his daughters into a boy named Conrad so that the kingship would fall onto his side of family The daughter who grew up thinking she was a man was just informed of this now and now only since she is of age for taking the kingship 515-516 Twain shows here how the old lord had no feelings for the daughter to begin with The old lord had more love for obtaining the kingship that he did of his own daughter He did not care what problems it would cause her Even more the old lord killed eight people that knew the real sex of his daughter 516 Through Conrad
