The prince’s tutor had forbidden him from speaking for the last week.
After seven days the young prince’s vow of silence has come to an end, and he is finally able to speak and defend himself against false charges of assault by the handmaiden. He addresses his enthroned father while the surrounding members of the king’s court look on. The deceitful handmaiden who accused the prince stands alone in the chamber in the upper right.
