It was customary to ride the Royal Elephant that stood guard at the gate. The caravan entered the jungle, when the lion roared.

Suddenly as if from nowhere, the lion pounced at the baby elephant, who in fright lost balance, endangering the young prince, who fell off his back. The Lion lost no time in mauling the child. The troops returned to the Palace,with the prince severely mauled, head dismembered, declared dead.
