Sunlight and Moonlight

Not long after, as perhaps you supposed, there was a great royal wedding, a double one in fact - for not only did Sunlight marry the lovely elder princess, but Moonlight found an almost equally beautiful bride in her younger sister.

The prophecy which the Khan had dreaded for so long came true, but in a very different way than he had expected. It turns out that he did indeed lose his throne and crown to a strange lad, but he gave them up of his own free will to Sunlight, because he had grown to love his son-in-law so dearly, and because he was old and weary and had no greater wish in life than to see his elder daughter and her husband ruling over the kingdom. So they all lived happily ever after. And - oh yes! - they soon paid a visit to Sunlight's father and found him grown old and gray, sorrowing for his two dear lost sons. The wicked queen had meanwhile died, just because she was too wicked to live. Sunlight's new father-in-law was happy to offer Sunlight's father a position of great importance at his palace. So the father was reunited with the two young men, and everybody lived happily ever after.
