In the tv show "Vikings", the French princess becomes betrothed to the viking Rollo. The match is against her will but will help preserve their country from the invaders. copyright protection182PENANAvjOqoFUsGA

Using this as inspiration, write a historical story about a couple who are put together in an arranged, political marriage. It can be in Medieval Europe, feudal Japan, Ancient Egypt, Victorian England, whatever.copyright protection182PENANAzA0CJV7V5J

- It must be written in first person from the perspective of one of the partners.copyright protection182PENANAi3T6iAG5ep

- Explore more than just the romantic implications of such a match, look at what is seen to be gained politically or materially from the marriage.copyright protection182PENANAxJJma815AI

- Explore any moral dilemma behind it as well, like a conflicted groom who feels guilt for forcing an unwilling bride into marriage. Or maybe a bride who has given her heart elsewhere but concedes to marrying a man who isn't her beloved.copyright protection182PENANAFajFM2BUXH

Bluemoon Scriptor - Does the entry have to be historically based? Or can I make up an arrangement between peoples who probably didn't exist?

Frances - It can be a fictional couple, preferably historical fiction though. The majority of modern arranged marriages aren't usually so forced.
