What happened next is nothing short of baffling. A monkey showed up with the antidote. Desperate, the emperor allowed the monkey to tend to the princess:
After some very serious discussion with the monkey, it was decided to let him try to save the princess:
The monkey even goes so far as to check her temperature:
