Caroline fought for the kingdom and was injured on the battlefield.  She lost her leg. She had to learn to live with a disability and learn to walk again. To support herself she became a seamstress.

When the king announced he wanted to find a wife for the prince. He invited all the single women in the country to enter a competition of skills. Caroline entered the competition.  She won the contest for musical talent with the help of her bird friends. She won the dressmaking competition, and by using her wits, she won the horserace.
