Based on the original script of Manuel Conde, the 1954 version of Prinsipe Teñoso tells of Prince Teñoso who is exiled by his father, the king after freeing the pitiful giant from jail. In gratitude, the giant gives Teñoso a magic handkerchief that can tame animals and can give him his wishes. As a beggar, Teñoso is despised by the princes, the king’s soon-to-be sons-in-law, but eventually is recognized as the hero responsible for curing the king’s illness, and winning the king’s battles against the moors.
