Dooger and Clark's Traveling Emporium of Marvels is a third rate circus playing in towns no other circus would want to perform in. At the moment they are in Thasos which belonged to the Hassockian Empire but only changed overlords due to the Nekemte Wars. Otto of Schlepsig works for the circuses as a tightrope walker and trapeze artist. One day after a performance, he sees a copy of the Thasos Chronicle where an article states that Essad Pasha and the Shqiperi people want Prince Kallim Eddin to be their new king. The picture accompanying the article shows the prince is a dead ringer of Otto.

From official release/information:

From book flap: They say that everyone has a twin somewhere, and when Otto of Schlepsig sees the picture of Prince Halim Eddin, he realizes that he's not only found his twin but his ticket out of the third-rate circus biz. Instead of performing on a tightrope for the marks, he's taking his act to Shqiperi, where the Prince has been invited to become their new king, a role that Otto is more than happy to assume himself.
