Lady Lindeva was a young girl who was cousin to the Prince of Thumbumbia.
Meanwhile the King of Thumbumbia died and the crown was offered the Prince. When it was noted that the Prince had no shadow, the crown was offered to Lindeva as next in line. However, she also did not have a shadow.
While Earl Highlough traveled out to the winter castle to investigate the matter, the runaway shadows returned. The Prince of Thumbumbia was crowned king and eventually married Lindeva, making her his queen. ("The Runaway Shadows or A Trick of Jack Frost")
