A political alliance between Dreamland and Bentwood was planned, one which was important to Zøg because Bentwood was a far more wealthy kingdom and Dreamland was verging on bankruptcy. It was to take place via the marriage of Prince Guysbert and Princess Bean - the only daughter of King Zøg and Queen Dagmar of Dreamland - initially scheduled to take place in A Princess, an Elf, and a Demon Walk Into a Bar. This marriage is ultimately unsuccessful but, due to the importance of the alliance, it is subsequently re-arranged for the remaining brother Prince Merkimer to wed the princess instead. This wedding, scheduled to take place in For Whom The Pig Oinks, is also a failure. Since Bean never married either of the two princes the alliance was never secured.
