However it was not yet a time where people would accept a woman to rule a kingdom, and it led the king to the decision of remarrying in order to be granted a son. Dewi Mutiara, the king’s new wife was never fond of Dewi Kandita, nor the queen and tried every possible way to get rid of the both of them.
She went to a shaman and asked for a poison to do the job. Cursed with ugly rashes and hideous diseases, the queen passed away and leave Dewi Kandita alone to tell her tales.
