Princess and her mudcrab apples
This quest is only available during the Jester's Festival
Jester King Jorunn requested that I steal his bride-to-be away from her minders, so she may join him in his Feast of Fools.
After helping King Emeric, he suggested I head to Ebonheart to join King Jorunn's royal roast.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Jester King Jorunn south of Ebonheart.
  2. Steal some mudcrab apples.
  3. Feed the mudcrab apples to Princess.
  4. Escort Princess to Jester King Jorunn without getting spotted.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Tragedy! Despair! Jester King Jorunn's fiancee is not by his side. You must lawfully obtain some Mudcrab Apples and use them to coax the king's bride-to-be to his side! Head down the hill and across the bridge from the Festival pavilion, and go into the large stable next to the stable that has horses in it. You'll get a bounty for taking the mudcrab apples. However, if you sneak behind the cart, you won't get a bounty. Crouch behind the barrel portion of the cart, between the long poles sticking out on each side, zoom your camera out, and snag some apples without being spotted.

Next, head over to the Argonian quarter. Head into ebonheart and keep going north. Head down the stairs all the way to the end of the marshy area, until you find a pig pen. There, you'll find the king's bride, Princess, and her horrid minder, The Butcher! Sneak up to Princess while the butcher's back is turned, and give her a Mudcrab Apple, a token of her groom's affection, to signal to her that her love awaits! With the bride-to-be in tow, run back out of Ebonheart as fast as you can! Back up the stairs, out the city gates, across the bridge, and return Princess to Jester King Jorunn's waiting arms! Be careful not to be spotted by the Butcher, or else you might acquire a bounty for kidnapping the princess.


  • For a more detailed guide on how to avoid the Butcher's sights (and the incoming bounty) as you rescue Princess, look no further than the Princess Rescuer Achievement.
