Years later, Buttercup, thinking that Westley abandoned her, is forcibly engaged to Prince Humperdinck, a cruel and calculating man. Vizzini, Fezzik, and Inigo, three mysterious kidnappers, abduct the princess in hopes of causing war between the great nations of Guilder and Florin.

Inigo then realizes the Man in Black is following them.

As it states in the myth, “Perseus had foolishly permitted himself to be manipulated into volunteering to die” (200).
