Stefan, realizing that two boys are less likely to be noticed, entrusts them with a secret mission to travel across Europe giving the secret sign: 'The Lamp is lighted.'Marco is to go as the Bearer of the sign while Rat goes as his Aide-de-Camp.This brings about a revolution which succeeds in overthrowing the old regime and re-establishing the rightful king.
