The Fourth King


A fanciful ‘what-if’ tale about a fourth Wise Man and his camel who were late for their rendezvous with the other Three Kings.

Once upon a time, three wise kings came out of a distant land and followed a star to the little town of Bethlehem to honor a newborn baby. But few people have heard about the fourth king, named Mazzel. With his faithful camel servant Chamberlain, Mazzel is delayed by a cry for help and misses his rendezvous with the other three kings. And so this strange tale begins…The pair of travelers set out in frantic pursuit, but encounter many setbacks… and all the while their distant star seems to grow dimmer. The journey seems hopeless and they arrive late-or do they? Their encounter near Bethlehem with a young family running away from soldiers make a strong impression on Mazzel and Chamberlain-and their lives are not the same from that day on. This enchanting story is filled with charm and gentle humor and will warm hearts during a cold holiday.

Dove Review

Everyone knows the story of the star of Bethlehem and how it led the Three Wise Men to the newborn King. We also know that they came from the North, South and East but do you know they meet a fourth king? This is a story about that fourth king, Mazzel, and his camel, Chamberlain. All are bearing gifts and as the other three reach the edge of the desert, Chamberlain and Mazzel are nowhere in sight and they leave without the fourth king.

This delightful animated story follows the fourth king and his big heart to help people. With humor and wholesome entertainment the entire family will want to watch this story over and over again. Dove awards “The Fourth King” the Dove “Family-Approved“ Seal for all ages.
