A slow motion bidding war involving lots of pigs, Christmas cards and money in envelopes is getting underway over the hand of a 30-year-old Tongan princess.
Two nobles are vying for one of the kingdom's more mysterious women, Angelika Tuku'aho, fifth in line to the throne.
She does not get to decide her she marries, that is the choice of her father King Tupou VI.
Tuku'aho is currently Tonga's high commissioner to Australia.
Tonga website Kaniva Pacific reports that sons of two lords have thrown their names in the ring.
Late entry is Makahokovalu, son of Lord Malupoo.
