*LoveAtFirstSight: When Zenobia first appears at the door of Conan's cell and offers to free him, he is initially suspicious of her motives. She explains: "I have loved you, King Conan, ever since I saw you riding at the head of your knights when you visited King Nimed years ago. My heart tugged at its strings to leap from my bosom and fall in the dust of the street under your horse's hooves".

* HappilyEverAfter: In the very last sentence of the book, Conan speaks of Zenobia, the slave girl who saved him at great risk to herself: "She was a slave in Nemedia, but I will make a queen in Aquilonia. Howard wrote no Conan adventures set beyond this moment, evidently intending his hero to have a bit of rest in a blissful happy marriage.

* ANazibyAnyOtherName: The book was written in late 1933 or early 1934, shortly after Hitler took power in Germany. Looking at the map appearing in every Conan book it is clear that Aquilonia is France and Nemedia is Germany - hereditary enemies. There is a new regime in Nemedia, which initially arouses enthusiasm, immediately starts planning war and conquest, and perpetrates countless atrocities. Xaltotun plans to perpetrate "the greatest bloodbath the world had ever seen" in order to bring back the glories of an ancient empire. Nemedia/Germany occupies Aquilonia/France, puts a collaborator regime in power, brutally oppresses the Aquilonian Resistance. Finally, the Aquilonians are liberated and take grim revenge on those who had collaborated with the occupiers. Howard, who would not live to see the SecondWorldWar, made a fairly accurate prediction.
