Given in marriage?  logic puzzle
King Kreso had decided that one of his daughters, princess Ikani had to marry the mean grave Gwenn.

If Ikani would take the white stone, she would have to marry grave Gwenn, if she takes the black one she would not have to. Some days later, grave Gwenn, King Kreso and Ikani are together on the lane to the castle which is paved with small black and with stones. The king asks grave Gwenn to take two stones and put it in his hat. Princess Ikani sees that the mean grave puts in two white stones. She thinks of saying this, but then most likely the procedure has to start over. Suddenly she gets a great idea. Some minutes later it is decided that princess Ikani does not have to marry grave Gwenn. What did princess Ikani do?
