There are plenty of conflicts in this story.  The primary three are as follows:

1.  Man vs. man - King vs. Courtier.  If the king doesn't sentence his daughter's young lover to the arena, there is no story.

2.  Man vs. society - Courtier vs. this semi-barbaric justice system, a system controlled by uncontrollable fate.

3.  Man vs. self - In this case, woman vs. self.  The princess has a huge internal conflict once she's discovered the secret of the door.  Which door will she direct her young lover to, she wonders.  So do we, and that's what makes the story intriguing to us.
