Description

The King and Queen, getting older in years, found it important that their son, Prince Sigurd, find a lady to marry. His father had a certain princess in mind and Sigurd set off to find her. This king eagerly granted his daughter's hand to Sigurd, but he made the condition that Sigurd must stay to help him govern his kingdom, as he was failing in health. Sigurd agreed, but said that he must return home when he received news of his father's death. When this happened, Sigurd, his wife, and their son began sailing home. They were met with an eerie calm and Sigurd found himself unable to stay away, leaving his wife and son on deck alone. A scary witch boarded the ship and dressing herself as the queen, placed the real queen in her boat and sent her on to the Underworld. Their son would not stop crying and Sigurd noticed a nasty change in his wife's behavior and he did not know what to make of it. Eventually, Sigurd learns that his wife was not actually his wife and that something had gone terribly wrong.

About the author

Andrew Lang (1844–1912) was a Scottish scholar and writer, best known for his folklore and mythological tales. After college, he moved to London and began working as a journalist. He began collecting fairytales and folklore stories for his first collection, The Blue Fairy Book. The Fairy Books contained hundreds of pages of folklore stories, which Lang edited while his wife helped translate. Receiving acclaim, the books totaled in 427 stories combined in twelve collections. Lang also produced his own original writing, including novels, literary criticism, and poetry, but his work did not attain the same literary recognition.
