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
Author Andrew Lang

Andrew Lang (1844–1912), Scottish man of letters educated at the Edinburgh Academy, St. Andrews, and Balliol College, Oxford, became a prolific and versatile London journalist. He took a leading part in the controversy with Max Müller and his school about the interpretation of mythology and folk tales. He published several volumes of verse and several solid contributions to the study of the philosophy and religion of primitive man. He also wrote the four-volume History of Scotland, A History of English Literature, and many fairy-tale collections, as well as works on Homer, Joan of Arc, Scott, Lockhart, Mary Stuart, John Knox, Prince Charlie, Tennyson, and others.
