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. Download and start listening now!
