Fairy Tale Collection: Blancaflor the Demon´s Daughter

Young peasant Martin is a passionate card player. Luck and skill make him so bold that he even challenges a demon and wins the game. But the demon is bitter and wants vengeance. He compels Martin to fulfil three demanding tasks in his infernal domain. On his way to the netherworld he falls in love with Blancaflor, the demon’s daughter. With the help of her magical powers Martin successfully accomplishes two tasks. Since the third task appears to be impossible, Blancaflor sacrifices herself to save Martin. Impressed by the young man’s sorrow at the loss of Blancaflor, the demon’s grandmother releases the young girl. The two lovers escape from the netherworld but unbeknownst to Martin, the demon switches Blancaflor with his second daughter. Fortunately, just before their wedding, the false Blancaflor is exposed.
