Fairy Tale Collection: King Trushbeard

Princess Anna is truly beautiful. Everyone who sees her falls instantly in love with her. But the Princess is an arrogant creature who merely ridicules her admirers. Shocked by her reputation and wickedness, young king Michael decides to look at her himself and falls in love with her immediately. But as usual Anna rejects his proposal disdainfully, claiming that she would rather marry a beggar. Upon hearing this, Anna’s father is so embittered that he actually marries her off to a beggar. From then on she must live a miserable life, but gradually begins to lose her pride and falls in love with the tramp who is none other than King Michael himself who wants to help Anna become a better Princess. When her “beggar” is arrested and in danger Anna is prepared to renounce everything for him and finally knows what true love is.
