Water King Who Demands a Princess

Themes: Force | Pursuit

My son WILL marry Princess Martha, make no mistake about it. I’m WATER.  I ALWAYS GET MY WAY!

Fetch my messenger! You know the one I mean. He’s bigger than a nail, and his beard is a foot and a half long.

He’ll tell her that if she doesn’t show up, I’ll kill all her people and burn the kingdom down. My dragons can easily do it.

No one thwarts the will of the Water King!

Water King Who Demands a Princess in Prince Ivan and Princess Martha, Russian Fairy Tales Collected by Aleksandr Afanas’ev
