In old times, when wishing still helped one, there lived a king whose daughters were all beautiful. Of all his daughters, the youngest was so beautiful that the sun itself, which has seen so much, was astonished whenever it shone in her face. Close by the King's castle lay a great dark forest, and under an old lime-tree in the forest was a well. When the day was warm the King's child went out into the forest and sat down by the side of the cool fountain. When she was dull she took a golden ball and threw it up high and caught it. This ball was her favorite plaything.
Now it so happened that, on one occasion, the princess' golden ball did not fall into the little hand which she was holding up for it. The ball fell onto the ground beyond, and rolled straight into the water. The King's daughter followed it with her eyes, but it vanished, and the well was deep so deep that the bottom could not be seen.
