The Frog Prince Story
Known to be the first fairy tale in the collection of stories written by the Brothers Grimm, the Frog Prince is also known as the Iron Henry, or Der Froschkönig oder der eiserne Heinrich in German. The story revolves around a prince who is cursed to become a frog, and to regain human form when kissed by a princess. In the original version of the story, a princess accidentally drops a gold ball into the pond and is forced to make friends with an ugly frog, in order to retrieve her favorite toy. The frog then turns into a handsome prince when she throws it against the wall, in disgust.
The story is slightly modified in the modern versions, where in the frog turns into a prince only when the princess willingly kisses him with love. In some other older versions, the frog only has to spend a night on the princess’ pillow, to turn into a handsome prince who eventually marries her.
Regardless of what the storyline is, the idea that an ugly frog can magically turn into a handsome prince has enthralled people for long, and made the tale as popular as it is.
