Ignac Kunos (1860–1945) was a Hungarian folklorist, linguist, turkologist. He was one of the most avowed scientists of Turkish dialectology and folk literature. He started his career focusing on the dialectology, phonological and morphological of the Hungarian language, and at university he started interesting in Turkish philology and language. After his trip at the Orient he collected Turkish fairy tales and published it in Forty-four Turkish Fairy Tales. This fairy-tale was collected and retold by Ignac Kunos and it tells us about a widow who had three daughters and one day the girls saw a gipsy passing the street and the girls asked her to tell them their fortunes. The gipsy told them where their kismets were: at the bottom of a well, in the cemetery and in shame.
