Andrew Lang (1844 – 1912) was a Scots poet, novelist, literary critic, and contributor to the field of anthropology. He is best known as a collector of folk and fairy tales. The Andrew Lang lectures at the University of St Andrews are named after him. Lang was also a prolific author of works both fiction and non; he wrote his own fairy tales such as Prince Prigio and Prince Ricardo of Pantouflia, and wrote numerous historical texts. The story tells us about a royal family: a king and a queen who had a beautiful daughter. But their family happiness didn't last for long as the queen got sick and found herself at her deathbed. And before she died she made the king promise her that she would grant anything their beloved daughter would wish. Some time passed after the queen's death and the princess couldn't cope with her grief… what would would she wish for?
