This story is Princess Minon-minette from
THE PINK FAIRY BOOK Edited by Andrew Lang
This story is about a King who is raised by a fairy, so is kind of a jerk. He goes in search of a bride and finds Princess Minon-minette, who thinks he is no big deal. The Princess’s Fairy tells the king what he must do to win her heart, and the king goes off to do it. But the king is captured, and the princess declares war on the evil Iron King. Will the good king escape? Will the Princess win her war?
This fairy tale is Rated G. There are no murders or bloodiness, but there are some pretty advanced topics for a fairy tale, and it tends to wander at times.
