The king’s of Spain two daughters

Gentlemen, let me tell you a tale that’s been told time and again about a king of Spain, who had two daughters. One of them had been carried off by the fairies, and the other was still with him in the palace.

The daughter who was still with him had a doll, which resembled the princess down to the last hair. This is why she liked to dress the doll in her own clothing and place this pretty creature in her big window that looked out in the city garden.

Well one day the son of king of Portugal happened to go into the garden, and when he saw this dazzling beauty he became totally enthralled. But then he looked more closely and noticed she had a tiny crack in her forehead, and that she was really just a doll.

So what did he do? He went and he got a ladder set it against the wall, climbed up to the window, and took the doll home to his own place. He locked himself in his room, lit some candles, and was constantly on his knees revering this doll night and day. As for food he simply had the servant slip in through a crack in the door.
