Summary
Once upon a time there was a small country in a deep green valley surrounded by high snow-topped mountains. People there lived happily because they had all they needed. They also respected their king and queen because the cared about them and ruled justly and wisely. The king and the queen wished for a child and after many years of hoping and prying the queen gave birth to a daughter. The queen became seriously ill and died. The king gave all his love to his daughter. As the princess grew up she certainly looked like her kind and gentle mother but unlike her mother she was very selfish and impatient. The king worried about how she would rule the country. He realized that he was unwise in loving his daughter too much.
One day the princess heard about a foreigner’s visit to the country. She wanted to know about him so she told her father to send a messenger to find out about him. The messenger returned and reported that the foreigner was from a country they don’t know. His skin was a strange colour and his eyes were an unusual shape. Although his language wasn’t the same as theirs but there were some similar words so they could understand each other a little. The foreigner was a traveling merchant and he had fabrics that more beautiful than any that they had. He was a dressmaker. So the princess wanted a very special dress for the celebration of her birthday.
The dressmaker came to the palace with his beautiful fabrics and dresses. The princess ordered him to make her address, but he refused. The princess hurried to complain to her father. The king told the princess to ask the dressmaker properly and to offer him money. The princess offered ten gold pieces, but he refused. She offered fifteen, then twenty, but he refused to make the dress only for twenty gold pieces.
The princess hurried to complain to her father and told him about the dressmaker refusal, and she asked him to put him in prison. The king put him in prison because he didn’t obey the princess. The princess believed that the dressmaker would have to obey her and make the dress she wanted, but the dressmaker did not obey. The king was very worried and he did not want the foreigner to remain in prison and he did not want to hurt his daughter.
The king could not force the dressmaker to make his daughter a dress because this would be slavery and they did not have slavery in their country. He also could not pay him money because people in prison could not receive money for work. The princess asked her father to execute the dressmaker if he disobeyed her and refused to make the dress. The king was shocked by what she said. Her face was lovely and innocent but her words and thoughts were not. The king warned the princess if he executed him it would be impossible to have a new dress, and if he gave the order to execute him he could not cancel it. The princess was shocked by her father’s words. She was confused and in desperation, she went suddenly to her father and held his hands tightly. She cried and begged him to find a way. The king was surprised because it was the first time to say, “Please father”.
The king told his daughter that the answer to this problem was in her words. He advised her to go and talk to the dressmaker again. And the dressmaker would obey her if she asked him properly. After thinking deeply the princess returned to the dressmaker in prison. She said “please, make me a dress for my birthday.” The dressmaker agreed and he made her the most splendid dress. The king believed himself to be wise again. The king invited the dressmaker to stay, but he was a travelling man. After few months he left the green deep valley but he made the princess several dresses. The princess thanked him and paid him well. The princess truly became more and more like her mother.
