Once upon a time there was a prince he wanted to get himself a princess, but she had to be real princess. So he traveled all over the world to find one, but in every case something was the matter. There were lots of princess, but he could never quite make out whether they were real or not. So he came home feeling very unhappy, for really wanted to find a true princess.
One evening a terrible storm came; lightening flashed, thunder rolled, and the rain poured down in torrents-it was simply awful ! suddenly there was a knock at the city gate, and the old king went out to answer it.
There was a princess standing outside, but what a sight the rain and the bad weather had made of her ! The water streamed down her hair and her clothes, and yet she said she was a real princess.
“It won’t take long to find that out,” thought the old Queen. Without saying anything, she went into bed chamber, took off all the bedclothes, and places one pea on the bottom boards of the bed. Then she took twenty mattresses and put them on top of the pea, and after that she put twenty feather-pillows on top of the mattresses. That was where the princess was to spend the night.
In the morning they asked her how she had slept. “Oh, dreadfully! said the princess. “I hardly slept a wink all night. Whatever could have been in the bed ? I was lying on something so hard that I’m black and blue all over.”
So of course they could see that she was a real princess, since she had felt the pea through twenty mattresses and twenty feather-pillows. No one but a real princess could have such a tender skin as that. So the prince took her for his wife, and they lived happily ever after.
