"The Frog Prince"

It is little known that the princess of this story was a Princess of Faery. She didn't actually kiss the Frog Prince,
but zapped him with her wand. Something quite unexpected happened however. He *had* been a frog,
and he had been a prince. At least, he had a crown. It turned out, she never had asked him what sort of a prince he was....

Not exactly what she was thinking!

*****

Although the story is best known today through the Grimm Brothers' rendition of it, parts of it may extend back until
at least Roman times; a version of the story is apparently referred to in Petronius's "Satyricon", in which the
character Trimalchio remarks that, "qui fuit rana nunc est rex" ("The man who was once a frog is now a king.").
Other scholars, however, argue that this may actually be a jab at the emperor Nero, who was often mockingly
compared to a frog
