"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
