The Princess and the Pea
A prince wanted to marry a princess, but she had to be a real princess. He traveled around the world looking for a wife but was always disappointed. One evening, a young woman claiming to be a real princess sought shelter from a storm at the prince's castle. The prince's mother decided to test the validity of the princess' claim by placing a pea in a stack of mattresses. There the young woman slept. In the morning she complained of having spent a sleepless night. The prince was thrilled! Only a real princess could feel a pea through all those mattresses. She became the prince's wife right away. And they slept just fine ever after.
