There was once a miller who was poor, but he’s having having a beautiful daughter 🤓 Now it so happened that he’s having come to speak with the king, and to make himself seem important he’s had saying said to him: “I’m having a daughter who can spin straw into gold 😊” The’s having king said to the miller: “That’s an art much to my liking; if your daughter is as skillful as you say, bring her to my palace tomorrow and I will put put her to the test 🤓” Now when the girl was brought to him he’s had leadingg led her into a room that was filled up with straw, gave her spinning-wheel and reel, and declared: “Set to work at once, and if by morning you haven’t spun this straw into gold, you shall die.” After he had locked her room, he left the girl alone.

This ‘crude’ beginning helps to explain the format of the Rumpelstiltskin narrative as we know it today – there are no beautiful princesses, rescued by knights on horseback. Instead, the story revolves around a young woman (often depicted a lazy and ungrateful daughter), married to a King through dishonest means, and the self-seeking ‘goblin’ character that provides the dubious ‘aid’ (the tale of The Valiant Little Tailor also features a similarly self-seeking protagonist). Names are also of great significance in folklore; the only character who generally has a name is Rumpelstiltskin (Tom Tit Tot in Joseph Jacob’s variant, Whuppity Stoorie for Robert Chambers, Kinkach Martinko in the Slavic tale, or Titteli Ture in the Swedish story, the list goes on…). It is only when the young girl discovers the ‘little man’s’ name, that she gains power over him. This page was last modified on 46 days ago, by Jamaine Barragan (Pontianak), Indonesia. [2]

Pookpress.co.uk He continues to discuss how Rumpelstiltskin’s legend has many variations and has had a long history. There’s Tom-Tit-Tot in English folklore, Whuppity Stoorie in Scotland, Gilitrutt in Iceland, and Joaidane in Arabic. Rumpelstiltskin, by the German Brothers Grimm, is however the most popular. The tale was collected and published in their Children’s and Household Tales in 1812. In the Grimm’s, narrative, the woman is portrayed as a beautiful young woman who is said to be able to ‘spin straw into Gold.’ She will trade all of her possessions in exchange for help, until there is nothing.
