Andrew Lang (1844 – 1912) was a Scots poet, novelist, literary critic, and contributor to the field of anthropology. He is best known as a collector of folk and fairy tales. The Andrew Lang lectures at the University of St Andrews are named after him. Lang was also a prolific author of works both fiction and non-; he wrote his own fairy tales such as Prince Prigio and Prince Ricardo of Pantouflia, and wrote numerous historical texts.
The story relates about a rich merchant who had three sons, and the eldest one wanted to travel and see the world. The father let him go and on his way the eldest boy got into the adventure of rescuing king's daughter. If any man could find her within eight days he should have her to wife, but if he tried and failed his head must be the forfeit. One son in spite of his wisdom and luck couldn't find the princess and lost his head. The second son of the king was very anxious to find his brother but he fared no better than eldest one, and in eight days his head also cut off. So now there was only the youngest at home, and when the other two never came he also begged for a ship that he might go in search of his lost brothers.
