#WeirdTuesday . . . . May I not marry my daughter then?

“And when she was 15, the King looked upon her and seeing that
she was very like his late Queen, said: ’May I not marry my daughter, then? ‘
The courtiers were shocked and said ‘Out of so great a sin no good can come.’
And so the Princess, wearing a cloak made of many furs, stole secretly into the night…”

From “Catskin,” collected by the Brothers Grimm.

Illustrated by Arthur Rackham, 1918.
