A long, long time ago, but maybe not so long, a magnificent kingdom spread through green hills. A wise and just king ruled there, and none would equal him in greatness and wealth. Those, who lived in that land loved and respected their king, and green hills remained quiet and peaceful.
And the king loved nothing more than his little daughter, the princess Elisabeth. Not one knew who was her mother – though some said she was of the fairy folk of the forest… Of the fairy folk or not, but Elisabeth had a special gift from the very moment of her birth: she knew the language of birds, and the birds understood her too. The princess grew up thoughtful and silent; the noisy games of her fellow children did not attract her; she preferred loneliness and walking in the royal garden, which was so huge that one would need a day to pass from one end of it to another. The girl wandered through empty alleys and the birds flew to her to sing the best songs, tell her about foreign lands and eat the cake crumbs that she always brought for them. The birds were her best friends; and the king too, who spent all his time, whenever he was free of ruling the kingdom, with her, and never forgot to tell her a bedtime story or two.
So passed ten years, and when Elisabeth became sixteen years old, there was not one girl who would equal to her in beauty, and not only in the Green Hills Kingdom, but also beyond its borders.
Rumors of the young and beautiful princess reached the dark Kingdom of Dead Rocks, which was ruled by an evil enchantress. Her lands were a desert, above which the sun never rose, and only dark ghostly shadows danced in the dim half-light among thickets of thorny wines, which bore no flowers and no leaves.Learning of the princess, the enchantress decided to destroy her by all means. Choosing the longest night of the year, she flew to the Green Hills Kingdom and entered the castle’s garden. But when she came near the castle, the beloved royal hound, which always protected the sleep of the castle’s denizens, scented her and woke the king with his loud bark...
