Excerpt from A Real Queen's Fairy Tales
She is almost a fairy creature by birth, for she was born a Princess, in a romantic castle on the Rhine, just four days after Christmas. In the same castle her ancestors had lived for nearly a thousand years. They were the heroic Princes of Wied, famous alike in scholarship, war, and religion. Surrounding the castle on three sides was a great forest, and as the Princess grew to girl hood it was her chief delight to roam about under the giant trees, accompanied only by two large Danish dogs.
