a miller who wants to make himself seem important to the king claims that his beautiful daughter could spin straw into gold.
I have come for what I asked for.
The king is intrigued by this, and asks her to stay at the Castle. He locks her up and tells her that she must spin all the straw in the room into gold or she will die.
She'll never guess my name is Rumpelstiltskin.
When she is all alone, a small man appears and offers to help her, in exchange for her firstborn child if she became queen.
Your name is Rumpelstiltskin!
Curses! How did you find out?
She accepts, thinking the day would never come. When the king saw the gold, he makes her his wife. she has a child, and the small man appears again, looking for his reward.
The queen begs and pleads with the small man. The small man pities her, and gives her 3 days to find out his name. she tells him every name she knows, but to no avail. She sends out a messenger to find more names, and during his travels he finds the small man and hears him utter his name: Rumpelstiltskin.
The queen is overjoyed by this news. When the small man returns once again, she says his name. In anger, he stomps off, never to return again.
