  • Overcome by desire, the once noble knight rapes a poor young maiden.
  • Angry the knight would do something so evil, the Queen gave him two choices: Find what women most desire or die.
  • So for a year and a day, the knight set out to find an answer. He traveled all around asking husbands what their wives want most. But alas, the knight couldn't find what he sought.
  • Unsure of what he was going to present, the knight headed back to the castle. On his way, he ran into an ugly old women who would tell him the correct answer, only if he promised to do the next thing she asked of him.
  • "Women desire sovereignty above their husbands!" The knight was then free, until the old lady asked him a favor, "take me as your wife!"
  • Their first night as husband and wife, the knight wouldn't go near the old women. "Have I done anything wrong, husband?"  YOU'RE SO UGLY! "Would you rather me be ugly but loyal, or beautiful but the reason your friends come to visit?" WHATEVER YOU WISH... Liking his answer, the women turned young and beautiful
