who will marry the princess (Posted on 2004-02-13) Difficulty: 2 of 5
A wizard left each of his three sons a gift before he died. The oldest received a mirror, through which he could see anyone in the world. The second, a horse which could ride to any place in the world in one day. The third, a magic apple which would never rot, and when eaten would cure any disease.

One day the brothers heard about a princess in a faraway land who was dying of an unknown disease. Rumour had it the king would let the man who saved his daughter marry her. The brothers sprung into action. The first looked in his mirror and saw the ill princess and the land she lived in. All three jumped on the second brother's horse, and they rode so fast they got to the princess' land the next morning. Then the third son took his apple to the princess, who ate it and recovered full health instantly.

The king was grateful, and indeed intended to let one of them marry the princess. But it had taken the cooperation of all three brothers to save her. Which one did the king decide should marry his daughter?

i know that some people won't agree with me but i think that the answer is that the 3 brothers get into a fight, so the king finds another man 2 marry his daughter. this really pisses off the brothers, so they kill the king and daughter because they promised that the person who cures the princess will get married to the princess. then they kill the man who gets married to the princess. that's when they find out what they've done and they don't care, so they go to the police who arrest them and hang them! the end! that's the answer i came up with!
