The Royal Peasant

A myth submitted to the site by Michaela Ivanova & Mihail Fenerov

Burgas, Bulgaria

Centuries ago, there was a kingdom known for its beautiful land and its mighty king but the kingdom as endangered by the wars and many times it was under a siege. The king had a newborn son who would inherit the golden throne in the future but the boy’s mother was worried about the safety of her child so she decided to leave the kingdom with him.

Many years has passed and the young boy grew to be one brave and strong hunter living a peasant life with his old mother in a village not far away from the kingdom.
In search of a solution to the many wars lead the king has organized tournament for young hunters with a prize including many gold bars and the winner automatically becomes a soldier in the kingdom’s army. But one does not simply participate willingly but is chosen by the king himself. He visits every village and picks the ones who look strong and brave enough and think are able to free the kingdom in every way.

So when he reached his son’s village and tested all the young men he was astonished and amazed by the qualities of one boy. Since then faith has worked its magic, the kings rightful son won the tournament, became rich and freed its kingdom from wars and slavery.

After all those glorious times there came darkness. The woman who was once queen became seriously ill. On her deathbed she decided to tell the truth about her son’s descent.

Soon after his mother’s death the young man, the soldier of the king’s army, revealed his true identity to his father. The reunion was celebrated and the boy was put to his rightful position of being a ruler of a mighty kingdom.

The moral is: “ You can hide, but no matter how far, you can’t run away from faith. Destiny will find you anywhere.”
