The following tales are
similar to the Frog King fairy tale, AT-333. I have included the English
language tales of this type which have been gathered by title by D. L.
Ashliman in his A
Guide to Folktales in the English Language. Sometimes
I include tales of other classifications when I deem them relevant to
the theme. The tales come from many cultures and are similar to the Frog King
story in various ways. I have placed the tales in alphabetical order with
bibliographic information and links to texts of the stories if a text
is available on the internet.
The tale of The Queen Who Sought A Drink From A Certain Well comes from Scotland.
This tale is AT-440.
