The following tales are
similar to the Princess and the Pea fairy tale, ATU-704. 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 Princess and the Pea
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.
