The following tales are similar to the Swan Maidens fairy tale, AT-400*: The Swan Maiden and AT-400: The Quest for a Lost Bride. 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 Swan Maidens 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.
