This tale is a GenderFlip of a common plot of ChivalricRomance, the Man Tested by Fate, who, having been given a similar decision, made the same choice. Also, a few tales have a married couple being given the same choice - the rest of the story normally has them split up for a decade or two. Another variant, recorded by Italo Calvino, doesn't have the choice part - it's about a princess who merely gave bad luck to both herself and whatever house she entered. The problem is finally solved by giving the girl's Fate a literal [[TheMakeover makeover]].

One day, the young king was to marry, but a hank of thread was needed to sew his wedding garment -- no thread in the kingdom had the proper color. It was just the color of the thread that Cathrine's Fate had given her, and the king declared she would be rewarded with an equal weight in gold.
