* OlderThanTheyThink: The tale is inspired of the legend of Saint Dymphna of Geel, an Irish princess that her pagan father wished to marry. The fairy tale is a version of this story without its original DownerEnding: the christian Dymphna ran away, but when her father found her, she refused once again to marry him and he killed her.
