A king and his beautiful queen awoke on their wedding day to find, `You will never have children together` written on their bed.
The king was saddened when he read this, but the Queen was inconsolable.
She took to walking in the woods alone, grieving over her fate never to produce an heir to the throne. One day she was out walking, lost in dark thoughts, when she met an old woman who was wearing a red shirt and a blue jacket.
“What troubles you, My Queen?” asked the old woman.
The Queen looked up and said, “There’s no point telling you. There’s nothing you can do to help me.”
