Princess Alwilda

The tale of Princess Alwilda is a legend, and it is not known if it is true.

Princess Alwilda was the daughter of a great King in Gotlund, Sweden. Her father wanted her to marry a prince, but she wasn't ready to marry and so she sneaked away to sea one day. She came to command a ship that were all women!

The king heard about his pirate daughter, and sent the prince to find her and bring her back to him. The Prince was very smart and was able to capture the Princess. She was surprised by the man's boldness, and decided to marry him after all!
