himself and no one else.

Once the key would touch the lock, it would be stained and it could never be cleaned again.

Princess Fairy Tale

The Queen

In the original tale of
Bluebeard, he marries a girl from the kingdom who had a sister and two brothers.

However, she never fell for him and rather thought of him as ugly and mean. She only marries him because of his belongings and richness. Of course, it did teach her quite a lesson.

The original fairy tale of Bluebeard was written by Charles Perreault and was often overlooked when fairy tales would be revisited. This retelling takes the heart of the story and reshapes it to give it a second breath.
