" The Marsh King's Daughter " is a literary fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen. The tale was first published  December 1858 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

An Egyptian princess falls into the evil power of the Marsh King. A child is born to her and is taken to be raised by a Viking woman. Beautiful but with a terrible character, Helga is transformed into a kind frog at night. When the girl becomes a young woman, she meets a Christian slave who preaches mercy and compassion. Changed by this encounter, Helga finds her true mother and travels with her back to Egypt. The story ends on a memorable note when Helga discovers herself in the future, and majestically changes into a swan. < An Egyptian princess falls into the evil power of the Marsh King.
