The Princess Test is an updated take on the Hans Christian Anderson classic The Princess and the Pea. It talks about a prince who wanted to marry a real princess. Luck smiled upon him and sent the girl who claimed she was precisely that, right to his front door. She knocked at the door of the castle, all wet from the rain and lost. The queen presented to the princess one test that proved that the girl was a real princess. She has set a single pea, under dozens of mattresses and blankets, to check whether the princess will feel this.
This story tells us that there are always ways to verify a genuine nature of the people. In this story, the princess proves her sensitivity to discomfort, which can be developed only by those who are pampered their entire life, even if it’s only a pea under dozens of mattresses, blankets, and pillows.
Hans Christian Andersen wrote many famous children's fairy tales in the 1800s that are still prominent today, such as The Little Mermaid, Thumbilina, and The Ugly Duckling.
