Description A miller brags to the king that his daughter can spin straw into gold. She can not actually perform this feat so she employs a manikin to do the work for her. On the third day she has nothing to pay the manikin with so she promises her first child. The girl is married to the king and the two soon have a baby. The queen's sorrow at losing her baby makes him give her a chance to keep the child. He gives the queen three days to guess his name. A messenger discovers the man's name. When the queen correctly guesses the man's name the manikin becomes so angry that he stomps his foot into the ground and then pulls himself in half.
