This story, like many others, begins in a country far far away from here. This story however, is unlike any you have heard or seen before. It all begins when a King marries a Wicked Queen who does not like any child. The King has seven children with one being Princess Elise and the others six Princes. On their wedding day, the Wicked Queen decides to sell Elise as a slave to a peasant man and woman. Elise's loyal brother's try to attempt to free her however are unsuccessful.
As the brother's approach their Father about Elise's abduction, the Wicked Queen turns the King against his children by manipulating their word against hers. In the Prince's attempt to find out what the Wicked Queen has done with their sister, they are turned to six white swans and forced to leave the palace.
After eight years, Elise is returned as a fifteen year old girl that the story begins to get interesting. As the Wicked Queen becomes extremely jealous of Elise's beauty, she tries to use her evil magic to make her beauty disappear. When these spells do not work, the Wicked Queen rubs mud all over Elise's face and entangles her hair so that the King will not recognise her. When Elise runs into her Father he does not believe it is her as he thinks Elise is dead. The King then calls for the guards to take her away, but she escapes into the dark forest where her journey in finding her beloved brother's begins.
