Once upon a time there was a King who had a beautiful and kind daughter.
The King loved his daughter but he realized that it was time for her to get married.
So she had a nice party on the 1st of March. Many young men came to the Kings palace. They brought a lot of gifts but the Kings daughter sent them all away.
Before midnight a young man arrived at the palace. As he was very poor he could only bring her a Martisor and a blossom from a tree.
The Kings daughter was so moved by his gift that she decided to marry him.
She then decided that from that day on everybody in her Kingdome had to celebrate theMartisor.
