Listening to the gay music coming from the palace, the little Mermaid started dancing merrily. Seeing her beautiful dance, the guard allowed her inside the palace. mermaid10

He was the prince of the kingdom. Beside him, sat the beautiful princess with lovely hair. He said that the Little Mermaid danced wonderfully, without knowing that it was she who rescued him.
Then came an announcement from the King. Thinking that girl who sat beside him rescued him; he declared that he would be marrying her. That announcement left the princess in tears. She ran out of the palace and reached the edge of the sea. mermaid12

Sad about what happened to her, she entered the sea again to live beneath the sea for the rest of her life.

It is believed that the said Little Mermaid still visits the place where she first saw the handsome young price.
