What exactly is the Mincing Princess about?

What exactly is the Mincing Princess about?

The Mincing Princess is a variation of the King Thrushbeard tale, Essentially, it’s a genre of fairy tale about a haughty or arrogant princess who embarrasses a suitor. She is brought low when he disguises himself as poor man and humiliates her through various means (subjecting her to poverty and starvation, destroying her property, forcing her to steal etc.). When he ultimately reveals himself as a wealthy nobleman, she is so grateful for an end to the abuse and poverty that she happily accepts him as her husband. It’s very similar to Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew in many ways. It’s also a very difficult story for modern readers to put into any sort of positive light without a great deal of finagling, due to the fact that it really is a straight-up revenge fantasy. A lovely palate cleanser for the type of tale is to follow it up with The Subtle Princess, in which a wicked prince gets some serious just desserts from a princess he hoped to treat this way.

Season 2: Ancestors

Tori watches eagerly
from the backstage. When the hosts question his girlfriend status, Vincent’s
“no comment” reply
doesn’t sit well with Tori. I love how her face goes from
hopeful to horrified in such a short amount of time. I wish Vincent had
answered “there was someone very special but now it’s over”…….
