Long Description:

The story begins when Nordic king Erik orders his daughter Kristin, who has rejected all suitors, to marry Danish Prince Fredrik before her 18th birthday, as legend holds she must otherwise be given to the "Mountain King" of trolls.

The haughty Prince Fredrik sets out with his bodyguards, but faces unexpected competition from three peasant brothers.
