SHE PUT HER GOOD STEED TO THE WALLS AND LEAPT LIGHTLY OVER THEM from the story HOW STAVR THE NOBLE WAS SAVED BY A WOMAN’S WILES in The Russian Story Book collated and retold by Richard Wilson, illustrated by Frank C. Papé.

The story goes thus – Stavr the Noble lived in Chernigof, and when the daughter of Prince Vladimir was honoured at her father’s feast he was among the guests. Despite all his riches and wealth he counted one treasure above all else – his wife Vasilissa.

The table of Prince Validmir was silent at the end of Stavr’s speech until someone said:

“Prince Vladimir, Fair Sun of Kiev, it is not meet to permit this boaster to flout us all. Let him be cast into a cold, dark dungeon, and then let his young wife Vasilissa buy all Kiev town in one market and sell it in the next, let her by her wiles deceive us all, and let her, if she can, drive even Prince Vladimir out of his mind.”

And so the challenge was laid and Lord Stavr was cast into a prison for his wife Vasilissa to rescue by using her wiles.
