A sage (wise old man), presented a prince with a set of three small dolls. As you would have thought, the prince was not amused. “Am I a girl that you give me dolls?”, he asked.
“This is a gift for a future king,” said the sage. “If you look carefully, you’ll see a hole in the ear of each doll.” The sage handed him a piece of string. “Pass it through each doll.”, he said.
