According to the Polish legend "Złota kaczka", the Golden Duck dwells in the cellars beneath Warsaw's Ostrogski Castle. The creature, a princess who has been bewitched by an evil sorcerer, lives under the castle and waits for someone to set her free.
The Duck can be restored to human form only by a man who can spend 100 gold ducats a day for three consecutive days, without sharing any of this small fortune with anyone. The poor shoemaker's apprentice finds the Gold Duck under the Castle and is granted the ducats to spend, but is unable to spend them all in the allotted time. He gives the remainder to a beggar, who tells him that money does not bring happiness. The Gold Duck disappears, taking with it the treasures stored under the Castle, but from that day the boy is happy. He becomes a master shoemaker, finds himself a beautiful wife, and lives into old age, surrounded by happy friends and children.
This is just wonderful!
