In 1835 the famous Danish storyteller HC Andersen wrote a story that he named The Princess and the Pea (Prinsessen på ærten), and that sometimes is translated into The Real Princess. Regardless of whom the title is featuring the story itself is not directly about a princess, but first and foremost about a prince. It is about a prince who is looking to marry a real princess – and as such a typical example of how easy a princess, a woman, can be sidestepped and turned into an “other”, as Simone de Beauvoir put it in The Second Sex.
