The contest by the King


A king offered half his kingdom or a 1000 kilos of gold or his daughter’s hand in marriage if any brave man could cross a river full of poisonous snakes and crocodiles.

No one voluntered but one young man jumped in to the river and crossed it without any difficulty.

The king asked:
“What do you want brave man, half of my kinddom?”

The man said: “No your majesty”

King: “Then the 1000 kilos of gold?”

Man: “No your majesty”

King: “Then my daughter’s hand in marriage?”

Man: “No your majesty”

King: “Then what is it that you want?”

Man: “The name of the person who pushed me in the river”.
