Now the master believed himself safe for the third night, and lay down in his own bed.

终于到了第三晚,王子坚信他已经安全了,就自己躺在了床上。


Then came the princess herself, and she had put on a misty-grey mantle, and she seated herself near him.

但是这次公主她自己来了,她带着雾灰色的斗篷,靠近王子坐着坐到了王子的旁边


And when she thought that he was asleep and dreaming, she spoke to him, and hoped that he would answer in his sleep, as many do, but he was awake, and understood and heard everything quitewell.

当她以为他已经睡着并进入了梦乡时,她对他说,她希望他能够在他的梦里回答她(的问题)。然而,王子还醒着,并且很清楚地听到了她说的所有话。


Then she asked, "One slew none, what is that?"

“没有杀过1个,那是什么?”公主问。


He replied, "A raven, which ate of a dead and poisoned horse, and died of it."

“一只因吃了中毒的死马肉而死的乌鸦。”王子回答道。


She inquired further, "And yet slew twelve, what is that?"

“那么杀了12个,这是什么?”她再问。


He answered, "That means twelve murderers, who ate the raven and died of it."

“那说的是因吃了乌鸦肉而死的12个杀人犯。”他再答。


When she knew the answer to the riddle she wanted to steal away, but he held her mantle so fast that she was forced to leave it behind her.

当公主得知谜语的谜底后,她想溜走。但是王子很快地出手,抓住了她的斗篷,公主无奈只得扔下斗篷逃走。


Next morning, the King's daughter announced that she had guessed the riddle, and sent for the twelve judges and expounded it before them.

次日早上,公主宣布她已经猜出这个谜语的谜底了,并且已经把谜底交给了12个审判官,也已经(把答案)解释给他们了。


But the youth begged for a hearing, and said, "She stole into my room in the night and questioned me, otherwise she could not have discovered it."

年轻的王子恳求审判官听他解释:“公主她昨晚来到潜入我的卧室,提问了我(谜语的答案)。但是,公主她不知道我已经发现了她。”(否则,她不可能知道谜底。)


The judges said, "Bring us a proof of this."

审判官们说,“请拿出证据来(说明她昨晚去过你的卧室)。”


Then were the three mantles brought thither by the servant, and when the judges saw the misty-grey one which the King's daughter usually wore, they said, "Let the mantle be embroidered with gold and silver, and then it will be your wedding-mantle.

然后,王子的仆人搬来了三个斗篷。审判官们一下子就看到了那个雾灰色的斗篷是公主经常戴的那个。他们于是吩咐,“把这个斗篷拿去刺绣金线银线,它将作为你(公主)的婚礼斗篷。”
