Rumpelstiltskin

The Story

is about a miller, who lies to the king, telling him that his daughter can spin straw into gold. The king calls for the girl, shuts her in a tower room filled with straw and a spinning wheel, and demands she spin the straw into gold by morning or he will cut off her head. (Adapted from wikipedia.org)
