Legend of king Norin

King Norin was so ugly that he hid his appearance from the world and let no one see him. Being a freak with an odd face and hairy body, he ordered a barber to come once a week and take the hair off his body after which he would decapitate the barber.

King Norin was so ugly that he hid his appearance from the world and let no one see him. Being a freak with an odd face and hairy body, he ordered a barber to come once a week and take the hair off his body after which he would decapitate the barber. Great sadness engrossed the town which was robbed of young men. The last man was summoned by the king and his mother thought of making a loaf of bread and blessed it with her milk.

When the young man finished shaving the king, he wished to eat his last meal. Watching him eat with such enjoyment, Norin asked to be given a slice of bread to taste and having done so, he was thrilled. The young man said the bread had been made of mother’s milk and the king made a decision not to kill him as they were brothers now. He let him go provided he told nothing and if he desired to do so, he could only tell it to the dark earth and the hole he dug in it. As the hole was sited near water, sedge sprouted from it. A shepherd made a flute using this sedge and it poured out a melody of the song of the ugly King.
