It is said that a long time ago, so long that it’s lost in the mist of time, that land was ruled by a very wealthy king. He was so rich, that his wealth and goods could not fit into his castle. Those possessions were craved by The Devil, who roamed those lands, so the king decided to safeguard his goods. He sent his subjects to find an appropriate place.
They set off to wander the kingdom far and wide and at last, he was drawn towards a mountain with impressive, high rocks stuck one to the other.
Throughout this time, however, the Devil, hidden in the shadows of the forest, was following the king’s men and the king’s carts full of gold and silver crossing the lands in search for the perfect hiding place. He left them bury the treasure, thinking that the perfect time to strike was after they had buried the precious possessions. And so, the soldiers found a perfect place in the heart of the mountain and hid the treasures. The queen arrived with a handful of her trusted guard to see the work done. As she was about to return, the Devil came out of the shadows, killed the king’s men and the queen’s guard and kidnapped the queen.
The entry to the heart of the mountain, where the treasures had been buried, was now completely sealed with rocks.
The Devil grew angry and decided to force himself an entry with lightning. He started a terrible storm and hit the rocks at the entry of the cave with it, but this did not create a path. Instead, the rocks came crushing down on the Devil and the queen, killing them both and forever sealing the entry to the cave.
Overtaken with grief, the king decided that the place where the queen died be forever known as The Lady’s Rocks, in the loving memory of his beautiful queen.
