Stories of Siegfried Told to the Children
by Mary Macgregor
Siegfried is the central character in this legend, skillfully adapted from the Nibelung, an old German poem, full of strange adventures of tiny dwarves and stalwart mortals. In this retelling of the ancient legend, Siegfried wins the accursed Rhineland treasure, takes Kriemhild as bride, and comes to an untimely end, passing the curse of the Rhinegold on to his enemies.  Ages 8-10

About This Text

This text was prepared by Miriam Domermuth, using as copytext, Stories of Siegfried Told to the Children, by Mary Macgregor, London: T. C. & E. C. Jack.

Although there is no date of publication in the book itself, it was definitely published earlier than 1922 since it is included, almost in its entirety, in Myths and Legendary Heroes, Volume Two of The Young Folks Treasury, edited by Hamilton Wright Mabie, Edward Everett Hale, and William Byron Forbush, New York: The University Society, 1921.

Since this book was first published before 1923, it is in the public domain in the United States. By U.S. law, it entered the public domain 75 years after its first publication.

Several color illustrations, by Granville Fell, are included in the text.
