The Four Skillful Brothers Summary

Four brothers are sent away from home by their father to learn a trade. They return home and show their father the skills they have acquired. Their skills are put to the test when a king's daughter is kidnapped. The king promises to allow the one who saves the girl to marry her. Working together, the four brothers rescue her. The king cannot decide which one actually saved the princess, so instead of choosing one to marry his daughter, he instead gives each brother half a kingdom.
