The lesson that the king from the story, “Salt and Bread,” learned is right here in this paragraph. The lesson that he learned, is to listen to his heart, not to others. The king loved his youngest daughter so much that it made the two older sisters mad. So they came up with a plot to get the king mad at the youngest. They started to say that the youngest daughter didn’t love him as much. The king was invited to a wedding of the youngest daughter and the hunting king. The king was mad when he didn’t see the salt and bread. When he heard the queen said that she loved him as much as salt and bread, it is an important part of the meal. The king begged for forgiveness and the older sister’s plot against the youngest was revealed.
