We continue to mark "Kingdom 1000" with an extra medieval folk tale special to Epic Tales. King Edmund returns from battle with the most precious of treasures: a gold apple that promises good luck—but only if you give it away to the person you love the most. So who should he give it to...?
The story is read by Chip Colquhoun, who first adapted the tale from an East Anglian folk tale for his book Who Made England?
