King Lear and His Daughters

Once upon a time, there was a king in England. He had three daughters. One day, he made up his mind to divide his kingdom among them. So, he called them in the court and asked each of them how much they loved him. the king decided to give the largest bounty to the one who loved him most. The king asked for his daughters’ expression of love and affection for him. At first, Lear asked his eldest daughter, Goneril. Goneril declared that she loved him more than she could say. Being satisfied, he called for the map of his kingdom and drew his finger round one-third of it. Then the king asked his second daughter, Regan. Regan replied that her love for him would never end and change. Lear was very pleased and gave her another one-third of his kingdom. Then it was the turn of Cordelia, his youngest and most beloved daughter. With a great hope the king asked his dearest daughter but Cordelia spoke the truth. She did not flatter her father like her other sisters. At this, the king grew angry and he disinherited Cordelia and also banished her from his kingdom. Though both of them died later on, the king eventually realized that he had made a mistake in identifying the true daughter.
