The Story of the Seven Simeons

Once upon a time there were seven orphan brothers, all called Simeon. The Tsar felt sorry for them and ordered them to be taught whatever profession they desired. All the brothers studied well, except the youngest, who became a thief. The angry Tsar wanted to punish him, but the youngest brother offered to go to the distant kingdom and steal the beautiful Helen. The youngest Simeon lured Helen onto his ship and brought her back across the ocean to the Tsar. The Tsar married the beautiful Helen and the seven brothers were richly rewarded.
