The Miller is overprotective of his young daughter and refuses to let her help with any work; despite her rare beauty, she is helpless when it comes to the mundane chores of everyday life. In an attempt to defend his daughter’s uselessness, the Miller makes the mistake of falsely proclaiming that his daughter can spin straw into gold.
