Abstract: The article begins with the telling of the Cinderella story in a Maltese context. Malta is one of the many countries where this type has been recorded. In fact the Cinderella story, which is distributed all over Europe and far beyond its boundaries was even known in Ancient Egypt. The Maltese versions belong to those areas, which according to Von Sydow's theory changed their original type and accepted the new form of the prince feast episode. The continuation of the article is the search for motifs in the Maltese version of the Cinderella story.
