The aerie faery Swan Maiden

This beautiful lady was chosen by Aengus, the God of Romance, for a bride.

He dreamt about her, swooned and mooned... and finally passed the test of picking her out from amongst the huge flock of swans amongst which she mingled in her swan maiden outfit.

Aengus was then granted permission by her father to feather his nest by marrying her.
