The dwarfs, seeing that the prince was really in love, agreed. The Prince ordered the casket to be carried away by his attendants. Now the men carrying the casket stumbled, and jolted the casket. The piece of poisoned apple in Snow White's mouth fell out, and Snow White sighed, opened her eyes and sat up. The prince and the dwarfs were overjoyed, and soon it was agreed that the prince would marry Snow White.

A great wedding was arranged in which everyone from far and wide was invited. Snow White's stepmother was also invited. Just before she left for the wedding, dressed in her finest clothes, she stepped before the mirror and asked:

Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Who is the fairest of them all?

The mirror answered:

You were the fairest, lady Queen
The Prince's bride is more fair, I ween.

At this the Queen was furious, and left at once for the wedding to see for herself the bride who was so fair. Imagine her shock when she saw that the bride was Snow White!

Just then a pair of red hot iron shoes was brought and set down before her, and these she was forced to put on and to dance until she fell down dead.
