A wealthy man with an unfortunately blue beard takes a wife. When he must leave for a business trip he leaves her in possession of a ring of keys. With the strict instructions that she is NOT to use one of them to open a certain cupboard in the house.
What happens when she gives in to her curiosity is recounted in this tale from Charles Perrault.
