Seeking an english translation of an old Austrian fairytale about a girl who is taken into service at the Black Woman's Castle.
It reads much like Bluebeard.
I am looking for it because Maria Von Franz cites it.
Much appreciation!

The closest I can find is this version of the Grimm's "Marienkind", which is Aarne-Thompson type 710 and seems to have other variations in German.

Maybe "Mother Holle" (http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/grimm/ht11.htm) or "The Black Madonna"?

Wow! I'm terribly impressed and very grateful.
