Here is a classic tale by Han Christian Anderson. Elisa must first find her 11 brothers who have been turned into swans, then make them human again with her bravery, perseverance, and strong belief.

Like most fairy tales, there's a bit of weirdness in this one - most notably, the fact that the king just picked up a mute girl and married her. Like, did she consent to this? How could he know - she wasn't able to communicate with anybody! (If she had been able to, she would've been able to also let them know why she was so obsessed with nettles.)
