The Children of Lir is a classic Irish version of the swan story: a king has four children, his wife dies, he remarries, his new wife is jealous and transforms the children into swans, animals befriend the children/swans, and eventually the spell is broken and the queen is forced to leave.
Legende irlandeze--The Children of Lir--Copii lui Lir.
[CELTIC] Aoife turns the children of Lir into swans with a druidic rod. "Long ago when the Tuatha De Danaan lived in Ireland there was a great King called Lir. He had four children: Fionnuala was the eldest and she was as beautiful as sunshine in blossomed branches; Aodh was like a young eagle in the blue of the sky; and his two brothers, Fiacra and Conn, were as beautiful as running water."
