The “Gronnskjegg” is a popular story that was collected across Norway. In the story, a young woman married an unknown man with a green beard. Upon returning home, she discovered that her new husband had eaten corpses from the local church graveyard.

Later, he appeared to her in the form of different relatives and questioned her. When he appeared in the form of her mother, she told all that she knew of him, and he killed her.
