    3535  Egle is the main character of Lithuanian popular fairy-tale and a poem by Lithuanian poetess Salomeja Neris. Egle was a wife of Zilvinas, the King of Grass-snakes (grass-snake (Zaltys) in Lithuania was a deity and a symbol of fertility; they were kept at home as pets). They lived far from Egle’s home, in a kingdom on the bottom of a sea. Egle became a victim of her own family’s treason and cruelty: her family refused to let Egle back during her visit at home. Her brothers learnt from Egle’s daughter a password to call Zilvinas, and killed him. After that Egle turned her three sons and a daughter into trees and became a fir-tree herself, grieving about her husband on the seaside.
