However, in true QI fashion, I should point out that in fact she didn't. She merely divested herself of her jewellery and hair ornaments as a symbolic gesture; hence of course, why her hair tumbled down.


Mostly, this is QI to me and something I had not heard of before. (No doubt due to my ignorance rather than the fact it is not well known).

A quick search shows that this is one theory of the legend (the phrase "it has been suggested" pops up a lot) but I can't find anything which says that it is the accepted one, or where this idea originated. Can you, or anyone, point me in the right direction?

Thanks, mostly.

I shall find it and read with interest. That is, if it is worth the read?
