How Many Times Did Cinderella Lose Her Glass Slipper?

When Cinderella arrives at the Royal Ball, all the guests are immediately drawn to her beauty and mystery. But none of them more so than Prince Charming himself, who spent the entire evening dancing and talking with Cinderella. They were having so much fun that she completely forgot about the time and that she needed to leave the Ball before the stroke of 12. So when the clock was heard, Cinderella started panicking. She left in such a hurry that her glass shoe fell off her foot several times. But how many times? Was it:

  • 1. One.
  • 2. Two.
  • 3. Three.
  • 4. Four.

It was three times. But this turned out to be a stroke of good luck and a blessing in disguise. Because she lost her glass slipper, Prince Charming was ultimately able to find her. He had all the girls in the kingdom try out the shoe, and when Cinderella tried it on and it fit perfectly, he realized that she was the girl he fell in love with at the Royal Ball. They were soon wed and the story had a happy end.
