The Swan Spirit Animal in Folklore
The swan appears often in folklore and fairy tales, as it is one of the most powerful and oldest animal totems. One common story tells of young maidens who would turn into swans after putting on a magic coat of swans skin. However if someone were to discover this coat of swans skin, the maiden would have to either marry the person who found it or do his or her bidding. Tales such as these have come to associate the swan with the fairy realms and magic.
In ancient Greece, it was believed that the swan would sing its most beautiful song just before it died. This has led to the tale of the Swan Song.
