Question

this is a riddle that has been in my family for, according to my great grandma, 6 generations. unless you guess correctly, you aren't told until you reach the age of 21. I guessed it correctly at 14, can you?

"Way down in a deep, dark, dungeon; all saddled, all bridled, alll ready to fight. I silks my bow, I hairs my fiddle, I told you my name three times in this riddle."

doesnt the original riddle go like this:

Down in a dark dungeon I saw a brave knight.

All saddled, all bridled, all fit for the fight.

Gilt was his saddle, and bent was his bow;

Thrice I've told you his name, and yet you don't

know.

that is an old nursery rhyme, indeed. at the moment I am at my grandma's and she said she has heard that before; I wonder why my great grandmother changed it? or how it came to be changed? because all of my family knows it in my form. I had never heard that before.

All?

the riddle is nearly exact unto mine - however, if you had read my original spoiler message of what it is NOT, it is NOT all, I, AI, IA, or any such variance. I put it in a spoiler so people could check it if they wished, or if they sought after it with their own insight without help.

btw, JustAddOcean, how did you come across that nursery rhyme? my friend google says nothing :P

the 1907 book Pinafore Palace: a book of rhymes for the nursery : )

but where did you get that? did you simply know the riddle beforehand? or did you go grab a book from the bookshelf haha. i'm just curious ;)

either way the answer is straightforward and obvious unto itself - you just need to rationalize it.

the answer has been said. if you wish to continue determining the answer, go ahead. for either versions, it is...

thrice, three times, etc.
