Examples from the Web for duende
The duende gave Mabait two or three isabels6 every day, and by the end of the month he had saved much money.
Mabait was married to the princess, was crowned king, and lived happily with his friend the duende.
Then he ordered his servants to find the duende and kill it.
After he was given permission to try, he said to the duende, “Who are you?”
But occasionally the Duende had the form of a little busy friar, like the Monachiello at Naples.Brownies and Bogles|Louise Imogen Guiney
