He spends a miserable winter alone in the outdoors, mostly hiding in a cave on the lake that partly freezes over. When spring arrives, a flock of swans descends on the lake. The ugly duckling, now having fully grown and matured, is unable to endure a life of solitude and hardship any more and decides to throw himself at the flock of swans deciding that it is better to be killed by such beautiful birds than to live a life of ugliness and misery.
He is shocked when the swans welcome and accept him, only to realize by looking at his reflection in the water that he was in fact not a duckling, but a swan all this time.

The flock takes to the air, and the now beautiful swan spreads his gorgeous large wings and takes flight with the rest of his new kind family. Andersen first conceived the story in while enjoying the beauty of nature during his stay at the country estate of Bregentved, and lavished a year's worth of attention upon it. He later confessed that the story was "a reflection of my own life", and, when the critic Georg Brandes questioned Andersen about whether he would write his autobiography, the poet claimed that it had already been written — "The Ugly Duckling".
First Book. First Collection. Nye Eventyr. For the first time the phrase "told for children" was not part of the title—an omission Andersen scholar Jackie Wullschlager believes exhibited a new confidence on Andersen's part: "These [tales] were the most mature and perfectly constructed tales he had written, and though some of them at once became, and have remained, favorites of children, Andersen here melds together the childlike and the profound with exceptional artistry.
All the papers are praising it, everyone is reading it! No books of mine are appreciated in the way these fairy tales are!
The tale was republished 18 December in Fairy Tales. First Volume. Eventyr og Historier. The ugly duckling is the child of a swan whose egg accidentally rolled into a duck's nest. Speculation suggests that Andersen was the illegitimate son of Prince Christian Frederik later King Christian VIII of Denmark , and found this out some time before he wrote the book, and then that being a swan in the story was a metaphor not just for inner beauty and talent but also for secret royal lineage.
Bruno Bettelheim observes in The Uses of Enchantment that the Ugly Duckling is not confronted with the tasks, tests, or trials of the typical fairy tale hero. Things are simply fated and unfold accordingly, whether or not the hero takes some action. The tale was adapted to a variety of media. The first was produced in in black and white, and a remake in in Technicolor. The main difference between the Andersen story and the Disney version is that, in the latter, the little bird's ordeal lasts for only a few minutes, not for months.
In , the Fleischer brothers adapted the story for their animated short "The Little Stranger", reversing the story by having an odd chick born into a family of ducks. In the Soviet animation studio Soyuzmultfilm produced its own 19 minutes version of The Ugly Duckling. In , the Danish animation studio A.passlongtedi.tk

In , the Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev composed a work for voice and piano based on Nina Meshcherskaya's adaptation of the tale and, in , arranged the work for voice and orchestra. This was transcribed by Lev Konov in , and his opera was a great success in Russia.
