Once upon a time,
The good character in the story was the younger brother because how he was the only one who didn't let greed get in the way of his quest and returned to his mother with the Brocade.
Though there really wasn't an evil charcter in the story, I would say that the evil in the story is the greed of the two eldest brothers since they only cared about themselves when they earned the gold and not about their mother
Royalty or caStle
There wasn't really any royalty or a castle in this fairytale
The use of magic in this story is when the fairys copied the Brocade and how the stone horse became alive

3s or 7s
The classic motif of using 3 or 7 as a number or set of things in a story. Some threes and sevens in this story are the three brothers and the seven tasks that must be done in order to retrieve the brocade.
