Then a ray of sunlight shines on pile of gold. The Rhinemaidens tell Alberich that if someone should forswear all love, he would be able to forge an all-powerful ring of the Rhinegold. They tell this to Alberich because they think he would never forswear love, as he was so lustily chasing them. But they are wrong: Mad with despair, Alberich forswears and curses all love and he steals the Rhinegold and flees before the shocked Rhinemaidens can take any action.
The Stolen Gold?
It seems like the Germans also have lost their gold in real life also. Nevertheless, they work restlessly to get their Rhingold back from the Americans, which seem to have spent the hoard. The Americans seem to have forsworn trust and chosen to keep the Rhinmaidens gold.
