The goal of this research is to know how the folktale ?Keong Mas (Golden Snail)? is narrated based on Vladimir Propps Narratology and to know how this folktale actually represented a certain era in Indonesian history using the theory of New Historicism. Keong Mas is one of popular folktales in Indonesia which is narrated in such a special way that includes the elements of folktale such as the characterization, setting, plot, theme and style. Since the caracters are about to use the name of Prince and Princess in the Dynasty of Jenggala and Panjalu in Kediri, east Java in the 11th century, this folktale is hoped to describe the historical events through its setting and plot.
