About the Author

Jakob Ludwig Karl Grimm (1785–1863) and Wilhelm Karl Grimm (1786–1859) were born in Hanau, Germany. The brothers studied law at the University of Marburg, but it was their eventual work in folklore and linguistics that would make the brothers famous for centuries to come. In the early 1810s, the brothers collected their first folktales and completed them in written form. By 1818, they had published two volumes of German legends, or Deutsche Sagen, as well as a study in the history of German literature, Altdeutsche Wälder. In 1830, the brothers joined the University of Göttingen, where Jakob was a professor of linguistics and Wilhelm was an assistant librarian, before taking on professorships in Berlin, where they lived out the remainder of their lives. Today, the Brothers Grimm are synonymous with some of the world’s most renowned fairy tales, including “Cinderella,” “Rapunzel,” and more.
