About the Author

Jacob (4 January 1785 - 20 September 1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (24 February 1786 - 16 December 1859), were academics best known for publishing collections of folk tales and fairy tales, and together they wrote a German dictionary.

The brothers were two of the best-known story tellers of folk tales from Europe, and their work popularized such tales as "Rumpelstiltskin", "Snow White", "Rapunzel", "Cinderella", "Hansel and Gretel", and "The Frog Prince".

In their earlier years, the brothers lived an idyllic life out in the countryside of Westphalia. When the brothers were in their mid teens, their father died and they moved into a cramped residence in the city with their mother and 5 other siblings.

The brothers became well educated and were very interestsed in the field of
Linguistics. Their collections of fairy tales were actually a by-product of their linguistic research.

They publsihed their first book "Tales of Children in 1812." Many of these were tales they had collected while visiting with the peasants and villagers nearby.

Wilhelm was married in 1825, while Jacob remained a bachelor. The brothers were very close and remained living under one roof even after Wilhelm's marriage.

Wilhelm died in 1859, followed by Jacob four years later. Both brothers are buried in Schöneberg, Berlin.
