Author description

The Brothers Grimm were Jacob (1785-1863) and Wilhelm (1786-1859). The two were German academics, linguists, cultural researchers, and authors who are among the most well-known storytellers of folk tales, popularizing stories such as "Cinderella", "The Frog Prince", "Hansel and Gretel", "Rapunzel", "Rumpelstiltskin", and "Snow White". Their first collection of folk tales was published in 1812.
