The Grimm brothers were early 19th-century writers best known for their fairy tales from Scandinavian, Icelandic and Germanic origins. By 1807 there was a growing interest in German folk tales. The Grimm brothers were academics who invited friends to their home and asked them to relate stories they had heard. They soon published their first collection of tales, and from there, several more volumes followed.
