It would be an overstatement to say that everyone is familiar with the stories of Jacob Ludwig Karl Grimm (1785–1863) and Wilhelm Carl Grimm (1786–1859). In addition to collecting German and European folk tales that embody authentic, pure German spirit, they were also among the first and best known of their kind. Cinderella is one of their most popularized tales. As well as participating in liberal politics, both brothers also promoted freedom of the press. Their sincere efforts were aimed at uprooting French rule over their culture as a threat.
