Fun Fact

The fairy tale Cinderella was a German folk tale that became popular in the 19th century in Germany, well before Walt Disney!

Description

The fairy tale Cinderella tells of a neglected servant girl who, aided by a fairy godmother, attends a ball and falls in love with a prince. The prince finds his true love by fitting a glass slipper on her foot. Eugen Neureuther made this elaborate etching depicting several scenes from the story during a revival of interest in folk tales in Germany in the early 19th century.
