Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm were brothers. They were born in Germany in the 1780s. While they were at university, they became interested in old stories. They asked people to tell them stories and wrote them down. By 1812 they had collected more than two hundred stories. These stories have been retold in many books, plays and films.
