The Brothers Grimm gather old tales for their books

4 January marks the anniversary of the birth of Jacob Ludwig Karl Grimm, philologist and folklorist, in 1785. Jocob, the elder of the two Brothers Grimm, studied language and how sounds in words change over time. With his brother, Wilhelm, he wrote a German dictionary, but today they are remembered for their collections of European folk tales, which include the stories of Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel and Rumpelstiltskin amongst many others.
