King Golden Hair

last year, 500 fairy tales were discovered in a German archive after being locked away for 150 years. many of these stories do not appear throughout the standard European collections. they were gathered by a German historian named Franz von Schonwerth, who died in 1886…around the same time the Brothers Grimm were making a household name for themselves with their often-gruesome bedtime stories. although the article was initially printed in The Guardian last year, it has gained a fair amount of attention as of recently.
