The Brothers Grimm, Jacob (1785-1863) and Wilhelm (1786-1859), who today are among the most popular and best-known storytellers of folk tales, were German linguists and cultural researchers who gathered and published their influential collections of legendary folklore during the 19th century.
Wilhelm Grimm (1786–1859), German author and cultural researcher, was one half of the Grimm Brothers; authors of some of the most popular and best-known European fairy tales. He was born in the town of Hanau, in what was at the time the Holy Roman Empire. He was a graduate of the University of Marburg.
