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.

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.
