The tale of Sleeping Beauty has two major versions: Charles Perrault’s Sleeping Beauty, and Little Briar Rose by the Brothers Grimm. Before these popular versions, the story has also been passed on through generations as an oral tale beginning as early as 1330. Both Perrault’s and the Brothers Grimm’s stories have a beautiful princess, an enchantment that causes sleep, and a prince.

Perrault’s version of Sleeping Beauty can be divided into two parts. The first part begins with the tragic christening and the curse of the uninvited fairy, and ends with the reawakened princess marrying the prince in a secret ceremony. The second part of this version takes a completely different turn when the prince takes the princess and their children to his kingdom and they encounter the prince’s Ogress Queen Mother. Other, older versions of the story also have a similarly gruesome plot, but the modern retellings try to omit the violent section of the tale.

Disney’s version of the story was popularized by the 1959 animated film Sleeping Beauty, which is now considered as one of the greatest animated films of all time.
