1 Fairy Tale True/False Answers: The History of Fairy Tales

2 Fairy tales are not always about fairies, though they are always full of strange and wonderful happenings.

3 Question 1 The first known Fairy Tale is from Egypt around 1300 A.D. True or False?

4 False The first fairy tale was found written down on papyrus and is from Egypt around 1300 BC.

5 Question 2 Fairy tales are stories that were first written down then shared with others. True or False?

6 False Fairy tales have been told for thousands of years throughout all cultures and continents. They were first told orally and passed from one generation to the next.

7 Question 3 The term “fairy tale” comes from the French phrase “contes de fee.” True or False?

8 True The French writer Marie-Catherine Le Jumel de Barneville, or Madame d’Aulnoy, coined the phrase “contes de fee” which translates to “fairy tales” around 1697. Madame d’Aulnoy first translations were meant more for adults than children. These stories are more sinister, dark, and eerie than the Disney versions we know today.

9 Question 4 Sleeping Beauty was first told by Walt Disney.

10 False Charles Perrault (12 January 1628 – 16 May 1703) was a French author who collected and retold these stories and help create a new “genre” or type of literature: the Fairy Tale. His best known translations are Le Petit Chaperon rouge (Little Red Riding Hood), La Belle au bois dormant (Sleeping Beauty), Le Maître chat ou le Chat botté (Puss in Boots), and Cendrillon ou la petite pantoufle de verre (Cinderella).Little Red Riding HoodSleeping BeautyPuss in BootsCinderella

11 Question 5 The first authors of Fairy Tales were the Brother’s Grimm.

Their first collection of fairy tales for children is called Kinder- und Hausmarchen, known in English as Grimm’s Fairy Tales, a collection of over 200 tales taken mostly from oral sources.
