The Characters of An Enchanted Forest

Sleeping Beauty
Sleeping Beauty's tale came from Giambattista Basile's "Sun, Moon, and Talia" formally known as Pentamerone 1636. This tale is thought to have influenced Charles Perrault's Sleeping Beauty. After Perrault, the Grimms Brothers wrote down "Briar Rose" for their own collection of tales. The Grimm's tale is the most well-known version, although Perrault's title is commonly used. This famous fairy tale ends when the handsome prince awakens the sleeping princess with a kiss.
