Grimm Tales: The Robber Bridegroom

In 1812, the Brothers Grimm published the first edition of Household and Children's Tales. 200 years later, these same tales, half remembered from our own childhood readings, still haunt the dark corners of our minds. To celebrate the 200th anniversary the book that evolved into Grimm's Fairy Tales, we proudly present one of the grimmest of those stories. As gruesome as this tale is, it was not removed from the final editions, perhaps for its value as a cautionary tale.
