The real-life people behind 6 famous fairy tales by Gabbi Shaw

  • Fairy tales are stories that have been passed down through generations, many of which have inspired some of the most beloved movies of all time.
  • However, some of these magical stories might not have come out of nowhere — many have some relation to real historical figures and events.
  • Rapunzel’s story can be traced back to the tragic tale of Saint Barbara.
  • Visit Insider’s homepage for more stories.

You may think you know the story of Rapunzel, but did you know that she’s partly based on martyr Saint Barbara? Or that the Beast of “Beauty and the Beast” actually existed?

These six beloved fairy tales and nursery rhymes all have something in common: Their roots come from real people, places, and objects.

Keep scrolling to learn more about the facts behind your favorite fiction.

The story of “Beauty and the Beast” was probably based on the tragic life of Petrus Gonsalvus.

According to Refinery 29, in 1537 there was a young boy named Petrus Gonsalvus who was regularly called a beast. Reportedly, this was most likely because he had a case of hypertrichosis, a condition that causes a person to grow hair all over their body, often referred to as “werewolf syndrome.”

Gonsalvus was just 10 years old when he was taken from his native country, Spain, and sent to the King of France to operate as a type of court jester. “King Henry decided to take on Gonsalvus as his little pet project,” Refinery 29 wrote, “the king groomed Gonsalvus to be a nobleman.”

Eventually, King Henry’s wife, Catherine de’Medici (who took over after the king died), found Gonsalvus a wife — coincidentally another woman named Catherine. Though it took some getting used to, the beauty fell in love with “the beast.” They were married for 40 years and had seven kids together, four of which also had hypertrichosis.

There are theories that Snow White is based on one of two real women: Margaretha von Waldeck or Maria Sophia Margaretha Catherina von Erthal.

According to Mental Floss, von Waldeck lived in the German town of Waldeck (of course) during the mid-1500s. When she was 17, she left her father’s home, perhaps due to friction with her new stepmother, and moved to Brussels. There, she attracted the eye of Spain’s king, Philip II.

Soon thereafter she fell ill, and many believe she was poisoned, as the couple had their fair share of detractors who believed that marrying a coalminer’s daughter was beneath a king. Unfortunately, there was no true love’s kiss to cure her, and she died at 21.

The other potential inspiration? Deep breath: Maria Sophia Margaretha Catherina von Erthal. The young woman also lived in Germany, according to the Independent, in a town called Lohr am Main. Born in 1729, she was the daughter of Prince Philipp Christoph von Erthal, whom she lived in a castle with. Turns out, her father owned a mirror factory. In fact, the castle they lived in is now open to the public as a museum, and inside one of the rooms is a

FAIRY POWERS  by Jacob Rice

As supernatural beings, fairies have a variety of powers. It depends on the type of fairy. Each species has its own signature power and, some of them, may actually be magic. Fairies use their powers to help or harm humans, but they usually don’t use their powers on other Fae.

Common Fairy Powers

Fairies don’t use their powers on other Fae. We’re not sure why that is. However, they will readily use them on humans. We can only speculate that fairy powers don’t work on other Fae.

Here are some of the most common powers used by fairies:

Luck – This means good–or bad–fortune. You could win the lotto or lose your fortune in the stock market. We’d consider any luck to be a curse because there’s always a cost. Under most situations, the person enters into a contract of some kind or provides a service to the fairy. If you break the contract or you don’t deliver as promised, then you get bad luck.

Invisibility – Generally, most fairies are invisible to the mortal eye. Fairies can show themselves if they want, but mortal minds have a hard time understanding what they’ve just seen. Fairies also give magical items that can make a person invisible.

Glamour – Usually, bad fairies use this power. Glamour is an illusion. The bad fairy looks beautiful, when it’s truly an ugly creature. Once a human sees the fairy’s ugliness, he or she can never ‘not see’ it as anything other than ugly. In other words, once you know the fairy is bad and ugly, it can never hide that from you again.

Healing – Some fairies have the ability to heal people. How they do it depends on the fairy. Very few can use touch to heal. Most of them use an ointment or feed you some of its food.

Clairvoyance – A fairy can grant you the ability to see the future or see the hidden world of the fairies. This is a temporary gift and it will fade in time, or the fairy can revoke it.

Flight – Only a few fairies can fly and they usually don’t have wings. Usually, flight is used as a defensive tactic: If a fairy feels threatened, you can get pushed back by a freak wind gust or step into a vortex. That’s really a group of fairies flying around you.

Nimble – This power is better observed than described, but here it goes: Some fairies move so fast or have some much agility, they can dodge anything and never get hit.

Enhanced Senses – Most fairies have better eyesight, hearing, taste, touch and smell than humans. They can see at night with ease, hear better than dogs, better taste than a sommelier, interpret emotions on touch, and smell better than a bloodhound.

Illumination – Some fairies, like Will o’ the Wisps, bright elves and White Ladies, can generate

FAIRIES

The term fairy can be used to describe many types of magical creatures. Most people relate the word fairy to the more ethereal image, the classic fairy with wings and flowing hair. Fairies are human in appearance and they have magical powers, the origin of fairies is the point of much contention as no one can actually say where they originated from.

Fairies are capable of making themselves invisible sometimes, fairies actually fly on the back of birds and they are very in tune with the creatures of the sky. Fairies are very intelligent creatures and their fragility is deceptive, they are actually powerful magicians and very strong mentally and physically.

Children who have imaginary friends are actually talking to fairies, as fairies feel most comfortable with children and are often drawn to their laughter. Adults catch fairies
