Briar Rose

Real Name

Briar Rose

First Appearance

Little Briar Rose (1812)

Created by

The Brothers Grimm


The version of the "Sleeping Beauty" story collected by the Brothers Grimm in 1812 was an orally transmitted version of the literary tale published by Charles Perrault in 1697 (itself an adaptation of Giambattista Basile's story of Talia from 1634).

The Brothers Grimm's version ends when the prince arrives to wake Briar Rose, unlike the stories of Basile and Perrault.


  • Disney's version named her "Princess Aurora" however, she is also called "Briar Rose" in her childhood while being raised by the good fairies.
