Snow White 白雪公主


w.i.p


Snow White / 白雪公主 / Schneewittchen

In their first edition, the  Brothers Grimm  published the version they had first collected, 
in which the villain of the piece is Snow White's jealous mother
In a version sent to another folklorist prior to the first edition, additionally, 
she does not order a servant to take her to the woods, 
but takes her there herself to gather flowers and abandons her; in the first edition, 
this task was transferred to a servant. 
It is believed that the change to a stepmother in later editions 
was to tone down the story for children.
