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.
