Hans Christian Andersen

Hans Christian Andersen was a celebrated Danish author, who is perhaps best remembered for his fairy tales. Some of his most famous works include "The Princess and the Pea," "Thumbelina," "The Little Mermaid," and "The Emperor's New Clothes." Andersen's legacy is expansive; his works have been published in 125 languages, adapted into popular films, and laid the groundwork for stories like Kenneth Grahame's "Wind in the Willows" and A.A. Milne's "Winnie the Pooh."

if you mean The Princess and the Pea, it was written in 1835
  It is one of Hans Christian Anderson's stories, however most of his stories were folk tales from the Scandianvian oral tradition, so the story is probably much older than that.
Yes, but it sucked my mom went to it like 15 years ago "Cats" is much better.
I am not aware the author had any physical handicap. He may have worn specs, but so do many men of the pen.
I know he spent some time in Dickens's home, so he must have spoken English or French - which was then universally spoken by all intellectuals.
In Hans Christian Andersen's story, 'The Emperor's New Clothes', a couple of swindlers promise the emperor that they can stitch him a magical set of clothes, which are invisible to those who are unfit for their position, or stupid.
The story suggests that the Emperor was concerned with his image, and feared he might be seen as less than great and capable. In this case, his tailors created the fiction that their most exquisite clothes could not be seen by those who were unworthy (the incompetent or the unfit). His courtiers and...
The theme? Or the underlying message? The theme is family, friends and good against bad. Underlying message: You shouldn't judge people by anything except their personalities.
because he always loved fairy tales when he was a kid And also, the little mermaid was based on the unrequited love he had for another man who married a woman.

Inside the story, the main setting is inside a kingdom. In order the other settings are: 1) Front hall of the Palace 2)Bedroom -where the princess sleeps- 3)Hall -where they have breakfast in the morning and she tells them how horrible she slept- I hope this helps for whatever you need!
Hans Christian Andersen was 70 years old when he actually died, but the cause of death was actually gained falling out of bed three years earlier.
Look before you leap. Sometimes innocent children can see things more clearly than adults. Don't believe everything you're told by those who seek gain. Don't assume others are right simply because you perceive their status to be higher than yours. Those unifluenced by either marketing or status...
no because he did not have the time
Verifying the girls royalty.
If you had read this story as you were supposed to do for your homework, you would know that the queen places a pea beneath a huge stack of mattresses where the princess is going to sleep. You have to read the assignment to see why she does this and what happens afterwards.
He fell out of his bed and injured himself severely at age 70. He never fully recovered
I think the moral of the story is when you are an honest good person and you be yourself people will realize you for your true character.
The boy fairy in Thumbelina is Prince Cornelius.
  == Answer ==   The 20 matresses were stacked on top of one another with a single pea under them all to see if the body of the maiden would bruse. If it did bruse, she was truly a princess.

Yes. It seems that there is an ancient one from India or China. Many stories like this one come down from two or three sources of the Middle East, India, or China. They are carried on trade routes as oral stories ( very much like the tale of Robin Hood) and as they move with time and people they...
She was a tiny girl no bigger than a thumb, who was born inside a  flower. Eventually, she finds love with the king of the flower  spirits.
One thing this lesson teaches is .... don't sweat the small stuff!

Here's my guess: the story tells us that we should look at people's hearts, not their appearance. And that it doesn't matter what others think of you, as long as you set a good goal for yourself. The duckling wished to be as beautiful as a swan, but what he didn't know was that he already had it in...
There was no real hero.

True, he did! He stayed with Charles Dickens for a month.
False. He was born in Odense, Denmark and as far any we know, he never met the Brothers Grimm
They were "Invisible." It was said that only idiots could not see the fabric, so everyone lied and said they could see it. This resulted of the king parading naked down the streets.
Yes, a very good story!
No it is written by the Brothers Grimm :) it's a German fairy tale, not a swedish one!
ThumbelinaBased from the 1994 film, A Hans Christian Andersen Fairy Tale. Once upon a time, there was a widow that longed for a child to call her own. One day, she went to a fairy and told her that she wanted a child of her own. So the fairy put a flower seed in the widow's hand and told her to...

No. The female lead in the movie Hans Christian Andersen was played by ballerina Zizi Jeanmaire. In the movie, it is Jeanmaire who sings the duet "No Two People" with Danny Kaye. On the record album, which is not a soundtrack album in the literal sense but a rerecording of songs from the movie, the...

According to Wikipedia, it was during 1835 that Andersen published the first installment of his immortal Fairy Tales. He wrote more stories completing the first volume, which were published in 1836 and 1837. The collection consists of nine tales that includes The Tinderbox, The Princess and the Pea,...
He was told his new clothes looked great but he was actually naked.
But he would not admit that he was unwise, so he pretended that he could see the wondrous cloth.

It is about a girl that was so delicate that even a pea under a lot of stacked up mattresses would bruise her. The idea was that a *true* princess would be that delicate and be able to detect a pea under the mattress when sleeping on a huge stack of them.
First, the emperor is in his palace. At the end, he is walking outside naked.
possible chance they have made tangled (aka) rapunzel so they hopefully will!

The respect that the people give to the royals..
No, Anderson did not win a Newbery Medal. One of the criteria is that you have to be an American author, or live in America. And the award did not start until 1922.
The original story was first published in 1835, and is in the public domain. There have been hundreds of adaptations which would have their own copyrights.
he probably ate bread and butter often, being as poor as he was. though he may have eaten sausage alot, after all, he did live in Copenhagen.
No, definitely not. Come on, it was written in Denmark in the 1800s, one of the most ethnically homogenous places I can think of. Don't mix ethnicity into everything.. And by the way, it's also not about Diana :)
Actually, Hans Christian Andersen didn't have any children nor did he get married. The women he loved died, rejected him, or only treated him as a brother/friend. Does that help you?
Thumbelina is a character in a story created by Hans Christan Andersen. She is a fairy-tale character who is very tiny.   There is also apparently a horse billed as "the world's smallest" and named Thumbelina. See the link below.

Princess and the Pea is a fairy tale about a Princess and an allergy or something to a pea in her bed- and a succession of decked mattresses... as far as I know it is only a fairy tale and not based on any real people- such as Anastasia or Princess Diana.
Hans Christian Andersen was born on April 2, 1805 and died on August 4, 1875. Hans Christian Andersen would have been 70 years old at the time of death or 210 years old today.
Hans Christian Andersen died on August 4, 1875 at the age of 70.
Thumbelina was published in 1835, while Tinker Bell from the play Peter Pan wasn't around until 1904...
The original story is in the public domain, but newer adaptations of it would have their own protection.
