In 1607 Charles Perraul published the fairy tale classic Sleeping Beauty.
In 1812 The Brothers Grimm included a variant, Briar Rose, in their collection. This version truncates the story as told by Perrault and the arrival of the prince concludes the tale.
The version of Sleeping Beauty that is most familiar in the English speaking world is the Walt Disney animated film of 1959. This version takes as much from the Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky ballet (Saint Petersburg, 1890) as it does from Perrault.
Royal Doulton began to produce their Sleeping Beauty Collection in 2004
