Gisela von Arnim was the youngest child of Achim and Bettina from Arnim.  She never received a formal education but read Romantic Poetry and fairy tales as a child.  Because of this, as an inspiration, she began to write her own fairy tales.  She married Herman Grimm, the son of Wilhelm Grimm in 1859.
