Version of Bro Grimm   True story

The Queen was sitting stitching in a window with a frame from black ebony at a beautiful winter day. When she stung in her finger three drops of blood fell into the snow. When she saw it she thought: "I wish I had a child as white as snow,as red as blood and as black as ebony!" Her desire became true. She got a daughter with a fairish skin, red cheeks and black hair. The child was named Snow White. Unfortunately the Queen died shortly after the birth. 
The King now had to marriage again, because the kingdom needed a Queen. He choosed a very beautiful woman, because the people liked to have a beautiful Queen. 
The Queen was very vain. She didn't like Snow White because she was not her own child. Nevertheless Snow White was always kindly to everybody and helpful. 
Despite her endeavour, she coudn't allure the heart of the Queen. 
The Queen payd great attention to her beautyousness. 
She had an omnisciently mirror. Because for her it was most important to have the certainty, to be the most beautiful woman in the kingdom, she asked the mirror every morning: "Mirror mirror at the wall, who  is most beautiful in the kingdom?" And the mirror answered every day: "You, Queen, are the most beautiful woman in the kingdom!" Then she was pleased and her vanity was satisfied. But she became even more vain and evil.  
Snow White was growing up and became more and more beautiful. When the Queen one morning asked her mirror again, the answer was different: "You are the most beautiful woman here, but Snow White is a thousand times more beautiful than you." 
The Queen became very angry.  She wanted Snow White to be dead unconditionally because she   was full of envy due to her vanity. So she called a hunter who was familiar with her as well as with Snow White. He asked her: "What is your desire, Queen?" And she answered: "What I mostly  desire is the heart of Snow White!" Now the hunter became sad and went imto the wood  with Snow White. But he couldn't kill her, and so he brought a heart of a wild boar to the Queen. But Snow White ran away. 
She ran over seven hills until she came to a cottage. She stepped in and found seven plates on a table with seven cups, something to eat and seven small beds. She was very exhausted, and so she ate and drank and laid to bed to sleep. 
But seven dwarfs lived in the cottage who used to work in a mine. When they came home from work they frightened asked : "Who ate from my plate?" And the next: "Who drank out of my cup?" And finally: "Who is sleeping in my bed?" But when they saw, what a beautiful girl had crept in, they had mercy and let her sleep. 
When Snow White was awake she told the dwarfs the whole story and from her evil stepmother who dried to kill her. 
They now decided to protect her and that she could live with them. They told her to not go out of the cottage and to not let in anybody. 
The Prince from the neighbor kingdom was looking for a wife. He was roaming through the countries in order to find the most beautiful girl. Also his people payd great attention to have a notably beautiful queen. 
Snow Whites stepmother asked the mirror again: "Mirror mirror at the wall, who  is most beautiful in the kingdom?" The mirror answered: "You, Queen, are the most beautiful woman here, but Snow White behind the seven hills living with the seven dwarfs is a thousand times more beautiful than you!" 
The Queen became very angry and decided to kill Snow White herself. 
She dressed as a trader and went to the cottage of the dwarfs. The dwarfs were not at home, just Snow White. The Queen showed a beautiful belt through the window. Snow White wanted to have it unconditionally and left the cottage against the order of the dwarfs. 
When she put on the belt, it choked her until she unconscious broke down.  Fortunately the dwarfs came home soon and rescued Snow White. 
When the Queen learned from the mirror that Snow White is still alive, she went again to the cottage and sold a beautiful comb. It was venomed. But again the dwarfs saved her. 
The third time she had an apple with one half venomed. Because Snow White had become more careful, she asked the trader to bite from the apple herself. She did, of course into the half without poison. But Snow White ate also from the apple and fell down. This time the dwarfs were unable to reanimate her. 
They laid her into a coffin from glass and were roaming sad through the country. They met the Prince from the neighbor kingdom. When he saw the beautiful girl he ordered to open the coffin. During the opening the coffin fell to the ground. At this moment the piece of the apple jumped out of the throat. The piece has made Snow White unconscious. It fell out of the mouth and she woke up. 
Soon a pretty wedding took place. Also the evil Queen was invited. Because she was curious, who the young queen might be, from whom the mirror had reported her, she participated.  
As a punishment for her evil deeds, she had to dance in glowing iron shoes until she dead broke down. 

 



















The Queen was sitting stitching in a window with a frame from black ebony at a beautiful winter day. When she stung in her finger three drops of blood fell into the snow. When she saw it she thought: "I wish I had a child as white as snow,as red as blood and as black as ebony!" Her desire became true. She got a daughter with a fairish skin, red cheeks and black hair. The child was named Snow White. Unfortunately the Queen died shortly after the birth. 
The King now had to marriage again, because the kingdom needed a Queen. He choosed a very beautiful woman, because the people liked  to have a beautiful Queen. 
She was self-confident but served the King with her whole heart. Snow White was beloved by her like an own child, because she didn't have one. But the King was always busy with ruling and didn't take care of his daughter. 
Also he was looking for a girl for the Prince of the neighbor kingdom because yonder Prince had promised a big amount of gold for the most beautiful girl. Hitherto no girl was beautiful enough for the Prince. 
The Queen had an omnisciently mirror. In order to find the most beautiful girl for the neighbor Prince for getting the promised gold for the King she asked the mirror every morning:  "Mirror mirror at the wall, who  is most beautiful in the kingdom?" And the mirror answered every day: "You, Queen, are the most beautiful woman in the kingdom!" But for the Prince it had to be an even more beautiful one. 
Snow White was growing up and became more and more beautiful. When the Queen one morning asked her mirror again, the answer was different: "You are the most beautiful woman here, but Snow White is a thousand times more beautiful than you." 
The King heard about it and wanted to sell his daughter to the Prince. But the Queen didn't know, if she could allow this even if Snow White wouldn't want to.  So she called a hunter who was familiar with her as well as with Snow White. He asked her: "What is your desire, Queen?" And she answered: "What I mostly  desire is the heart of Snow White!" The hunter now told Snow White of the plan. 
But Snow White didn't want to marry the Prince in any case, because he was anterior and she ran away. 
She ran over seven hills until she came to a cottage. She stepped in and found seven plates on a table with seven cups, something to eat and seven small beds. She was very exhausted, and so she ate and drank and laid to bed to sleep. 
But seven dwarfs lived in the cottage who used to work in a mine. When they came home from work they frightened asked : "Who ate from my plate?" And the next: "Who drank out of my cup?" And finally: "Who is sleeping in my bed?"  But when they saw, what a beautiful girl had crept in, they shortly thought about it and let her sleep. 
When Snow White was awake she was asked by the dwarfs and they learned hat she was the daughter of the king. 
Of course they knew that they could get a lot of gold in return for her. They told her to not go out of the cottage and to not let in anybody. 
They notified the Prince, who already had heard from the beauteousness of Snow White. Because the dwarfs knew from Snow White, that she never wanted to marry the Prince, she had to be in a deep sleep during the handover. 
Snow Whites stepmother asked the mirror again: "Mirror mirror at the wall, who  is most beautiful in the kingdom?" The mirror answered: "You, Queen, are the most beautiful woman here, but Snow White behind the seven hills living with the seven dwarfs is a thousand times more beautiful than you!" 
Now the queen knew that Snow White was alive and she had to protect her. 
She dressed as a trader and went to the cottage of the dwarfs. The dwarfs were not at home, just Snow White. The Queen showed a beautiful belt through the window. Snow White wanted to have it unconditionally and left the cottage against the order of the dwarfs. 
When the dwarfs came back they gave her a sleeping draught, because she had to sleep deeply for the handover to the Prince. But the belt let her throw up the sleeping draught. 
The dwarfs now thought about a sleep witchery. But the Queen learned from her mirror about it and sold a beautiful comb this time. The comb kept the witchery away from Snow White and again she couldn't be delivered. 
The Queen had been hoping, Snow White would get wise to the dwarfs and run away. 
Since this all didn't help, she decided to fetch Snow White home. Because Snow White wouldn't come voluntarily the Queen put a sleeping draught into a half of a beautiful apple. She sold the apple to Snow White, who felt in a deep sleep after biting it. The Queen laid Snow White onto her cart and was going to bring her home. Suddenly the dwarfs appeared, threated her and took Snow White. The Queen let them go and thought about, how to rescue Snow White from the dwarfs.   
But the dwarfs were thinking, Snow White would be dead. They laid her into a coffin from glass and met the Prince. He was very sad espacially when he saw, how beautiful she was and bought her for a little amount from the dwarfs. After the deal the coffin felt to the ground and Snow White woke up. The Prince was happy and the dwarfs wanted to have the gold now. But the Prince said, the deal is over. Now the dwarfs felt conned out of the gold because of the Queen and wanted revenge. 
Snow White now agreed to the marriage with the Prince, because the life in the castle suited her much better than in a cottage. 
When Snow Whites Stepmother appeared to the marriage, the dwarfs served disguised the guests. They commited revenge to her and let her dance in glowing iron shoes until she dead broke down.
