The version collected by the Grimms was an orally transmitted version of the originally literary tale published by Charles Perrault in "Histoires ou contes du temps passé" in 1697. This in turn was based on Sun, Moon, and Talia by Giambattista Basile (published posthumously in 1634), which was in turn based on one or more folk tales. The earliest known version of the story is Perceforest, composed between 1330 and 1344 and first printed in 1528."Dornröschen" ist ein Märchen (ATU 410). Es steht in den Kinder- und Hausmärchen der Brüder Grimm ab der 1. Auflage von 1812 an Stelle 50 (KHM 50) und geht durch mündliche Weitergabe über Marie Hassenpflug auf Charles Perraults "La belle au bois dormant" ("Die schlafende Schöne im Wald") zurück. Bei Perrault erschien es 1697 in Contes de ma Mère l’Oye und vorher 1696. Ludwig Bechstein übernahm das Märchen in sein Deutsches Märchenbuch als "Das Dornröschen" (1845 Nr. 63, 1853 Nr. 52).
