The Wild Girl tells the story of Dortchen Wild. Growing up next door to the Grimm brothers in Hesse-Cassel, a small German kingdom.. In 1806, Hesse-Cassel was invaded by the French. The Grimm brothers began collecting fairytales that year, wanting to save the old stories told in spinning-circles and by the fire. Dortchen was the source of many of the tales in the Grimm brother's first collection of fairy tales, which was published in 1812, the year of Napoleon's disastrous march on Russia.
