Sleeping Beauty in the Wood
(French: La Belle au bois dormant
) is a classic fairy tale written by Charles Perrault which involves a beautiful princess, a sleeping enchantment, and a handsome prince.
Once upon a time, when the Queen gave birth to a baby princess, Angels came down and gave the infant blessings. However one evil Angel set a curse that would make the princess prick her finger on a spindle of a spinning wheel and die. Another Angel set a magic on the princess that she would sleep, instead of dying, for a hundred years until a prince comes and awakes her from her sleep.
At the age of 16, the princess gets her finger pricked by the sprindle, and falls asleep. After 100 years, a prince hears about a beautiful princess sleeping in the castle...
