"derived from Grimm and Tieck"

The Brothers Grimm were Jacob (1785 - 1863) and Wilhelm (1786 - 1859), German academics and cultural researchers who collected old European folk stories. Their published collections of folk and fairy tales remain famous as Grimm's Fairy Tales, and contain stories such as Aschenputtel (Cinderella), Der Froschkönig (The Frog Prince), Hänsel und Gretel, and Schneewittchen (Snow White).

Johann Ludwig Tieck (1773 - 1853) was a German poet, novelist, critic and translator of the Romantic movement. He published a collection of Märchen - folk or fairy tales - with titles such as Die Elfen, Der Runenberg, and Der blonde Eckbert.
