"It has, of course, become the basis of a fairy-tale familair to us all in the version by Hans Anderson"

   The tale of a vain ruler humiliated by the promise of an outfit invisible to all who are unworthy appears in many versions around the world, definitively retold as The Emperor's New Clothes by Danish author Hans Christian Anderson (1805-1875).
