Rapunzel is a German fairytale in the collection assembled by the Brothers Grimm. It tells the story of a lonely couple who have a beautiful baby girl but were forced to give her up to an evil witch, Dame Gothel. When Rapunzel is twelve she is locked up in a tower that has no stairs or door. Access is by climbing up Rapunzel’s long golden hair which she hangs out of the window. One day a prince hears her singing and climbs up her hair and they fall in love.
