Hope you enjoyed this episode and our first REAL deep-dive into the history of Cinderella! I found it really interesting how the stories could all unfold in basically the exact same way while still being completely unique from each other. Pretty crazy that this story resonates and is so popular with so many people from around the world. I think it'd be cool to do another episode in the future where I skim over some of the other 700 stories as there were a few I had to leave out of this episode, but that'll probably be somewhere in the near-distant future. Let me know what you think about that and the story itself in a comment down below and don't forget to give the like button a pat on the back!

I usually like the older versions best, but whe it comes to Cinderella my favorite will always be Leslie Ann Warren in the live action Rogers and Hammerstein's Cinderella. My second favorites are Confessions of An Ugly Stepsister, and Phoenix and Ashes. Confessions is told from a different point of view and set in Holland during the Tulip bubble and crash. Phoenix and Ashes has a magical twist and all the messed up touches a person could want.

i think cinderellas real name is ella bc cinder means a small piece of partly burned coal or wood that has stopped giving off flames but still has combustible matter in it, and calling her that was a way to taunt ella

I believe that the girl’s foot had to be broken before it was bound, so that the bones wound heal in that desired shape.

Interesting not: Stephen King's CARRIE can be considered its own variation on Cinderella. Margaret White is Carrie's religious fanatic "step"mother. The vicious mean girls at school are the stepsisters, the prom is the ball, Tommy Ross, the most popular kid in school who takes Carrie to the prom is the prince and Carrie's telekinesis can be interpreted as the "fairy godmother"-parallel.

The supposedly true story of.Rhodopis, an Ancient Egyptian tale is the oldest version known. Rhodopis was a Greek slave girl, but was so highly favored by her master, he gave her a pair of golden sandels. One day she is bathing in the river and an eagle swoops.down and steals one of the sandels. The eagle then proceeds to drop the candle into the lap of the Pharoah. The Pharoah is intrigued by the small candle and sends his troops out to look for the owner, cause the Egyptian army doesn't have anything better to do. They find Rhodopis and bring her back to Pharoah, and he makes her one of his wives. The end.

This is why I love Ever After. Barrymore, herself, did a ton of research for the movie. It's why you can see elements of the combination of the legends in the movie. Yeah, yeah, it's set in the 1510's, but at that time, realistically, *who* could have been the most amazing "fairy godmother", than Leo?? And she had an actual name, the step family didn't die (one was only there for the food anyway), and in all seriousness - being in true love, highly ethical and compassionate....and intelligently rebellious - seems highly attractive, even today.

Even though there have been many versions of the Cinderella story Grimm Brothers did do a version of the story were the step sisters cut of there big toe but still don't get the prince. After Cinderella and the prince were married she convinces birds to pluck out the eyes of her sisters. So yep. Still glad the video covered other versions of the story.

There’s also an African version of the Cinderella story called omatugwa, we performed it in my elementary/primary school play, it’s the same kind of structure but there were two evil stepsisters and one of them cut off her toes to try and squeeze into the glass slipper highly recommend looking into this one because the actual bodily harm on the stepsisters that ensues is much more satisfying of a read than them living happily ever after lol

I'm not gonna state this with a confident conscience, because I could be wrong, as the original could be different from the movie, but I think her real name was Ella. Again, I could be wrong! It's just stated in multiple adaptations of the story, that Ella was called that because she was always covered in cinders. However, while this is present in different adaptations of the original story, the OG Cinderella could have a different real name.

Not sure if someone's said it before, but I read once that when they prepared to bind the foot, they broke it first to make it easier to warp, then they bound it tightly enough that it would heal in the shape they wanted it to be.
