'''"Sleeping Beauty"''', also known as '''"La Belle au bois dormant"''', is a fairytale featured on [[ABC]]'s ''[[Once Upon a Time]]''. It was written by French author [[Wikipedia:Charles Perrault|Charles Perrault]] and incorporated in the book '''"[[Wikipedia:Histoires ou contes du temps passé|Stories or Fairy Tales from Past Times with Morals]]"''' in 1697. Another version of this story was written by the German authors, The [[Wikipedia:Brothers Grimm|Brothers Grimm]], under the title '''"Little Briar Rose"'''.
  +
==Plot==
  +
A King and Queen longing to have children do everything in their power to conceive but are unable to do so. After some time, the Queen gives birth to a baby girl and both she and her husband prepare a banquet to take place on the day of the christening. Among the invited guests are seven fairies, who are selected to act as godmothers to the princess.
   
During the banquet held at the Royal Palace, the fairies are seated before a golden casket filled with bejeweled utensils. Suddenly a Wicked Fairy enters the Great Hall - enraged that she did not receive an invitation - and is given a seating, but not a golden casket since only seven were made. The Good Fairies one by one bestow their gifts: the Gift of Beauty, the Gift of Wit, the Gift of Grace, the Gift of Dance, the Gift of Song and the Gift of Music. Suddenly the Wicked Fairy announces to the assemblage that she too has a gift for the child. She curses the princess to prick her finger on a spindle and die on her sixteenth year. However, one last fairy has yet to give her gift and uses it to partially reverse the wicked fairy's curse, proclaiming that the princess will instead fall into a deep sleep for 100 years and be awoken by a king's son.
+
The day of the christening eventually arrives and, following the proceedings, the royals and their guests adjourn to the King's castle for the banquet. The seven fairies, upon taking their seats, are presented with golden caskets and bejeweled cutlery. At the same moment, an elderly fairy, who had not been seen in several years and presumed dead by all, enters the room. She is immediately given a place at the table but neither a casket nor cutlery. Taking offense at the perceived oversight, the fairy murmurs threats under her breath only to be overheard by the youngest of the seven fairies, who hides when the assemblage finishes eating. 
   
The king forbids spinning on spinning-wheels or spindles, or the possession of one, throughout the kingdom, upon pain of death. When the princess is fifteen or sixteen and her parents are away on pleasure bent, she wanders through the palace rooms going up and down and then chances upon an old woman who is spinning with her distaff in the garret of a tower and had not heard of the king's decree against spinning wheels. The princess asks to try the unfamiliar task and the inevitable happens: the curse is fulfilled. The old woman cries for help and attempts are made to revive her, but to no avail. The king attributes this to fate and has the princess carried to the finest room in the palace and placed upon a bed of gold-and-silver-embroidered fabric. The good fairy who altered the evil prophecy is summoned by a dwarf wearing seven-league boots and returns in a chariot of fire drawn by dragons. Having great powers of foresight, the good fairy sees that the princess will be distressed to find herself alone and so puts everyone in the castle to sleep. The king and queen kiss their daughter goodbye and depart, proclaiming the entrance to be forbidden. The good fairy's magic also summons a forest of trees, brambles and thorns that spring up around the castle, shielding it from the outside world and preventing anyone from disturbing the princess.
+
After the six other fairies bless the princess with the gifts of beauty, wit, grace, dance, song, and musicality, the Wicked Fairy curses her to prick her finger on a spindle and die. The youngest fairy immediately steps forward and uses her gift to partially reverse the curse, making it so that the princess will instead fall into a deep sleep that will last a hundred years and end when she is awoken by a king's son.
   
A hundred years pass and a prince from another family spies the hidden castle during a hunting expedition. His attendants tell him differing stories regarding the happenings in the castle until an old man recounts his father's words: within the castle lies a beautiful princess who is doomed to sleep for a hundred years, whereupon a king's son is to come and awaken her. The prince then braves the tall tress, brambles and thorns which part at his approach, and enters the castle. He passes the sleeping castle folk and comes across the chamber where the princess lies asleep on the bed. Trembling at the radiant beauty before him, he falls on his knees before her. The enchantment comes to an end and the princess awakens and converses with the prince for a long time. Meanwhile, the rest of the castle awakes and go about their business. The prince and princess head over to the hall of mirrors to dine and are later married by the chaplain in the castle chapel.
+
The King, determined to prevent the Wicked Fairy's prophecy from being fulfilled, bans all spinning wheels and spindles from the kingdom, proclaiming that anyone in possession of such objects shall be put to death. Years pass, however, and the prophecy is all but forgotten as the princess grows into a beautiful young woman.
  +
  +
One day, when the King and Queen are away on holiday, the Princess is exploring the castle when she comes across a room located at the top of a tower, where an old woman who has never heard of the King's edict sits spinning with a distaff. Thoroughly intrigued by the task, the Princess attempts to copy the old woman only to prick her finger on the spindle and fulfill the curse.
  +
  +
When several attempts to revive the Princess fail, the King and Queen return and carry her to one of the castle's bedrooms. The seventh fairy then appears, having learned about the tragedy from a dwarf with enchanted boots, and enacts a spell that causes everyone in the castle to fall asleep until the Wicked Fairy's curse is broken.
  +
  +
The seventh fairy proceeds to surround the King's castle with a forest of thick brambles so as to shield it from the outside world. Time passes and, by the time the hundred years comes to an end, another King has taken control of the kingdom.
  +
  +
One day, while hunting with his retinue, the new King's son sees the castle towering over the forest of brambles and interrogates his attendants. They all tell him varying accounts while a passing peasant recounts the story of the Sleeping Princess, to which the Prince becomes fascinated and rides into the forest.
  +
  +
Prepared to brave the brambles, the Prince is surprised to see them part when he approaches and even more surprised when he enters the castle. He eventually comes across the Sleeping Princess and, finding himself infatuated with her, falls to his knees.
  +
  +
At the same moment, the curse breaks, causing both the Princess and everyone else in the castle to wake up. The Prince and Princess engage in a conversation that lasts a long time and, after a long dinner, decide to get married in the castle's chapel.

This article focuses on the fairytale, "Sleeping Beauty".
For the film, see "Sleeping Beauty (Film)".
For the first Enchanted Forest character known as Sleeping Beauty, see Briar Rose.
For the second, see Aurora.

"Sleeping Beauty", also known as "La Belle au bois dormant", is a fairytale featured on ABC's Once Upon a Time. It was written by French author Charles Perrault and incorporated in the book "Stories or Fairy Tales from Past Times with Morals" in 1697. Another version of this story was written by the German authors, The Brothers Grimm, under the title "Little Briar Rose".

Plot

A King and Queen longing to have children do everything in their power to conceive but are unable to do so. After some time, the Queen gives birth to a baby girl and both she and her husband prepare a banquet to take place on the day of the christening. Among the invited guests are seven fairies, who are selected to act as godmothers to the princess.

The day of the christening eventually arrives and, following the proceedings, the royals and their guests adjourn to the King's castle for the banquet. The seven fairies, upon taking their seats, are presented with golden caskets and bejeweled cutlery. At the same moment, an elderly fairy, who had not been seen in several years and presumed dead by all, enters the room. She is immediately given a place at the table but neither a casket nor cutlery. Taking offense at the perceived oversight, the fairy murmurs threats under her breath only to be overheard by the youngest of the seven fairies, who hides when the assemblage finishes eating. 

After the six other fairies bless the princess with the gifts of beauty, wit, grace, dance, song, and musicality, the Wicked Fairy curses her to prick her finger on a spindle and die. The youngest fairy immediately steps forward and uses her gift to partially reverse the curse, making it so that the princess will instead fall into a deep sleep that will last a hundred years and end when she is awoken by a king's son.

The King, determined to prevent the Wicked Fairy's prophecy from being fulfilled, bans all spinning wheels and spindles from the kingdom, proclaiming that anyone in possession of such objects shall be put to death. Years pass, however, and the prophecy is all but forgotten as the princess grows into a beautiful young woman.

One day, when the King and Queen are away on holiday, the Princess is exploring the castle when she comes across a room located at the top of a tower, where an old woman who has never heard of the King's edict sits spinning with a distaff. Thoroughly intrigued by the task, the Princess attempts to copy the old woman only to prick her finger on the spindle and fulfill the curse.

When several attempts to revive the Princess fail, the King and Queen return and carry her to one of the castle's bedrooms. The seventh fairy then appears, having learned about the tragedy from a dwarf with enchanted boots, and enacts a spell that causes everyone in the castle to fall asleep until the Wicked Fairy's curse is broken.

The seventh fairy proceeds to surround the King's castle with a forest of thick brambles so as to shield it from the outside world. Time passes and, by the time the hundred years comes to an end, another King has taken control of the kingdom.

One day, while hunting with his retinue, the new King's son sees the castle towering over the forest of brambles and interrogates his attendants. They all tell him varying accounts while a passing peasant recounts the story of the Sleeping Princess, to which the Prince becomes fascinated and rides into the forest.

Prepared to brave the brambles, the Prince is surprised to see them part when he approaches and even more surprised when he enters the castle. He eventually comes across the Sleeping Princess and, finding himself infatuated with her, falls to his knees.

At the same moment, the curse breaks, causing both the Princess and everyone else in the castle to wake up. The Prince and Princess engage in a conversation that lasts a long time and, after a long dinner, decide to get married in the castle's chapel.
