Rose Red

Rose Red

Rose Red (or Rose-Red) is a character in the fairy tale "Snow-White and Rose-Red", recorded by the Brothers Grimm. She is the sister of Snow White. Of the two, Rose Red is portrayed as the more rambunctious of the two devoted sisters, associated with the summer as Snow White is with the winter.

The story of Rose Red and Snow White features evil dwarves and a bear who becomes a prince. Snow White marries this prince, and Rose Red marries his brother. The story also features a kindly mother who tells the two sisters that they must share between the two of them all that they have. This story is unrelated to the "Snow White" tale popularized in modern times by the Walt Disney film "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs".
