"Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!"
- Rapunzel, by the Brothers Grimm, 1812

The fairy tale of Rapunzel recounts a the captivity of a girl with long blonde hair and the prince who rescues her. Disney's Tangled (2010), on which this guide is based, is perhaps the most well-known retelling. In Tangled,however, Rapunzel herself is a princess, and she is rescued by a thief.

The story of Rapunzel was first published in 1790, but the idea is much older. Rapunzel's tale was based on earlier fables, such as Persinette and Petrosinella, published as early as 1634. These may have further drawn from a Persian poem from the year 977.
