In December 2012, an Unknown HC Andersen Fairy-tale was discovered in Denmark by a historian at Denmark's National Archives. Historian Esben Brage discoverd the story while rummaging through some old boxes. The story is titled, 'The Tallow Candle', and it is believed to have been written while Andersen was still a teenager.

This is not the first time a fairy-tale have reached the public after the author's death in 1875. In 1926, two stories were published; 'Croak' and 'The Penman', and again in 1949, 3 stories were published; 'Folks Say', 'Uranus' and 'The Poor Woman and the Little Canary Bird'. Read the Tallow Candle.
