Hans Christian Andersen is probably the best known of all Danes. He wrote plays, travelogues, novels, and poems, but he is best remembered for his fairy tales.
Andersen was born to humble beginnings in Odense, Denmark and first rose to public notice in the late 1820's. Two of his stories; "The Little Mermaid" and "The Snow Queen (Frozen)" have been the basis of Walt Disney Animated Movies.
