Sleeping Beauty’s earliest influence may come from a French romance first printed in 1528. It contains many elements similar to the later Sleeping Beauty stories.
A princess is born and on her christening is cursed to prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel before the end of her 16th birthday and die. Her fairy godmother helps by saying that she won't die but be put to sleep until she gets her true love's kiss. After being raised away from the castle, she returns with her fairy godmother at sunset on her 16th birthday. When left alone, she is hypnotised to prick her finger and falls into deep sleep. A prince, whom she met by chance that day, defeats the evil witch and kisses the sleeping princess.
