Countess d'Aulnoy


Marie-Catherine Le Jumel de Barneville, Baroness d'Aulnoy, also known as Countess d'Aulnoy was a 17th century French author who was the first to use the term "fairy tales" for her stories. Her tales were unique for being written in a conversational - rather than a formal - style, and as a result were seen as being more for suitable for adults than for children.
