Hans Christian Andersen, Danish story writer, author

Hans Christian Andersen, (Aprill 2, 1805 - August 4, 1875)

Hans Christian Andersen, (H. C. Andersen) was born in Odense in Denmark. He was an only child. H. C. Andersen was a Danish author, fairy tale writer, and poet, and worldwide known for his children's stories, which delighted children worldwide. 

His fairytales have been translated into more than 150 languages.

 

The story of Hans Christian Andersen:

Andersen's father, also Hans, considered himself related to nobility. His paternal grandmother had told his father that their family had in the past belonged to a higher social class, but investigations prove these stories unfounded. - The family apparently was affiliated with Danish royalty, but through employment or trade. Today, speculation persists that Andersen may have been an illegitimate son of the royal family. In any case, King Frederick VI took a personal interest in him as a youth and paid for a part of his education. According to writer Rolf Dorset, Andersen's ancestry remains indeterminate.

Hans Christian´s family forced him however to support himself, as the family became very poor after his fathers deaths in 1816.  At 14, he moved to Copenhagen to seek employment as an actor. Having an excellent soprano voice, he was accepted into the Royal Danish Theatre, but his voice soon changed. A colleague at the theatre told him that he considered Andersen a poet. Taking the suggestion seriously, he began to focus on writing.

Andersen remain single for all of his life, Andersen was often shy around women, he often fell in love, but he were disapointed every time... One of his stories, "The Nightingale", was a written expression of his passion for the opera soprano Jenny Lind.
