From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Wilhelm Carl Grimm (February 24, 1786 - 1859) was one of the Brothers Grimm.
In 1825 Wilhelm married Henriette Dorothea Wild, also known as Dortchen.
From 1837-1841 the Grimm Brothers joined five of their colleague professors at the University of Göttingen to form a group known as the Göttinger Sieben (The Göttingen Seven). They protested against Ernst August, King of Hanover, whom they accused of violating the constitution. All seven were fired by the king.
