The story of “Bluebeard” is a very different type of fairytale.  This is due to many violent scenes and descriptive imagery making it not suitable for children.  There are three different versions of this story, “Bluebeard”, “Fitcher’s Bird” and “The Robber Bridegroom”.  These all contain the basic story but have a few differences.
“The Robber Bridegroom” is the very different from the other two versions of the story.  This is my favorite version of the story because it is so different from the others while keeping the same basic story elements.  It is different because the girl never actually marries the man and is able to tell her entire family of the man’s murderous ways.  The girl also hides and witnesses the husband murder a girl.

“Bluebeard” and “Fitchers Bird” are very similar to each other.  This is because it has to do with a girl and man in an arranged marriage.  The girl enters a forbidden room where she finds many dead bodies.  These bodies are due to the husband being a murderer.  In both versions the girls are able to save their lives with there wit.
