Cinderella is a fictional character whose story has been adapted into multiple versions over hundreds of years. It is about a girl living in oppressive and unjust circumstances with her greedy and selfish step-mother and her two ugly step-sisters. However, she has a reversal of fortune when she goes to a ball and meets a handsome prince. The earliest form of the story is most likely from the ancient Greek tale Rhodopis, thought to have been written around 7 B.C.E.
