Hans Christian Andersen was born in Denmark on the 2nd of April 1805.
He was born on the island of Funen, in a city called Odense.
He died on the 4th of August 1875 in Denmark's capital city of Copenhagen and is buried in Assistens Cemetery.
Hans Christian Andersen was a prolific writer of poems, novels, plays and travelogues but is most famous for his fairy tales.
These include The Little Mermaid, Thumbelina, The Ugly Duckling and The Princess And The Pea.
He actually wrote 168 short stories, which I have started to read, in chronological order, on the Eye See Copenhagen Podcast channel.
