Rampion's (Rapunzel's) Tower
by Terran Marks
Rampion is the plant in Dame Gothel's (the enchantress) walled garden that Rapunzel's mother coveted. Rampion and Rapunzel are synonyms.
I thought it would be fun to draw up a faux architectural drawing of the tower where Rapunzel was kept.
Thanks for taking a look!
J. and W. Grimm, 1812
Rapunzel grew into the most beautiful child beneath the sun. When she was twelve years old, the enchantress shut her into a tower, which lay in a forest, and had neither stairs nor door, but quite at the top was a little window. When the enchantress wanted to go in, she placed herself beneath this, and cried,
Let down your hair to me."
Rapunzel had magnificent long hair, fine as spun gold, and when she heard the voice of the enchantress she unfastened her braided tresses, wound them round one of the hooks of the window above, and then the hair fell twenty yards down, and the enchantress climbed up by it.
