Those that know me will tell you about my love for merfolk despite them being nothing more than a fisherman’s tale. In Rosenberg Castle Gardens in Copenhagen, Denmark there is a statue of what the little mermaid would look like if she was real. The Little Mermaid, by Hans Christian Anderson, was released in 1836. The story tells the story of a young princess willing to sacrifice everything in pursuit of true love.
When Disney created the film The Little Mermaid (1989), many young girls dreamed of having a tail instead of legs and living in the underwater world. There are more to their aquatic hybrids than being showcased as a fun Disney character. These creatures had their own underwater society and laws that are different from the human world.
