The Story of Blue Beard is French folktale published in by Charles Perrault. Parents of young children be warned, Blue Beard is an evil man who murders his wives, except for his last, whose brothers save her and her family lives happily.Bluebeard gives his newest bride a set of keys and tells her she can unlock any door in the vast château, but must never go into the cellar.

Overcome by curiosity, she opens the cellar door and finds the floor covered with blood, and the bodies of his six previous wives hung up on the walls. The blood still remained, for the key was magical and she could never make it quite clean; when the blood was gone off from one side, it came again on the other.

Bluebeard returned from his journey the same evening, saying that he had received letters upon the road, informing him that the affair he went about had concluded to his advantage.
