Lohr am Main - Hometown of Snow White

Lohr am Main-Hometown of Snow White

One of the candidates for Snow White - if she was an actual historical person - is Maria Sophia von Erthal.  She lived with her family in Lohr am Main, a town depicted in this photo.

A local scholar - Karlheinz Bartels - reported the results of a 17-year study into the background of Snow White (known as Schneewittchen in German).  It was Bartels, and his fabulist study group, who determined that Maria Sophia von Erthal is the real Snow White.  (See Karlheinz Bartels:  Schneewittchen - Zur Fabulologie des Spessarts. Lohr, 1990.)
