Aesop was probably born in Thrace, Ancient Greece, around 600 BC. However, his existence as a historical figure is uncertain, though there are many legends surrounding him. The fables associated with him were not written down during his lifetime, but passed on through the oral tradition of storytelling, and eventually over 350 stories were collected under his name, many of which are still hugely popular today.
