** then there are the variants where the Cinderella is the Houdini because the reason she was stuck with a Wicked Stepmother was that her governess persuaded her to murder her mother or existing stepmother and then persuade her father to marry the governess instead.

* TwiceToldTale: Tellings and retellings [[FracturedFairyTale and parodies]] are limitless. As well, variants of the tale have been recorded in a wide array of cultures throughout history, going all the way back to Ancient Egypt and China as well as Europe and North America. The appeal of the story is pretty much universal.



* WickedStepmother: If not the UrExample, certainly the TropeCodifier and TropeNamer (Yes, it codified a lot of these tropes). For ages stepmothers in fiction were thought to be evil and it all started by calling her step-daugter "Cinder girl".
