From Shakespeares Queen of the Fairies to the Flower Fairies and the Christmas Fairy, the magical creatures have enchanted centuries of people.

Each short biography will have a symbol to show where they found their fame, whether in books, films, cartoons or, like Fairy Liquid, brands and advertising. Did you know?
