Josef Grimm was a member of the Grimm Family who lived from 1848-1927. Like all members of the Grimm family, it can be assumed he was either a fairytale detective, or he was aware of the existence of Everafters. The youngest child of Spaulding Grimm and Jane Ella Grimm, Josef is a Grimm by blood, younger than his brother Douglas Grimm II by a year.

Josef Grimm is the great-great grandfather of Sabrina and Daphne Grimm. He had three children with his wife, Anna: Peter Grimm when he was 22 years old and Vesta and Trixie Grimm when he was 27.


Josef, commonly spelled as Joseph is derived from the Latin Ioseph. Also a Biblical name, Joseph was the eleventh son of Jacob, and means 'he will add' in Hebrew.
