I am not sure if this counts...
Frankenstein is a novel from 1818 and the story was made up by one person (Mary Shelley) as far as I know. I don't think there was a legend or fairytale behind it, like it was the case with Dracula.
But I don't want to be too strict here. What do the others think? Can we keep this picture?

Yeah, it's not really a fairytale, it's a novel. Thing is, Dracula was a novel too, and even though Vampire legends are thousands of years old the character of Dracula himself was invented by Bram Stoker for his book. I think if we're disqualifying this we have to disqualify Dracula too. Frankenstein is essentially a new twist on old zombie/undead legends, after all.

@ Caribou: More like a twist on Jewish Legend of Golem. But, yeah, it rather can stay.
