The Origin of Shrek

The creator of the popular cartoon Shrek, William Steig, drew his character from the professional wrestler Maurice Tiye.
The real prototype knew 14 languages, played chess brilliantly, and despite his frightening face and great strength at first glance, he was a very modest and friendly man.
He was born in 1903 in Russia, in the Urals, into a French family, which in 1917 returned to France in connection with the revolution.
