The Disney princesses form a mega-franchise loved by little girls (and some grown women!) everywhere, but there’s more to them than sparkly shoes and pretty dresses. Every Disney woman had a vast amount of work put into her creation. You may not know these 40 things about the most beloved princesses and their movies, but those are the little details that helped make them so popular.
40. Mulan is the only non-royal princess
All other Disney princesses either were born royalty or married into it. The characters who don’t call themselves “princesses” – Pocahontas and Moana – still are technically royalty among their communities, as they’re both daughters of a chief. Mulan is the one exception. She’s an imperial consul, married to a general, but Disney counts her as a princess nonetheless.
