Disney Princes

Just like the Princesses, everyone has a favorite and so we are going to go through the Princes in no particular order.

Prince Ferdinand/Florian “The Prince” (Snow White And The 7 Dwarfs)

Prince Florian

Who is Prince Ferdinand’s Disney Princess?

Prince Ferdinands Disney Princess is Snow White. Referred to as just “The Prince,” Prince Ferdinand (also known as Florian) is from Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs. We are never told his name in the movie!

Snow White ran away into the forest after being threatened with death by the evil queen. In the forest, she finds the cottage where the seven dwarfs live.

The seven dwarfs take her in. One day while they are at work, the Evil Queen shows up, disguised as an old hag. She convinces Snow White to eat a poison apple. Snow White falls into a deep slumber.

The Seven Dwarfs build her a glass coffin and keep watch over her. One day, the Prince shows up….one kiss is all it took for them to live happily ever after!

Fun Facts About Prince Ferdinand

  • He was the first ever Disney Prince, but he didn’t make much of an appearance in the film!
  • The Prince appears in the beginning of the movie, singing with Snow White, and at the end of the movie where he rescues Snow White from her stepmother’s curse.

Prince Charming (Cinderella)

Prince Charming

Prince Charming is the prince from Cinderella. Is Charming his first or last name? Nobody really knows! Prince Charming’s father, The King, throws a royal ball in hopes that the Prince will find a woman to marry.

Prince Charming at first is very opposed to marrying, but after meeting Cinderella at the ball he falls in love. In fact, Prince Charming and Cinderella sing “So This Is Love” as they dance. He goes on a quest to find the mysterious woman who lost a shoe at the royal ball.

Cinderella and Prince Charming

Prince Charming is a very likeable person and he is relentless in finding Cinderella after she quickly leaves the ball without revealing her actual identity. He knows what he wants and won’t give up.

Fun Facts About Prince Charming

  • The carousel in the Magic Kingdom’s official name is Prince Charming’s Regal Carrousel! It used to be called Cinderella’s Golden Carrousel until 2010 when the attraction got renamed to better fit plans for Fantasyland.

Prince Philip (Sleeping Beauty)

Sleeping Beauty and Prince Philip

Philip is the son of King Hubert and Queen Ingrith. His trusty horse is Samson. It is rumored that Prince Philip was named after England’s Queen Elizabeth II’s husband, Prince Philip of Edinburgh.

He is loyal and super dependable which makes Prince Philip a very likable and well respected Prince. Prince Philip is the first “hero” prince of the Disney movies.

While trying to rescue Aurora, Prince Philip was captured by Maleficent and put into a dungeon on the Forbidden Mountain. The good fairies Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather come to Prince Philip’s rescue.

The Good fairies

They give him the Sword of Truth and the Shield of Virtue – weapons of righteousness that will triumph over evil. Prince Philip uses these tools to eventually kill Maleficent who had turned herself into a dragon.

Prince Philip wakes up Sleeping Beauty with true love’s kiss – which also wakes up the rest of the castle which had been put into a magical slumber. Of course, Philip and Aurora end up living happily ever after!

Who is Prince Philip’s Disney Princess?

Prince Philip’s Disney Princess is Aurora (also commonly known as Sleeping Beauty).

Prince Naveen (The Princess And The Frog)

Prince Naveen

Naveen is the Prince of Maldonia. His parents are the King and Queen and he has a younger brother named Prince Ralphie. Prince Naveen has a valet named Lawrence.

Prince Naveen starts out as a spoiled, lazy, selfish prince whose only concern is living life to the fullest. Prince Naveen is cut off from his parents fortune which makes Naveen want to marry a wealthy woman named Charlotte La Bouff.

Naveen makes a deal with an evil witch doctor named Dr. Facilier, and in the process gets tricked and turned into a frog. The only way to turn back into a human is to kiss a princess.

Princ Naveen from The princess and the frog

Prince Naveen meets Tiana and mistakenly believes her to be a princess. After convincing her to kiss him, Tiana also turns into a frog. As time progresses, Naveen and Tiana fall in love.

Prince Naveen realizes that true love is more important than money and turning back into a human. He decides he would rather be a frog with Tiana than a human without her. Tiana and Prince Naveen marry….and as they kiss they both turn back into humans!

Tiana married a prince which made her a princess – and their kiss broke the spell!

Who is Prince Naveen’s Disney Princess?

Prince Naveen’s Disney Princess is Tiana.

Flynn Rider (Tangled)

Flynn Rider

Flynn is one of our favorites! Flynn’s name is Eugene Fitzherbert. Flynn wasn’t a fan of that name, so he is most well known as Flynn Rider.

In Tangled, Flynn admits that he was raised in an orphanage and does not give any indication that he is an actual royal prince. We later learn in Tangled: The Series that Flynn is actually the son of King Edmund, making Flynn the Prince of The Dark Kingdom. We also learn that his given name was “Horace.”

Flynn is one of the most well loved princes in the Disney franchise. That being said, there has been some controversy over how old Flynn actually is. We did some research, and found out Flynn Rider’s actual age!

Rapunzel and Flynn from Tangled

Who is Flynn Rider’s Disney Princess?

Flynn Rider’s Disney Princess is Rapunzel.

Fun Facts About Flynn Rider

  • Flynn’s character is reminiscent of the infamous Indiana Jones and Han Solo.
  • Flynn is supposedly named after Erroll Flynn, a famous actor from the Golden Age of Hollywood.
  • Many critics say that Flynn and Rapunzel’s characters in Tangled give this movie a romantic comedy feel that many of the other princess movies don’t have – making this movie reach a wider audience.

Prince Adam (Beauty And The Beast)

Beauty and the Beast dancing

We have now come to the Beast. His real name is Prince Adam but we will just call him The Beast. We know nothing about the Beast’s family. The Beast plays a prominent role in this movie, unlike the prior Disney princess movies.

When we first meet the Beast we find out that he was once a handsome, unkind prince who refused to give shelter and care to an old woman. The woman revealed herself to be an enchantress and put the Beast and all his servants under a spell.

In order for the Beast and his servants to return to being humans, the beast needed to find someone to fall in love with him and kiss before the last petal of the magic rose falls.

Through a course of events, Belle becomes a prisoner in the Beast’s castle. Over time, Belle works with the servants to soften the Beast’s personality and heart and the two end up making a connection and eventually fall in love.

Belle and the beast (prince Adam)

After a fight between The Beast and Gaston, Belle realizes she loves the Beast. She kisses him as he is dying, and he is transformed back into his human form.

Who is Prince Adam’s Disney Princess? (Who is the Beast’s Disney Princess?)

Prince Adam’s Disney Princess is Belle.

Prince Eric (The Little Mermaid)

Prince Eric

This is one Prince that we like right from the get go! Eric is the quintissential prince from Disneys Renissance era.

We are never told the name of Prince Eric’s kingdom – all we know is that it is seaside. We also don’t know much of anything about Eric’s family – it seems that his parents are no longer alive.

Eric’s manservant and ally is Grimsby. Chef Louis and Carlotta also work in Prince Eric’s castle. Eric’s sheepdog, Max, is usually with him.

Eric is an expert sailer and a fantastic swimmer. He is loved by his kingdom and they eagerly await his marriage to a princess. Eric is also able to play the flute.

We first meet Prince Eric as he is celebrating his birthday on a ship at sea, holding out for marriage until he meets “the one.” When Eric meets Ariel, he is hoping that she is the one he was looking for. Once he realized Ariel can’t talk, he is deeply saddened.

Here is where Prince Eric’s true personality comes out! He is a true gentleman and treats Ariel with great kindness, patience and understanding. What a guy! While Ariel’s friends try to get Eric to kiss her, Eric slowly starts to fall in love with Ariel.

Of course, by the end of the movie Ariel can talk, she has legs, and will live happily ever after with Eric!

Prince Eric’s Disney Princess is Ariel

Aladdin (Aladdin)


Aladdin is of course, from the movie Aladdin. One of the most interesting things about this movie is that while it is technicaly a “princess movie,” the film has Aladdin as the main character, not Jasmine.

Aladdin is a poor kid who lives in the streets in the kingdom of Agrabah. We know nothing about his family – we simply know he does not have one. Aladdin hangs out with his monkey named Abu.

He is “Mr. Energy” with tons of imagination and creativity attached to him. Aladdin is super likeable with kind of a boyish, devil-may-care personality that is fun to watch.

He is optimistic, clevery, and witty. We also know that Aladdin looks out for those less fortunate than himself – we see him give an apple he stole for himself to some hungry children.

Aladdin and Jasmine

Aladdin is the first Disney prince who is not royal by birth. He becomes a prince by marrying Princess Jasmine. He is known for the phrase “Do you trust me?” and the song “A Whole New World.”

Who is Aladdin’s Disney Princess?

Aladdin’s Disney Princess is Jasmine.

Captain Li Shang (Mulan)

Captain Li Shang is Mulan’s love interest. He is the son of General Li. Captain Li aspires to follow in his father’s footsteps and lead “China’s greatest troops.” He is very strong and skilled in bojutsu. He is well known for his song “I’ll Make A Man Out Of You.”

Li Shang is not a prince by blood or marriage as Mulan is not a princess. However, Mulan IS an official Disney princess, which makes Li Shang a Disney prince. We know this is a bit confusing – to see what makes Mulan an official princess go here.

Who is Li Shang’s Disney Princess?

Li Shang’s Disney Princes is Mulan.

John Smith (Pocahontas)

John Smith is not really a Prince as far as royalty is concerned. We needed to put him in the list because of his prominent “Disney Male” role. John is an English explorer in 1607 and his character is loosely based off the actual historical figure.

John Smith is an explorer, adventurer, and solider. He is apparently legendary as we are told there are “amazing stories about him.” His protege is Thomas. He is the captain of a ship headed to the New World.

Who is John Smith’s Disney Princess?

John Smith’s Disney Princess is Pocahontas.
