From Snow White and Aurora to more recent additions like Tiana and Mulan, Disney princesses have won our hearts with their stories of true love and virtue triumphing over evil. That doesn’t mean they don’t have their low points. If you look attentively enough, as many fans have done online, you will see that Disney princesses have some very painful moments. Among Mulan’s many examples, for example, just after the titular heroine and her companions finish singing the joyful “A Girl Worth Fighting For,” Mulan discovers a children’s toy in the ruins of a charred village—a girl worth fighting for. Princess Jasmine nearly gets her hand severed by an enraged merchant in Aladdin. The truly sinister aspect is that his chopping block already has several blade marks on it. There are also certain things that appear lovely on the surface but are far from it when examined further. In Tangled, Gothel kisses Rapunzel on the head. It’s not actually intended for the girl, but rather for her hair. Check out this collection of devastating minor tidbits about Disney princesses discovered by fans, and don’t forget to share your favorites!
