Rapunzel is queen of the sixth kingdom. She is one of the Five Great Women who changed history. When Rapunzel was a baby she was taken by a witch and grew up in a tower.

Physical Description[]

As she never appeared,it is unknown what she looks like but one thing's for sure, she had a long braid of flowing silky hair which was long enough to serve as a ladder to her tall tower. In most versions of the story, Rapunzel is described as fair with golden locks.

History[]

Early Life[]

Rapunzel was born to a peasant family. Before her birth her father got into trouble with his neighbor The Witch for stealing radishes due to Rapunzel's mother's pregnant cravings. The witch agreed but on one condition the baby born was hers, the man relucatantly agreed. The child was born and taken away from her devastated parents. When the child was twelve she was locked in a tower. Every day the witch came saying, "Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair."

Rescue[]

One day a prince was wandering in the woods when he spotted the tower. he climbed it and saw beautiful Rapunzel. One day, the old witch was combing Rapunzel's hair when she asked without thinking, "Mother, how is it you climb rough on my hair while my prince is softer?" the old witch cut Rapunzel's hair and banished her in the middle of nowhere. The prince came to the tower, climbing Rapunzel's cut locks expecting to meet Rapunzel but instead, saw the witch, and the witch let go of the cut locks, and the prince fell into thorns, blinding him. In the end, Rapunzel and the prince find each-other and get married.

Queen of 6th kingdom[]

Rapunzel became the queen of the Sixth Kingdom. Her popularity among her subjects must have been great as her name is remembered as one of the great women who changed history. Like Snow White, she died of old age and like the fairest of them all, her departure from the living ended the reign of happily ever after.

One of her descendants was cursed by an evil fairy to die upon pricking her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel but a benevolent fairy altered the spell so Rapunzel's descendant would merely fall into a sleep which would last for a hundred years and end once a prince awoke Rapunzel's descendant with true love's kiss.

Her Curse[]

Years later, a spell was created in inspiration of Rapunzel's hair. The gypsy leader cast it on Virginia Lewis after she freed the gypsies stock of talking birds. The spell was designed to grant the victim the old queen's pain inflicted upon her by her braid. The long hair would weigh the victim down, entangle and trap them forever.
