|~ King Stefan orders his guards to seize Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty|
King Stefan is the father of Princess Aurora and a supporting character in Disney's 1959 animated feature film, Sleeping Beauty. He and his wife, Queen Leah, had a baby girl and invited everybody except Maleficent to the celebration. He is friends with King Hubert.
King Stefan and Queen Leah are the monarchs of a Kingdom. He is overjoyed when his wife gives birth to a baby girl whom they named Aurora. The whole kingdom was invited by Stefan to celebrate her birth. But his and his queen's happiness is short-lived, as the evil witch Maleficent, the only person not invited to Aurora's celebration, enters his castle and threatens to curse the baby. She then prophecizes that on Aurora's 16th birthday, she will die from touching the spindle of a spinning wheel, although after she leaves, one of the Three Good Fairies weakens the curse so their daughter will sleep instead of die. The King and Queen make the hardest decision of their lives: their daughter must be raised by the Three Good Fairies away in the forest in order to protect her. King Stefan ordered all spinning wheels in the kingdom to be burned in an attempt to prevent the curse from happening. The narrator reveals that sixteen sad and lonely years passed for Stefan and his dear queen.
Sixteen years later, he is waiting for his now teenage daughter's return to the Castle. While in the dining room drinking, he and Hubert quarrel over their children until Hubert mistakenly grabs a fish instead of his sword and they burst out laughing. When Aurora touches the spindle, the Good Fairies put everyone in the Kingdom to sleep. When Maleficent is defeated by Prince Phillip, he awakens and finally meets his daughter in happiness.
