Hero Overview

Princess Rapunzel (simply known as Rapunzel) is the main protagonist in Barbie as Rapunzel. She is a daughter of King Wilhelm and his unamed wife, the wife of Prince Stefan, daughter-in-law of King Frederick and the sister-in-law of Princess Melody, Princess Katrina, Princess Lorena, and Prince Tommy.

She is voiced by Kelly Sheridan.


When Rapunzel was an infant who is kidnapped by an evil witch named Gothel and placed in a castle, hidden in the deep forest behind the enchanted wall. She spent seventeen years in captivity, as well as a servant thinking Gothel had saved her as a baby when she was young. With her, in the castle were two animals, a kind dragon named Penelope, and rabbit named Hobbie. One day, when Rapunzel cleaned one of the halls of the castle, she discovered a secret room, in which Gothel kept everything that reminded her of her past.

Among other things, Rapunzel has found a box inside a silver brush was placed. On the brush was written "To our daughter, Rapunzel on her first birthday with Love forever, Mother and Father." The message made no sense, for Gothel had told her that she was abandoned days after her birth. Beneath the floor boards of the secret chamber was a dark and narrow passage. Rapunzel bravely followed it and discovered a small village. As Rapunzel strolled through the valley, she saved the life of a young Princess, with the assistance of Prince Stefan.

Rapunzel realized the time and left before introducing herself to the handsome Prince. When she returned home, Gothel was waiting for her. Rapunzel tried to reason with her, but Gothel called her a liar and extended the height of Rapunzel's tower, trapping her.


Rapunzel is very kind, courageous, and adventurous. She is also helped Katrina, the little sister of Prince Stefan. She was also a dreamer and a good artist.

She paints the whole time if there was nothing to do or when she finished all of the chores Gothel has assigned her. She's quickly thinks, leading Gothel to the magic portrait of the mansion.

Rapunzel is also very patient with Gothel, and hardly ever complains. She is rather optimistic about most things.
