The story of Rapunzel from Disney's Tangled franchise.




Tangled: Before Ever After

Rapunzel serves as the protagonist of the animated television movie. Taking place a few months after the events of Tangled, and before Tangled Ever After, Rapunzel returns to her kingdom to assume her rightful place in the royal family. Having been reunited with her parents, Rapunzel tries to adjust to life as a princess, receiving help from Pascal and her lady-in-waiting, Cassandra. She tries her best, and despite having a loving family and a supportive circle of friends, Rapunzel feels overwhelmed with the amount of responsibility that comes with being a princess. She asks her father for a change of pace in this regard, but he denies, fearing Rapunzel's desire to explore the world will lead to her falling into harm's way, much like she did eighteen years prior when she was kidnapped by Gothel. On top of this — and the fact that Rapunzel's bubbly way of carrying herself is looked down upon by the royal community — Eugene feels confident enough to propose to Rapunzel, and does so, much to the princess' shock and delight. However, despite her love for him, Rapunzel does not feel ready to marry, instead of wanting to figure herself out and live the life she's been longing for. Overwhelmed and anxious, she rejects Eugene's proposal and leaves the scene in a huff.

In her bedroom, Rapunzel laments her feelings of guilt to Cassandra, who believes Rapunzel could use some downtime. She offers to take Rapunzel beyond Corona's security wall — a forbidden act — and sneaks the princess out with the help of Maximus. During their outing, Cassandra takes Rapunzel to the former location of the healing flower that saved Rapunzel and her mother when the latter fell ill during her pregnancy. Mysterious thorn-like rocks have appeared in the area, and not only are they ominous, but also unbreakable. As Rapunzel examines the area further, she is struck by the magic that causes her long, golden hair to grow back. After returning to the castle, Rapunzel and Cassandra try to rid themselves of the hair, but like the rocks, it is unbreakable. Eugene arrives and discovers the truth, offering assistance in hiding it from Queen Arianna and King Frederic. Cassandra gets the idea of hiding the hair in an oversized wig, which helps well enough despite the awkwardness.

Rapunzel then joins her parents for breakfast, during which Frederic admits that his methods of protecting Rapunzel have been rather unfair, and notes that he is reconsidering his decisions, much to Rapunzel's excitement. Afterward, Arianna visits Rapunzel in the latter's bedroom, to bestow a coronation gift. She encourages Rapunzel to choose how to live her life — and eventually rule the kingdom — despite her father's stubbornness and what others may think. She gives Rapunzel a journal she once used in her younger years, with a note that reads: "Plus est en vous", which is French for "There is more to you".

Later on, Rapunzel's coronation ceremony begins, and during it, the royal family is confronted by a pirate known as Lady Caine, who seeks vengeance on King Frederic for imprisoning her father. Frederic and the rest of the royal guests are kidnapped, but Rapunzel refuses to stand down and reveals her golden hair. She uses it as a weapon to defeat the pirates with Eugene and Cassandra's help, saving her father. That night, despite proving her worth, Frederic feels more insecure about Rapunzel's safety than ever before. With the very reason Rapunzel was taken in the first place having returned, Frederic feels he's forced to forbid Rapunzel from ever leaving the walls of Corona without his consent, driving his daughter to tears. With her father's new law, Rapunzel feels trapped once more, similar to her imprisonment within the tower. Eugene arrives and comforts her, uplifting her spirits a bit. After he leaves, Rapunzel reads the message in the journal given to her by Arianna and becomes inspired to pursue the adventure she's always desired (such as uncovering the mystery behind her hair's return), despite the obstacles she will have to face.

Rapunzel's Tangled Adventure

Season 1

In "What the Hair?!," Nearly a week after her coronation, Rapunzel and Cassandra seek out an alchemist in their first attempt at solving the mystery as to how and why Rapunzel's 70-foot golden hair grew back. Eugene follows them, but things don't go quite as planned; they find Varian, a 14-year-old alchemist who agrees to help uncover the mystery of Rapunzel's hair. However, Varian had built some underground machines which run out of control and destroy the village. Luckily, no one is hurt and the test shows some important facts about Rapunzel's hair; it's completely indestructible and doesn't have any healing powers any more, but now can completely cover somebody and protect them. As they leave, Rapunzel begins telling Eugene about the events of the night when her hair grew back (which Eugene promises to keep secret) and the black rocks slowly start to grow back and multiply.

In "Rapunzel's Enemy," Rapunzel tries to win the favor of Uncle Monty, a kindly old man who booed her after she had unveiled the new seal for the 500th Gopher Grab. All attempts to make him like her fail, so Rapunzel resorts to disguising herself. At first things go well between the two of them, but the Gopher Grab starts before he can reveal why he doesn't like the princess. Unfortunately, the Gopher Grab gets out of control when the gopher goes berserk due to Eugene feeding it the wrong berries, so the two venture to a river. Monty tries to grab it from some rocks, but falls into the water. With no choice, Rapunzel drops her disguise and rescues him from a waterfall. Despite this, he explains that his naysaying is because of the new seal, as well as a disregard to tradition. He softens up by revealing the gopher he snatched up, which made him the champion of the festival as he dreamed of being, but is still sour at the princess for lying to him. Rapunzel finally accepts that not everybody has to like everyone, and that she doesn't like him either, and the two part as not-friends.

In "Great Expotations," Rapunzel takes attends a science exposition and even competes by inventing a Megadry, a giant fan. She also makes Varian's promise to keep her hair's magic a secret when he tells them that the black rocks physically respond to her and they were growing in the village of Old Corona.

In "Queen for a Day," Rapunzel takes over the kingdom while her parents go away for their anniversary. A blizzard strikes Corona, keeping everyone inside their houses, and an accident in the mountains traps Frederic and Arianna; Rapunzel sends Eugene and the other thugs to rescue them. Xavier reveals that the blizzard was a curse sent by Zhan Tiri, an evil monster who attempted to destroy Corona but was defeated and imprisoned in another realm by his enemy, alchemist Lord Demanitus, who used a device to redirect the blizzard. The blizzard was set to strike when Corona was at its weakest and now it qualifies with Rapunzel struggling to be queen. Meanwhile, the black rocks keep spreading in Old Corona and begin to approach the castle; Varian and his father Quirin go to talk to King Frederic. When Quirin says nothing about the rocks, Varian talks to Rapunzel who promises to help. Varian starts testing the mystical rocks, but his father forbids him, refusing to tell him anything. One of Varian's experiments result in the rocks trapping Quirin; Varian rushes to ask for Rapunzel's help, but Rapunzel tells him that she can't help him just then, leaving Varian feeling betrayed. Rapunzel orders the evacuation of the island, but then remembers about a legend told earlier by Xavier about an underground machine with the power to change the way of the blizzard. After all these disasters, Rapunzel is unsure if she wants to be queen, while Varian swears revenge.

In "The Alchemist Returns," Rapunzel is manipulated by Varian into giving him access to the Sundrop, whereupon she finds that Varian's real intention is not to help Corona but to use the flower to save his father. She is shocked by his betrayal and at the end of the episode she tells her worries to Eugene; meanwhile, Varian discovers that the Sundrop is no longer in the flower but it is now Rapunzel herself.

In "Secret of the Sun Drop," Raps is celebrating her 19th birthday when Corona is beset by an automaton attack from Varian, which causes Frederic to lock Rapunzel in her room to keep her safe from further danger. Eugene and Cassandra help break her out to go after Varian, but the alchemist uses his pet raccoon, mutated into a wild beast, to assault the kingdom, incapacitating many of the Royal Guards and using the chaos to kidnap Arianna, whom he uses as bait to lure Rapunzel to Old Corona. Frederick discovers Cassandra's role in the return of Rapunzel's hair and forcefully sends her to a convent. Led by Cassandra, Eugene, Rapunzel, and Frederic, the Royal Guards lay siege to Varian's house, but he uses automatons to keep them at bay. Varian attempts to use Rapunzel's hair to free his father, but it is of no use. Angry and with nothing left to lose, he uses a giant automaton to attack, threatening to kill Cassandra and Arianna. Suddenly, the black rocks appear on the battlefield and trap Rapunzel. However, she uses her connection to them to defeat Varian, who is arrested for his crimes and vows vengeance. Rapunzel notices that the rocks have blown a hole in the border wall and are now pointing away from Corona and towards an unknown destination beyond the border wall, a path which she is encouraged to follow. In a post-credits scene, a mysterious warrior arrives and uses a special sword to slice through the seemingly impenetrable black rocks.

Season 2

In "Beyond the Corona Walls," Rapunzel is hesitant to marry Eugene at first, but when he was nearly forced into marrying his ex-fiancee, Stalyan, she decides to marry Eugene straightaway, only for him to insist that they should wait until she truly decides it is the right time.

In "The Return of Quaid," she convinces a beekeeper to return to his old job as a sheriff.

In "Goodbye and Goodwill," she attempts to celebrate a Goodwill festival with the people of Vardaros, but soon becomes jealous of Cassandra when her activities were more popular than her own.

In "Freebird," her sense of adventure gets her and Cass, and soon the others, turned into birds.

In "King Pascal," Rapunzel and the gang end up stranded on a tropical island.

In "There's Something About Hook Foot," Rapunzel tries to convince Hook Foot to just be himself on a date he has with a mermaid.

In "Happiness Is...," Raps finds an idol that grants whomever holds it happiness. Raps has been homesick and lets the power of the Idol corrupt her normally selfless nature.

In "Lost & Found," Rapunzel and Eugene go on a journey to retrieve the fourth and final piece of the scroll that will lead them to the Dark Kingdom. They receive help from Vigor the Visionary, who reveals himself to be Lord Demanitus himself, the author of the scroll depicting the purpose of the Sundrop and Moonstone. He leads them to the maze that he hid the last piece of the scroll in. Guiding them through the maze, they obtain the last piece, which united the four into one singular map. As they are about to leave, they are attacked by a stone monster. Rapunzel and Eugene manage to defeat it. Vigor, in return, gives Eugene the jewel from his turban. That night, Eugene discovers the jewel is actually a locket. Upon opening it, he discovers a warning from Demanitus, saying that one member of their group will ultimately betray Rapunzel once they reach the Dark Kingdom. As Eugene scans the group, his eyes fall on Cassandra who flashes a sinister smile as she looks at Rapunzel, which shocks him. It was also revealed that Quirin was a member of the Brotherhood of the Dark Kingdom and that Mother Gothel was one of Demanitus's pupils who betrayed him for Zhan Tiri.

In "Destinies Collide," Rapunzel and the group have reached the end of their journey and have arrived on the outskirts of the Dark Kingdom. However, Eugene remains worried about Lord Demanitus’ prophecy that someone will turn against Rapunzel, who is doubtful of the premonition. As the group continue onward, they are attacked by an masked figure, King Edmund, who reveals himself as Eugene's father. Ultimately, Rapunzel manages to get into the chamber where the Moonstone resides, but just as she is about to touch it, Cassandra suddenly snatches it for herself and merges with it.
