I'm an expert at this so hear me out

Snow White: German (not dutch, there are no castles in the netherlands)
Cinderella: French
Sleeing Beauty: most likely great Britain (there is no obvious distinction if it's French or German, so that's the best guess)
Ariel: Denmark
Belle: French (obviously)
Jasmine: iraqi (even though the fashion and cultural attitude is highly inaccurate)
Pocahontas: Jamestown, Virginia US
Mulan: Alaska haha jk..... China
Tiana: New Orleans, Louisiana US
Rapunzel: German (Saxon) (there are also many claimes it takes place in Turkey or another Ocean surrounded country, but no ones really sure because they based the town on Fantasy land XD)
Merida: Scotland

Belle & Cinderella are from France.
Jasmine is from the fictional city of Agrabah, which is based off Bagdhad, so she is from Iraq.
Ariel is from Denmark
Mulan is from China
Pocahontas is from North America (Virginia)
Snow White is from Germany
Aurora...in Sleeping Beauty it never outright explains where she is from, but possibly Germany or England.

I'm going to argue Germany for Aurora--her castle is based on Neuschwanstein.

I'll agree with the folks who say French for Cinderella. Her stepmother is Lady Tremaine, and a family named DuBois (Doo-bwahhhhhh) is mentioned at the ball.

Belle, French, duh.
Jasmine, Arabic, ditto.

Snow White and Ariel were both listed for their best known authors: Germany's Grimms and Denmark's Andersen, respectively. Though, technically, I suppose Ariel is Atlantican...just as Giselle is Andalasian.

Pocahontas and Tiana, American--though in different ways.

Esmerelda, unknown... Gypsies in France in 1482 could be Muslim, Jewish, bi-racial, tri-racial, anything the French aristocracy didn't like--hence, the living in exile. Maybe some Spanish in her? Perhaps North African?

Megara, Greek.
Mulan, Chinese.
Jane, English.
Nala, African... ;-)

And Rapunzel? We could guess as we did for Snow White and argue Grimms Brothers = German. But, rumor has it she's stylized in French Roccoco, so we'll see. Guess they're giving up on the polite nod to globalization and going back to indefinable western-European white girls.

The Disney Princesses are from these nations! And As i have the proofs there will be no further arguements!!
1)Snow White: Netherlands/Dutch Republic
Wikipedia tells this and the article is semi-protected too so this cant be wrong!
2)Cinderella: France
Again by wikipedia and in the movie whenat the end Lady tremaine goes to wake her daughtrs to tell them about Duke's coming the micegus and jaq also follow her through the opening of a FLEUR DE LIS sign which is an important FRENCH SIGN!
3) Aurora: French
At the end when the fairies appear in the balcony there is a cloth hanging which shows FLEUR DE LIS signs which is an important French sign!
4) Ariel: Russia
Ursula says in poor unfortunate souls that the wind come out of the Caspian Sea proving that Ariel was either eurasian or Asian and not purely european
5) Belle: French
6) Pocahontas: Virginian/American
7) Mulan: Chinese
8) Tiana: Canadian(New Orleans)
9) Rapunzel: Turkish
The Castle Shape and Kingdom Dance tune are from a Turkish Annual Festival.,., Afterall John Lasseter stated that Rapunzel will not be a European Princess butfrom either Africa or Western Asia!
10) Jasmine: Saudi Arabia
The first song by the storyteller tells us they are Arabian Nights!

So you think Tiana is from Canada, and Rapunzel is from...Turkey? I think you may need to watch the movies again. And Wikipedia is usually right, except when it's not.

Arabian nights are not from Saudia Arabia they are from Iraq or Iran. So princess Jasmine is not saudi arabian.

luna1990 said:
Well, I agree that Belle and Cinderella are from France and Jasmine might be from Iran. Mulan, Pocahontas and Tiana are easy as well.

With Aurora it might be a little tricky. The Names Phillip an Stefan or Stephan ( Prince and Auroras father) are originally greek the name Hubertus (Phillips father) has german origin. From the movies design it could be medieval Germany or England, but you must keep in mind that in that time (depends on when it takes place) Europe wasn't the Europe we know today. And maybe Disney just took different europian Symbols, names etc and mixed them up a little bit and out came this europian like country.
There is also both a german (Brother Grimm) and french (Charles Perrault) version of the fairytale...

The forest in Snow White could be the Black Forest in Germany, but otherwhise I can't find any clues about it in the movie. Of course it would be only logical to asume that she is german as the fairy tale was collected by the Brothers Grimm.

I don't know how you can get the Idea that Rapunzel is turkish though...

In general I think it's an interesting discussion but really...Disney is American and I don't mean to be rude but some Americans have sometimes a little weird image of Europe and mix thinks a little bit up sometimes ;) So I wouldn't be to pig-headed on that topic.

And the Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany is not for Aurora, it's for Snow White. Either way, it makes more sense because the Black Forest is near that castle .

Some of the answers on here are stupid! Tiana, from Canada? Really?
I am going to guess at a few. Based on fashions, names, etc.
Cinderella: Russia based on the clothes, her stepsisters names and the fashions of the men as well.
Aurora: I personally think she is Italian. There are blonde Italians in North Italy.
Ariel: Just guessing, maybe English or Scottish. I really think Scottish though.
Belle: Obviously French.
Tiana: American. Duh.
Merida: Scottish. Her accent gives that away.
Jasmine: Middle Eastern.
Pocahontas: Native American.
Mulan: is NOT really a Princess... Her beaux was a Captain, not a prince.
Snow White: I think Dutch or German.
Rapunzel: Probably German.

Umm...I'm sorry, but how can you call some of these answers stupid and then say Ariel is from Scotland? Did you watch The Little Mermaid? Did you notice the WARM climate that is apparent by her dress, the sea creatures, etc? Scotland is not warm...the North Atlantic is actually very cold. If you had said Greek or Mediterranean I wouldn't have said anything, because at least that's close. If you watch the movie, Ursula says "come winds of the CASPIAN SEA"...that's at the Southern end of Russia, Kazakhstan, Iran, etc.

TheFabulousFAN said:

SnowWhite:Germany,German judging by her dress,shoes,and castle as well as the queens dress

Cinderella: since her name is Italian she is Italian there is some confusion since her mouse friend is named jaq which is French and some think she is from England because of the clock but the original story as well as the disney story she is in Italy cinder-ELLA as well as her step sister's names drizella and Anastasia also even though many words are French like her step mother (lady tremaine) and they do say Madame and mademoiselle French was the Maine language in that point of time and being half Italian myself I think that she is Italian

Aroura/sleeping beauty:English, England based on dresses worn by characters and name of characters

Ariel: most likely Denmark as far as land mass but her story like every other fairy tale is mythical so she her self is from atlantica or Atlantis, atlantian

Belle: French, France obviously

Jasmine:Arabian, Arabia her city is the mythical city of agraba

Pocahontas:American, America james town Virginia obviously

Mulan: China

Tiana: American,America her state Louisiana city New Orleans take place in the 1920's

Rapunzel: an off charted island but based on the European clothes most likely German, Germany

Merida:Scottish, Scottland Obviously

Un-Official princesses/ heroines

Anna/ice queen from the new movie FROZEN: I'm not sure if she is considered a Disney Princess yet but she is from a fictitious New England mountain called mount holliston though this can be debatable

Kida: Atlantian, Atlantis like ariel so I'm guessing by Denmark possibly, it takes place in 1914

Megaera/Meg: Ancient Greece

Esmerelda:French, France Notre dame tower

I am aware that there are more disney heroine but these are the only main ones I considered doing

Silverrose1991 said:
These are my guesses.

Snow White: German

William and Jacob Grimm, the authors of the original fairytale, were German. Also, Snow White wear clogs while working as a maid for her stepmother. Clogs were wore by Germanic people that time, I believe.

Cinderella: French

There are fleur-de-lis on the walls of Cinderella's Chateau. The title "mademoiselle" (miss in French) is used many times through the movie. I believe that the surname of one elegible maiden at the ball is Dubois. That's French. Also, the version of the tale that Disney based of his movie is French.

Aurora: England

The names sound very English to me - Stephan, Phillip, Leah, Samson.

Ariel: Danish

I'm not so sure. The author of the fairytale was Danish. However, I've read an article in livejournal that said it was probably set in Portugal or Monaco, which I think is very reasonable. I've also heard people say it's set in Spain.

Belle: French

There are French words used through the movie (bonjour, mademoiselle, madame, l'amour, etc), Lumiere says it's France in Be Our Guest and the characters' names are French. Mrs. Potts, Chip and Cogsworth are English, though.

Jasmine: Arabian

The opening song is called "Arabian Nights" But I've read that the culture show in the movie is more Iraqui than Arabian.

Pocahontas: Powhatan (Native American)

The movie is set in Jamestown, Virginia, USA. It's one of the main aspects of the plot.

Mulan: China

There is a lot of Chinese elements in the movie: The Emperor of China, the Wall of China, Chinese names, the characters' physical appearance, the culture, the Ancestors, dragons.

Tiana: American

New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. The opening song is called "Down in New Orleans". Tiana's specialty is gumbo, which is, I believe, a dish of Cajun Cuisine. There's also a bayou in the movie and Lottie has a southern accent, no?

Rapunzel: German or Austrian

I don't know what to say. But I think the clothing is from Renaissance, the authors of the fairytale are the Brothers Grimm and Mozart is mentioned. He is Austrian, I believe.

Merida: Scotish

The Stonehenge circles shown in the movie, the characters' accent and the men wear kilts - and other cultural symbols, but I don't know them.
