"I just dont think she would be able to control her kingdom and would always need help from the likes of Sebastian etc" -Mongoose09
*These countdown results are based off of the views of the Disney Princess fans, and not my own.*
Our princess of the month didn't get so far in this countdown. She's bubbly, sweet, and isn't happy with her father's restrictions (Although we learn that there is very good reason for them in The Little Mermaid 3). Some said that she was childish, immature, and wouldn't take the job seriously, and with her somewhat reckless decisions and selfishness, most agreed she would make the worst queen out of the princesses.
8) Snow White-
"She's too youthful to be a really good queen." -AllegroGiocoso
The fairest of them all gets the eighth spot on our list. Disney's first princess was quite an upbeat character, almost always staying cheery and positive. She was also the only girl to become a queen before running of with their prince- the death of the Evil Queen would've made her the sole monarch of her kingdom. She is kind, caring, and gentle- what a good ruler should be. She even took care of seven men, and as BelleAnastasia pointed out, that's not an easy job! However, fans found her too youthful and naive to be a good queen.
"She's better off warrior" -StarFireGirl4
Surprisingly, the hero of China takes our number seven spot. There were few specific reasons given as to why she would make make a bad queen, but it was put best by queenbee13: "I voted for Mulan because she doesn't have the talents to be a queen. Of course, she's strategic, quick thinking, and strong, but I see her as a general more than someone who is waited on hand and foot. Not to mention she would be in a position where she would be forced to act regal and proper, which is someone she just wasn't born to be."
"This is how Aurora solves a problem in Enchanted Tales: "Who would like a cow?" XD" -TigerRanma
Hailed as one of the most beautiful princesses, Aurora was both loved and hated during this countdown. Many praised her for her ability to do what was right for her kingdom and put the needs of the citizens before herself. However, critics claimed that she was too passive and would let Phillip do all the work. Her small amount of screen time didn't really help those who were pushing for her to go to #1. Whatever the reason, she just didn't have what it took to be in the top five.
"I don't see a reason why she would be a good queen. She was loner, so you can't say she would have good interactions with peasants, and I don't see her making good strategical and political choices.." -cromulanfav
This strange but special girl just made it into our top 5. Hailing from one of the most critically acclaimed animated features of all time, she's a beautiful peasant who can see past looks and knows where true beauty lies. Not only is she book smart- she's kind and caring too. But although she was a commoner, it was pointed out that she was also a loner, meaning she couldn't really connect with her people. Overall, most felt that she wouldn't be a bad queen- she just didn't measure up to the rest.
"having such a huge lifestyle gap could alienate her from her people . . . we never see her motivated about problems she knows exist in her kingdom :)" -Asvini
There's no denying it- the girl's got spunk. Too bad she didn't have what it took to get into our top three. Although some believed her to be a good person who wanted to push for reform and change, others thought the complete opposite. Many said that she was to pampered and separated from her people to really understand their situation, and some seemed to think that she just didn't care at all. There was a debate over whether she even had the power to reform and help the people of Agrabah, seeing as how she generally had no power over the kingdom in the movie. In the end, she just didn't make the cut.
"I think Cinderella's lovely, and would be a well liked Queen, but I think Tiana has the brains, dedication and adaptability to be a better more effective ruler. I see Cinderella being better with the public" -Asvini
The girl with the glass slipper got pretty high on the countdown. She danced and sang her way into Prince Charming's heart, as well as our own. She is kind, gentle caring, and an overall good person, even tolerating her nasty step-family. This, along with being a commoner and knowing how the peasants live, would arguably make her a really good queen. However, many consider her passive and believe that she should've stuck up for herself more. Some went so far as to call her weak, which is pretty debatable. Even if she didn't get the top spot many thought she deserved, she takes the bronze as our third best queen out of the princesses.
"I think she would make a good queen, but it's her ambitiousness and driven-ness that could be her downfall . . . If she is that dead focused on one activity [her resturant], what does that say about her multi-tasking skills?" -becca85
Our newest princess takes second place in this countdown. Her hardworking, determined, and ambitious personality makes her an awesome choice for a queen. Yet some people feared that her lack of knowledge about political affairs would prevent her from being a good ruler. Most though, believed that she would be a great queen, but she just wasn't the absolute best. Our girl Tiana was "Almost There", but our number one spot goes to . . .
"Pocahontas is incredibly devoted to her people and is generally good at prioritizing and making peace between nations, generally qualities good for a queen." -princesslullaby
The Native American beauty takes the gold. Most had nothing bad to say about her. She was always fair and had the best of intentions. During the countdown, she was praised for her good prioritizing and orating skills. All she ever wanted was peace. In fact, she gave up her man to make sure relations between the native and settlers stayed peaceful! Often considered the wisest of princesses, Pocahontas has truly earned her number one spot.
