About This Quiz
Cinderella is a sweetheart. Belle is a bookworm. Ariel's a dreamer. They're all great, but give us Prince Charming, Prince Adam and Prince Eric, and we are positively smitten! Don't you think it's a racket that princesses get all the glory?
While it's true that princes often play second fiddle to their beloved princesses, they are no less important to the stories they belong to. Our favorite ladies count on them to deliver the coveted kiss, scale the soaring tower or recover the lost shoe. Who would lead the Pride Lands once Mufasa was gone? Who would be the "Prince of Thieves" and rob from the rich to give to the poor? Who would help a mute mermaid find her voice again? That's right — a prince ... or actually several princes.

Time to give this quiz the royal treatment — let's go!
