  1. If I recall my history lessons from highschool, in medieval Europe, due to not having actual power, women could only ascend to the crown through marriage, they would essentially remain Princesses until they were married, making the man King and her Queen.

    Again, if I recall correctly: If the king died but the queen stayed alive, until a daughter was married or a prince came of age, the queen would be “Queen Reagent” in charge of keeping the kingdom in order but unable to change any laws or affect it in any major way.

  2. The problem with Cinderella is that she doesn’t “actively” pursue her goals. She doesn’t try to escape, fight back, go her own way, etc. She depends on a fairy godmother’s magic to get her out rather than self-reliance. It’s not a work ethic problem, it’s a passivity problem

  3. Perhaps some of them can rule over a principality, not a kingdom.
