Queen Of Gold by Morloth88 Queen Of Gold by Morloth88

happyblush A character sheet of a original character

The story’s prologue:

The blond and handsome crown prince of the Great Isles is at first out sailing on his grand tour. A taste of freedom. But duty is always close for a royal. He ports at the Sun’s Golden Kingdom. He is tasked to try to open up passage past the Golden kingdom for the Great Isles. He isn’t very successful and but during the negotiations meets the king’s fifth child and third daughter. They fall head over heels in love. Queue song.

The two of them marry in the Golden Kingdom Bell Bullet *Animated* (Outline) - F2U  and their union speeds the crown prince’s mission to a success.

The story
The crown prince cuts his grand tour short and returns home with his mission complete and his new bride on his arm.

Returning home suddenly married to a foreign princess without conferring with his father or even informing of his nuptials, angers both the court and the king and queen.

She is not whom they wanted the crown prince to marry, nor will the pale people of their land warm to this foreign princess who will one day be their queen.


The king informs his son of unease brewing at the country border and it is the crown prince’s duty to see to the unrest. He is forced to leave his new bride alone surrounded by people who want her gone.

She must win over the royal couple, the court and the people. Not to mention traverse malignant gossip, slander and maybe even pure assassination attempts.

At first she will try to win them over by following their rules, the norms and restrictions set by this new society and country.

Soon how ever she will realize that the cards are stacked against her and she will have to use all of her clever mind, wit and charm to change their minds and find allies. She needs to not let herself be trod on, nor let herself be changed in to something she is not.

She will become the Queen of Gold.:heartofgold:

My entry for the 48th Contest over at :icondisney-club: “Princess design sheet challenge”
I wanted a "be yourself" as well as a "stand up for yourself" story.
I personally like a bit of court intrigue and would relish a resourceful and cleaver princess.  I'm a sucker for a lovestory, :heart: rvmp but I would be happy to have it over with in the first 10-15 min (or less) of the movie and then we can get on with the juicy stuff. :plotting: 
And have actual princess duties that isn’t just fashion and tea parties... :grumpy:

I like that her lovely long hair is a wig. It's an usual quirk for a princess I think. I like her story too, it'd be interesting to watch play out. Being surrounded with people who want you gone... Now that's powerful imagery.

Yes, Princesses aren't allowed to have short hair. So I cheated and made her long flowy hair a wig :D

It would be very intimidating.

Rapunzel has short hair. But it grows back in the TV show apparently. I mean I'm glad it grew back because of hair goals but...

To say the least it would.

I hope the story does the original film justice, even if I would orefer the animation to be CGI style like the movie, I know Disney aren't going to cough up the money for the sake of consistency.

Huh... neat character. At first it looked like her eyes were glowing, but looking closer, I suppose it's eye make-up that makes that look. And her wearing a wig is interesting to me. Also, nice head shots. ...For some reason I think she looks prettier in the expressions with the wig on, but it might be the eye make-up making her eyes look bigger and more expressive. I also like the design of the gold dress.

(goes to read the description)
I like what happens when the prince returns home. It's kind'a like there's a, "hum... I hadn't really thought past 'happily ever after' when I fell in love with her." Just, the idea of him being irresponsible and not thinking about even mentioning to anyone that he was getting married. Interesting how she ends up separated from the prince not long after that. But, yeah, the court intrigue stuff sounds like it could be interesting. I suppose it might would be a little like Elsa, where she had to deal with stuff on her own and was a strong girl.
...you didn't really explain her outfits and wig, did you? I'm guessing the gold dress and wig is when she's trying to fit in to her husband's culture? But, I would think all the yellow would fit in with the Golden Kingdom royalty...?

That is a lot of questions. I am guessing you must be very taken with my character to want to know so much about her and her story. I obviously didn't feel like I could fit in the entire story in the description. It'd be a books worth for sure :)
So I just teased the beginning and basically hinted at the rest.

But as you ask *cracks knuckles*

The prince did think it through, he decided to make a selfish decision to choose is own happiness in regards to who he'd spend his life with. Knowing he'd never get permission if he asked, so he decided the "better ask forgiveness than
permission" approach.
He did not count on his father outmanoeuvring him and leaving his bride alone. it is easier to get rid of the interloper if her knight isn't there to protect her. and it lowers to chances of her getting an heir. The king and queen might want the princess to agree to an annulment, or at lest have her flee back to her homeland. But others will wanna outright kill her.

The princess's golden outfit is a mix of her and this new sociality. She might not like the wig and the lightning of her face (very commonly used in Hollywood with their darker actors), but she made sure everything was gold. Because she (like many RL monarchs) uses her clothes politicly. She is clad in gold to remind the people who see her that, sure, she didn't come with neighbouring allies, new land, vast armies close by, but she came with new trading and lots of gold.
Think of the passage past the Sun's golden kingdom a bit like this world's "straits of Gibraltar" or Europa, just further away. it is a key point is trading and sailing and very difficult if one have not passage past it.
She is still a princess and she still came with ties and allies, they are just far away and very different from her new people.

Did I answer all your queries? :)

I think I'd paused to mention whatever came to my mind while looking/reading. She is pretty unique, and that makes it interesting.
Hmm, I guess it wouldn't have made sense for the prince to just stay in the Golden Kingdom, where her family seemed okay with him? That, despite being selfish to choose love, he still felt a responsibility to his kingdom?
I like that about the golden outfit. She sounds pretty smart and determined, to think of that stuff, and what you said about it being a mix of her and the new society, with her still keeping part of herself in it.
I guess you answered everything. Thanks for that. Though, don't feel obligated to answer everything that ends with a question-mark, as I mostly just say what I think, including little ponderings I think of. I don't mean to sound like I'm demanding answers, just mentioning things that come to mind.
Hm, I suppose it's bad of me to prefer her in the gold outfit, but it's just my idea of beauty, which depends on location and genetics. Too bad everyone's idea of beauty can't match, but I guess it's good that there's a lot of different ideals because there's a lot of different types of people. I wonder how the people in her kingdom would think of her prince's looks.

Seeing as he is the "crown" prince. That be a really selfish move. He is to be king after his father. Abdication is rather drastic.
Our golden princess is the fifth child to the king of the Sun's Golden kingdom, no chance for the thrown so her contribution would have been to be married of for political gain any way.
 Our princess wasn't seen as a particular beauty in her own kingdom, pretty sure, but they value curves and big hair. So she didn't have a intended waiting in the sidelines.

The Great Isles crown prince would be rather exotic and his eyes would be very admired, but he is weak, pale and his hair has no life. He is pretty enough, but more exotic than adhering to their beauty standard. 
Who said the prince got along well with her people? There was a reason the Isles didn't have trading rights or passage past the Sun's Golden kingdom.

Oh yes, I should've recalled about them not wanting to agree to give him trading rights. My mind was thinking about how the royal family must've allowed him to marry her. But I guess there's a difference between their stations and situations and the such, as you say. I'm not too good with all that politcial stuff. ^_^" You know quite a lot (I suppose that's one reason you made a character like her), and it's kind'a facinating to hear about.

That is one of the things that bother me when Disney uses princesses. They have to deal with a lot of political problems, and try to make their kingdom prosper and Disney doesn't address their power.

Although maybe a Disney movies about politics might just bore the intended audience haha.

I wasn't thinking round-table discussion, I was thinking more PG game of thrones politics, with gossip, rumours, cold shoulders, plots and stage shows etc That could be more interesting. ^^;
I know. the stoey from my mind I based this on wasn't meant for children of five or eight. ^^; But I hoped it would be serviceable for the contest ^^;
