7 Unofficial Disney Princesses That You Might Not Know about ...

You've got to feel sorry for the unofficial Disney princesses who aren't part of the Disney princess lineupβ€”girls are encouraged to show some Disney heroines a little extra love, but others have found that little respect comes along with their crowns. For this list I decided to focus on animated characters who are actual princesses, not other popular female characters like Megara from "Hercules" or Esmeralda from "The Hunchback of Notre Dame." I also focused on unofficial Disney princesses from movies, so TV characters aren't included. Here's a look at the Disney royalty getting mean-girled by the snobby official princesses:

1. Princess Eilonwy from "the Black Cauldron"

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Many of the unofficial Disney princesses wouldn't really fit in the official lineup, but Princess Eilonwy is a perfect candidate for inclusion. She's a strong-willed girl who looks like a cross between Princess Aurora from "Sleeping Beauty" and Rapunzel from "Tangled." However, she might be more closely related to Ariel since she's the descendant of a sea king. Unfortunately for Eilonwy, her royal blood doesn't matter to Disneyβ€”the House of Mouse treats her the same way Cinderella gets treated by her evil stepmother. This is probably because "The Black Cauldron" was a big box office bust. It's real shame that Eilonwy gets so little love since she's the first Disney princess to go on an adventure instead of simply being saved by a prince.
