    • I agree with you about Mulan not being a Princess. Mulan didn't marry a Prince, she married a General. Basically if you are a strong female role model (and animated) Disney will bend the rules. That being said, I found this on Wikipedia: "Disney Princesses were not chosen specifically for their royal titles, but rather for how well they fit into what Disney executives deemed “the Princess mythology." Mulan is an example of this concept; she has no familial ties to royalty, but is still included in the character list. Tinker Bell was once included under the same principle before it was decided she was not suited for the "mythology." She now stars in her own Disney franchise, the Disney Fairies."
