The King is a minor character in Disney's 2010 film Tangled. He is the father of Rapunzel, and the husband of the Queen of Corona.


There is no specific backstory dedicated to revealing how the King rises up to rule the kingdom. Though, it would appear that he is very much liked and supported by the kingdom and the denizens that reside within.



Father to Rapunzel, and husband to the beautiful Queen, the King is the ruler of Corona. He is first seen by his wife's sickbed while she is heavily pregnant with their daughter, and lighting the lantern with the Queen later on after Rapunzel's birth. Every year on Rapunzel's birthday, the King and queen release a lantern for their daughter. He is seen releasing the lantern again, the night Rapunzel arrives with Flynn Rider to watch the lanterns float. The King returns to the scene towards the end when Rapunzel returns to reunite with him and the Queen. He is then seen again smiling and hugging Rapunzel and the Queen. Although the King, like the Queen and many other minor and supporting characters, does not speak, he has vivid and lively facial emotions and body languages that loudly and clearly express his thoughts and ideas.

Tangled Ever After

In the short film, Rapunzel and Eugene's wedding day has finally arrived. The King is obviously present the day of, and walks Rapunzel down the aisle. After escorting his daughter to the altar, he sat down to join his wife in watching the ceremony as the priest officiated the wedding vows. Upon asking Maximus and Pascal for the rings, everyone, the King included, were shocked to see the two animals covered in tar, and stared awkwardly as they held up the rings to the happy couple. After exchanging rings, the priest officially declared Rapunzel and Eugene married. The King hugged his wife while the rest of the audience cheered.

Once Upon a Time

The King and Queen make a brief appearance at the end of the episode "The Tower", where they are seen reuniting with Rapunzel after years of separation.


  • Like his beloved queen, the King is a non-speaking character in the film.
  • He is one of the few fathers of a Disney Princess not to be a widower.
