Role in the Series
King Juan Ramon makes his debut in "Prince Too Charming". He first appears when Elena arrives at Cordoba Castle. Juan happily welcomes Elena to his Kingdom and voices his respect for her for defeating Shuriki. He also voices his hope she will be a good role model for his son Prince Alonso. He shows Elena tapestries depicting the history of his kingdom and a model of the bridge, both of which delight Elena. Later Elena comes back and tells him the Yacalli is going to attack the castle because Alonso upset it. Alonso runs in and tries to pin the blame on Elena and the workers but Juan sees through his lies and thanks Elena for her honesty. After Elena stops the Yacalli, Juan put Alonso to work on building the bridge to teach him a lesson in responsibility.
