The best-known version of Cinderella is the fairy tale “Cendrillon” by Charles Perrault in 1697. In 1950, it was turned into an animated feature-length film by Walt Disney. Cinderella is the eldest of all the Disney Princesses. She is 19 years of age during the events of the film. Her stepmother turned her into the family’s sole servant after the death of her father. With magical help from her Fairy Godmother, she attends a royal ball and meets the prince of her kingdom, and eventually marries him, thus freeing her from her life of servitude. For unknowns reasons she is sometimes considered the “Leader of the Disney Princesses”, even though she wasn’t the first one created.
