How many Disney princes are there?
There are ten official Disney princes. All of them are good and play an essential role in Disney films. However, there is that character they display which makes them be regarded as the best or worst. Here is a list of Disney Princes ranked from worst to best.
10. Prince Florian
He is Snow White’s lover. He is the very first Disney Prince. He has brown hair and a pair of blue eyes. He is known for the film Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs (1937). He is also a singer like Snow White, expressing his love through singing. He is an image of grace and true love.
Florian is not memorable like other Disney princes. Very little is known about him. The film does not mention his name, which makes audiences refer to him as the 'Prince'. Moreover, his age is unknown. He is not the story's hero, since the audiences learn little about him.
9. Prince Charming
He is the prince in the Disney film Cinderella II: Dreams Come True (2022) and Cinderella III: A Twist in Time. He is Cinderella's life partner. He is charming with his dark brown hair and fair skin, which makes all the ladies in the kingdom want him as a husband. Despite the ladies wanting him, he does not show any interest in being with them, except for Cinderella.
Charming does not serve the plot because his only role in the film is to be with Cinderella as her love. He is only there to show his undying love for Cinderella and does not offer much. This makes him a dull character. Moreover, the only thing that fans can remember about him is his name, which is used to describe a perfect life partner.
8. John Smith
He is the male character in love with Pocahontas in the film, Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World. He is a good-looking young man with long blonde hair and blue eyes. He is an English man who comes to America to colonize the land and eliminate the people living there.
On reaching America, he meets a beautiful girl, with whom he falls in love despite others being against their love. John Smith has a generic character.

7. Prince Phillip
He is also one of the official princes from Disney. He is known for his appearance in Sleeping Beauty (1959) and Disney movies like Disney Princess Enchanted Tales: Follow Your Dreams (2007). He is depicted as the love of Aurora. He goes through several traps to save the love of her life, Aurora. His love for Aurora makes him fearless, for he will do anything to save her.
